Wednesday, January 14, 2015:"Workforce Analytics:  Create a Game-Changing Performance Culture"


This program has been pre-approved for 1.25 Business (Strategic) HRCI recertification credits.



TOPIC: "Workforce Analytics:  Create a Game-Changing Performance Culture"


Analytics and measurement are basic expectations in all aspects of business today, and we can apply analytics to human behavior too.  In this session, we will examine how behavioral assessment tools can evaluate what are often difficult-to-assess aspects of human behavior and apply the resulting objective information to assist and guide in the hiring process and managing people. Analytics enable the HR professional to understand the behavioral makeup of your organization, helping to inform your decisions around talent acquisition, talent development, succession planning, team dynamics and more. Given the talent shortage and the cost of attrition, smart HR professionals are increasingly requiring – and valuing - this kind of data more and more.

Using actual case studies to demonstrate the points, we will explore how predictive data can help leaders manage employees to keep them engaged and performing to their capacity, as well as improve communication and team effectiveness.  This enables them to create a game-changing performance culture.


Learning objectives:


1.)    Attendees will learn how behavioral data about candidates will inform best

        choices for candidate selection and effective onboarding.


2.)    Attendees will apply behavioral data in a sample coaching scenario, gaining

        practice in the real application of informed coaching.


3.)   Attendees will consider the behavioral characteristics required in a particular

       job, giving them important elements they will want to include in future job



4.)   Putting the above elements together, attendees will identify the potential

        impact predictive data can have on their organization’s culture.
