Repeated Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.

Regardless of the size of the HR department, organizations are calling on their HR practitioners to bring practical knowledge of analytics in setting up and executing a people strategy that supports business outcomes. Learn the basics of conducting exploratory data analysis and identify the next steps in growing your organization’s analytics capabilities. Through an interactive case study created specifically for HR professionals new to analytics, discover how to address the challenge created when a CEO says, “Can't we use analytics to solve our people problems?” Data visualizations created with Tableau Desktop provide  valuable insights into workforce trends, and help attendees pinpoint talent management problems and learn how to confirm or deny what the CEO already “knows.”

Learning Objectives:

  • A step-by-step approach to starting your first HR analytics project.
  • Specific data-structuring strategies for analytics and visualization.
  • Different analytics and data visualization approaches (e.g., descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics).
  • Evaluating and creating a plan to grow your organization's analytics capabilities.
