Strategic HR Analytics for Decision Making

Telling a persuasive data story to influence business decision making

23 – 24 March 2020, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Course Introduction

Strategic HR Analytics for Decision Making

A 2015 survey by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) found that 83% of HR leaders from organisations across Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong agree that HR analytics is helping to build the long-term strategy of their business.

Much has been said about the potential of data analytics in augmenting and improving decision-making process. In recent years, HR analytics has also gained significant buy-ins from senior executives.

However, not many organisations are doing it right due to a combination of technical, cultural and capability factors. One of the key factors is the lack of analytics talents among the HR team. While organisations may utilise external contractors to jump start their analytics journey or work on specific analytics projects, the potential of HR analytics can only be sustainable if the organisation is able to build such capabilities internally.

Led by an analytics expert who has comprehensive in-depth knowledge of the region, this course with a strategic focus is targeted at helping delegates become analytics-savvy HR leaders and business partners. While senior HR leaders and business leaders may not require deep technical skills in data management, they need to be effective users of HR analytics capable of harnessing the power of analytics to develop and implement HR strategy, and to improve people management practices.

This workshop is designed to help HR leaders and business partners develop and enhance their business partnering capabilities with data analytics, with the objective of informing, explaining and guiding decision making for improved business performance.
