People Analytics ∙ Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) ∙ Strategic Workforce Planning


What exactly is the big deal about this whole concept of People Analytics, also known as Workforce Analytics (aka HR Analytics)...???

The story starts with a simple fact – you cannot ignore digitalization and stay competitive in business, let alone be a market leader in any business. We live in a world where a smartphone app can change the market landscape in a matter of weeks. Love it or hate it – you can’t ignore it. Improved workforce productivity and performance, enhanced employee experience and wellbeing, and better HR reporting at a strategic level, are essential to the success of organizations and their ability to survive, now and in the decades to come. All this comes at a time when talented and highly skilled employees are not just becoming harder to recruit and retain, but actively rethinking their desired relationships with employers.

So, the HR has to go digital; and as organizations look to cope with these changes, they are embracing the workforce analytics at ever greater pace. These analytics can be used to improve workforce productivity, enhance employee experience and wellbeing, and increase the impact of HR overall. Undoubtedly, workforce analytics is central to the future of HR, as it lies at the heart of initiatives to personalize the employee experience, optimize organizational design and improve team collaboration and effectiveness.

Now, that is – by any accounts – a pretty big deal. And the good news is:

The Future of HR is here

Empowering HR with People Analytics for Success in Digital Economy

Most organizations still operate in hierarchical 2.0 mode, while the modern HR has reached the 4.0 stage. The HR 4.0 now has the capability to influence business decisions, by providing data-based, timely and exact business insight. The HR 4.0 can provide the CEO and other C-level decision-makers with data-based facts to make the key business decisions, instead of relying on the “gut-feel”. People Analytics brings the paradigm shift in how business decisions are made, how risk is evaluated and ultimately what business impact an organization will have. We are no longer talking about the need to have HR at the table in l'art pour l'art HR terms. People Analytics finally gives the HR that truly strategic role... and a seat at the table.

This conference series and subsequent Masterclasses bring you the blueprint on how to successfully implement HR Analytics at strategic and tactical/ops level. You will hear real-life examples form the giants like Amazon, as well as some of the World's leading academic and business minds in the field, presenting data-based facts & figures, trends & tendencies for the near, mid and long-term outlook of the Future of Work.

Technology is changing the world of work and big data plays a key role in the process. Sorting out the “ocean of information” is the game-changer. HR analytics is not yet-another-hype, but a trend that is growing and is here to stay. It is increasingly becoming the “way we do things around here”. If you don’t have the right data – you are uninformed. If you have too much of unsorted data – you are overwhelmed. As a busy HR person, you can’t afford either. The quality of your decisions has a direct and lasting impact on your organization. The HR analytics provide a solution to that challenge.

HR & PEOPLE ANALYTICS FORUM is a multi-city, annually recurring conference series dedicated to presenting, understanding and embracing the use of data-driven analytical approach in HR function, and business as a whole. The data-driven decision-making process is recognized as the key differentiator in today’s workplace, giving companies who apply it properly a substantial edge.

London, Amsterdam, Berlin, San Francisco and NYC are regularly hosting world-class HR analytics conferences ever more often. We wanted to bring some of that world closer to you!

Feedback & Insights

what people say

I run a large LinkedIn group of 1.2 million members and I always wanted to get them more interested in HR Analytics. This conference has been able to give me some really good take-aways, that hopefully I can get them excited about it in a LinkedIn group and talk up more about it.
Pamela Harding, SPHR CEO ∙ Metzano
The ManpowerGroup has chosen HR & PEOPLE ANALYTICS FORUM, as a perfect place to show that we are supporting the HR community fully in today's challenging environment. As a lead sponsor, we are very, very happy and we're already planning to support the conference next year.
Nebojsa Biskup General Manager ∙ ManpowerGroup
Conference really fulfilled my expectations, listening to speakers, their stories, their experiences, but also exchanging with colleagues. Asking them questions, how they've sold difficult situations, made decisions upon them. I really learned a lot from delegates, not only from speakers.
Mihaela Smadilo CHRO ∙ Oradian
It’s a really good intended conference, I had an opportunity to talk to many attendees and what I’ve really enjoyed is hearing new speakers. A lot of conferences feature all the same speakers, but here we got both global and a local perspective of the speakers from the CEE region.
David Green Founder & CEO ∙ Zandel
Here in Budapest it's fantastic! The environment is quite cool, I heard so many new things today, but I also saw some old friends in the filed, so it's also a great place to network. Here you get new perspectives, you learn from other people in the field and you build up your network.
Marielle Sonnenberg, PhD. HR Director ∙ Walters Kluwer
I really love teaching. Whenever I can share my knowledge and expertise, that we gained doing hundreds of projects, I really love to share that. For me that’s really important. The number of people at this conference, both attendees and speakers is really fascinating!
