Closing keynote: becoming a data-driven HR function

With the tools available today it is far easier to assimilate data, and in theory, derive insights and create business value. Also, it should be easy for HR to transform itself into a data-driven, decision-making function. However, there still exist cultural and technical obstacles to overcome in order for HR  functions to become a data-savvy. This session will explore:

  • shifting mindsets and achieving a culture which embraces utilising Big Data for HR
  • the importance of storytelling to demonstrate value
  • applying predictive analytics and a consulting mind-set to create value for stakeholders
