HR & Workforce Analytics Innovation Summit London (
12th & 13th June 2017
Many businesses are failing to collate meaningful information about their workforce, which hinders ability to drive growth, speed up decision making & improve employee satisfaction.
HR Analytics is becoming increasingly essential to identify the skills and roles needed for long term growth. If progress is to be made organisations need to re-skill, up-skill and motivate their staff; HR Analytics & Metrics can demonstrate where action needs to be taken and where HR programs need to be edited.
This summit will bring together HR leaders who have seen the value in investing in HR & Workforce Analytics to support talent tracking & management, workforce segmentation, diversity & inclusion strategies and improving employee satisfaction.

HR & Workforce Analytics Summit San Francisco (
June 19 & 20 2017
The modern Human Resources function collects vast quantities of data. Increasingly, this data presents an opportunity to create and utilize a wide range of metrics for recruitment and performance.
However, the potential pitfalls for successful use of analytics are apparent. The gap between traditional training and technical competence, the governance of employee & applicant data, and the decision on where to invest has made the area treacherous terrain for organizations starting out with workforce analytics.
How do you bridge the knowledge gap between the HR role & analytics? How do you ensure transparency of data usage? How do you avert risk of removing the 'human factor' with over-reliance on your data dashboards?
The HR & Workforce Analytics Innovation Summit will address these issues and more, bringing together HR leaders who are implementing and experimenting with new analytical methods - driving remarkable improvements in their organizations.
