Day One

Measurement is an increasingly important aspect of HR professional capability. Good measurement can help maximise the effectiveness of HR strategy and operations, and can also help convince business colleagues that HR is managing itself in a business-like way. However, most organisations’ approaches to HR measurement fail to capture the benefits of these opportunities. Research also suggests that this area is one of HR’s weakest capabilities currently.

However, some organisations are learning to do more with their measures. Advances in approaches, tools and technologies, coupled with developing experience in these areas, are allowing organisations to monitor, evaluate and improve the implementation of their HR strategies much more effectively than before.

Attend this seminar to learn how measures and metrics can be developed in a way that helps to drive the success of your HR strategy, your people and the organisation. Learn why an HR strategy map and scorecard provide the most effective framework for developing and managing measurement within your own organisation and rehearse this approach for your own organisation.


Day Two

We are currently seeing many different advances in the area of HR analytics, generated by our increasing understanding of using analytical tools in HR, and often, though not always, supported by developments in technology.

Analytics can be used to confirm our understanding about the way that our particular HR practices and organisations work. Common examples include identifying the most important talent in a business and how these people can be recruited, managed and paid more effectively. And analytics can also be used to add further intelligence to the metrics and KPIs which have been chosen to help monitor new workforce strategies.

Whether or not you believe that HR needs to become a data science there is no doubt that we need to make better use of data at our disposal.

Attend this seminar to learn how to optimise your workforce planning and measurement activities through the use of various analytical approaches.
