Workforce Analytics vs. Gut Feel

Presented by Jeff Higgins, CEO, Human Capital Management Institute

Businesses have never depended so much on talent as they do today. The number of talent management decisions that need to be made has increased, and yet the use of gut feel seems to also be increasing. How can HR adopt evidence-based talent management practices without treating employees as an expense to minimize?

In this presentation, HCMI CEO, Jeff Higgins, will answer this question and discuss the role of analytics in today's talent management practices. He will also walk through real-life case studies where analytics has been used to optimize HR decisions. Key learning points include:

  • The need for workforce analytics in modern talent management practice
  • How HR can answer questions that matter for C-suite executives
  • Workforce analytics success case studies

The Optimal Work Environment: How HR Can Use Technology to Develop EQ

Presented by Morgan Mercer, Founder, Vantage Point

The Future of Work is front of mind for every organization, but the road to change is long and inertia often stalls even the best of agendas.

Companies rush to recruit, retain, and train the best talent - often overlooking EQ for IQ. "Culture First" companies are becoming popular, and there is a rise in adoption of Diversity & Inclusion agendas. But Diversity & Inclusion agendas are often only a piece of the puzzle, and the core foundation of the agenda is teaching the most difficult skills to teach - empathy and communication.

Can you really train and develop EQ the same way you can train and develop IQ? Can you have Diversity & Inclusion agendas without prioritizing EQ? How are EQ and D&I agendas linked?How do we take EQ and D&I beyond a ""nice to have""? And most importantly, how do you design technology solutions that work?"
