Thank you for attending the HR Analytics Conference and Workshop, 27-28 November 2018, Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, London

Building confidence to drive evidence-based decisions

People analytics continues to be an ever-growing agenda for organisations. However, HR departments still lag behind in its successful adoption and implementation, which affects their ability to act as real business partners to their organisation.

The latest CIPD global survey report on HR Analytics revealed that ‘just over one-fifth (21%) of UK HR professionals are confident conducting advanced analytics’. This is clearly a gap that needs to be bridged if we want to provide real value for our people and businesses.

What does a data-optimised HR function look like, and how can we get deeper insights into well-being, performance and productivity to drive lasting and positive change?

This year’s CIPD HR Analytics Conference and Workshop agenda has been specifically designed to help you become a confident user and interpreter of people analytics to drive evidence-based decisions through new predictive capabilities. You will learn how to unlock valuable data insights and get the tools to build a data-driven HR team, through:

  • Inspiring, replicable and detailed case studies from the private and public sectors: Senior representatives from De Beers, the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Office for National Statistics, Network Rail and more will be sharing their own stories, practical tips and best practice so you can start applying them too into your own organisation
  • Practical breakout sessions in two streams: Tailor your day according to your most pressing needs, and build the analytics skills needed to meet your own business objectives, whether you are just starting out or looking to step up in your analytics journey
  • Interactive panel discussions on crucial practical and ethical challenges pertaining to analytics, from the implementation of GDPR and key ethical considerations in data usage to predictive analytics and building risk awareness
  • Opportunities to discuss your own challenges and potential solutions with experts and successful practitioners, and to benchmark against your peers
