PEOPLE ANALYTICS : What is it? How does it help drive performance?

Sep 24, 2019 · Toronto, Canada

With continuous advances and increased deployment of technology solutions, leaders have never had so much data about their workforce; however, many organizations still make key decisions about their workforce based on instinct and intuition. People analytics is a data-driven approach to managing people at work and helps leaders unlock the power of data – increasing rigor, reducing bias, and improving performance.

According to a Gartner study, over 70% of leaders consider people analytics as a high priority in their organization and expect to enhance resource allocation towards it in the coming years.

In this session, Priyanka will share insights on how people analytics can improve the way organizations identify, attract, develop, and retain talent. She will share examples of how people analytics has been used to make data-backed talent decisions and create an impact.

You Will Learn:
• What is People Analytics?
• How organizations are using People Analytics to drive performance?
• How to tell a story using data so that it creates a business impact?
• Who should be getting into this field? What are the skills required to be successful in People Analytics?
