What is People Science? The Role of Data in HR Technology
March 27 @ 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm
Speaker: Justin McWhorter
Join us as we discuss People Science, what it is and what it means for the future of HR. For years, HR professionals have been tasked with handling many of the traditional transactional tasks with onboarding, benefits, payroll, recruiting, etc. More recently, as the speed of business and need for more data-driven decisions has increased, we find ourselves more and more in need of a way to understand our People Data, where we stand today, and where we are going.
People Science is bringing all of the People Data together to move from “gut feel” decision making to truly understanding what is happening with the People in your organization. With the right combination of technology and new mindset around the importance of our People Data, organizations can dramatically improve their decision making around people decisions and chart a better course for the future.
This session will help lay the groundwork for your People Science initiatives and discuss the technology, training and change management involved.
- Understand the basics of People Science and core concepts in this growing field.
- Discuss how to build a framework to capture and leverage your People Data for better data-driven decision making.
- Learn techniques to help drive awareness and adoption of People Science and a more analytical approach to handling People decisions across your organization
