Course Introduction

Building A Compelling HR Data Story 

One of the most overlooked and undervalued aspects along the analytics value chain is in the “last mile” of value; specifically, how to tell a concise, coherent, and compelling story from the HR data to drive people decisions and actions. While there is ample supply of hard skills and capabilities in
many analytics functions; the softer skills of contextualisation and storytelling are in much shorter supply. In fact, Forbes had foresaw the emergence of this trends as early as 2016.

“Data are just summaries of thousands of stories – tell a few of those stories to make the data meaningful.” Dan Heath

This workshop aims to provide a broad but practical overview of the entire analytics value chain; with a focus on building a compelling narrative to get an audience to care and to act. This includes how to glean pivotal messages from data, how to structure and tell a data story that makes an audience care. This workshop aims to address such capability gaps; especially for HR professionals and managers who have some experience with analysis; but are finding some challenges in making an impact in the “last mile” of value in analytics.

This is ONE of FIVE workshops in a comprehensive series on the topic of HR Analytics. Each workshop is modular in nature, addressing different aspects along the analytics value chain.
