Date: Thursday, October 19, 2017

Time: 2:00 PM EDT

Duration: 60-minutes

With mounting pressures to link HR investments to business outcomes, the datafication of HR via people analytics has become a top priority for many HR organizations today. Yet many organizations are unsure how to move forward with this important initiative or how to make the business case for it.

According to a new study by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, while 67 percent of CEOs receive reports on basic HR metrics, only 24 percent are briefed on analytics that connect people metrics to business metrics. Ultimately, there is still a disconnect between strategically significant HR activities and what is captured in HR metrics.

Why has people analytics become the leading priority of HR organizations today? What value does the datafication of HR promise? And how can you make a business case that is specific to your organization?

In this webinar, workforce intelligence expert Paul Rubenstein will explore the people analytics revolution that is taking HR by storm, providing guided examples from organizations who have successfully managed the behavior change. You will learn how to:

  • Investigate the key issues that are keeping your stakeholders up at night.
  • Create a sense of urgency to garner more buy-in for your people analytics plans.
  • Build a story that links key issues to business outcomes.
  • Avoid common pitfalls and barriers.
