“HR in the Business: How can data analytics better help keep all the balls in the air”

Finance has always benefited from a wealth of data and information on which to base decisions but, in most organizations, the data on people has lagged behind. However, today, HR functions are increasingly collecting and analyzing workforce and human capital data to inform robust human resources decisions. Analytics can provide a powerful platform for collaboration between the finance and HR department. When data is consistent and mature across both functions, finance and HR leaders have the opportunity to make decisions from a more informed and strategic standpoint and it becomes easier to gain greater visibility into how key aspects of human capital management directly affect corporate performance. This helps the business to identify opportunities and risks and to understand the drivers of performance in the business and again supports the overall HR function to become a stronger strategic business contributor to solutions from the outset, instead of being called in to address potential barriers.

By attending this conference you will gain a better understanding of how data analytics can positively impact your business and HR. You will have the opportunity to discuss related issues with your peers and hear from subject matter experts who have successfully supported many companies successfully leverage data analytics to help drive business performance.
