This session will help you understand the steps needed to harness the data in your organization to construct an evidence-based HR approach/strategy and make better decisions. 

Is your HR team a strategic weapon? Do you have a strong voice in the executive boardroom?

Based on a review of multiple case studies, you'll understand how utilizing an evidence-based approach to HR can help to drive better business outcomes and a more impactful and less costly HR function. After this session you will be able to:

  • Define evidence-based HR.
  • Describe the steps necessary to implement this approach in your organization. 
  • Apply this approach into a manner that increases HR's impact and maximizes existing resources.
  • Understand how and why this approach increases HR's organizational credibility.
