A hands-on course to excel in statistical analysis and advanced data visualisation

Virtual Training via Zoom: 11 – 12 August 2020

Course Introduction

Practical HR Analytics for Powerful Insights

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 Derrick Yuen, an analytics expert who has comprehensive in-depth knowledge of the region, this two-day course is designed to provide a comprehensive hands-on solution to organise, monitor and analyse HR data with the objective of providing tremendous value to organisations. This is done through informing what is going on with employees, explaining the reasons underpinning organisational successes and failures, and guiding future decision making with greater confidence.

This workshop is targeted at HR practitioners who would like to build on their prior intermediate-level knowledge of HR analytics, enhance their capabilities and acquire essential skills in data preparation, data analysis, statistical knowledge and data visualisation. 

Through various case studies and interactive hands-on exercises, delegates will be able to effectively communicate business value to senior management, and witness how analytics can serve as powerful insights for maximum business impact.
