Smarter Human Capital Planning Seminar
How to Use External Labor Market Data to Make Better Strategic Decisions
20 November, 2013
The Conference Board Conference Center

20 November, 2013
As organizations compete with each other over the same pool of talent, the state of the external labor markets can often be critical to the decisions human capital executives make. Just as supply managers need to know about commodity markets and financial executives need to know about financial markets, human capital professionals need to know about labor markets. There is a growing interest in using analytics within the human capital community, particularly in using external labor market data to better inform human capital decisions.
Building on the success of the first seminar of this type in May 2013, this seminar will look at what types of data are available, how to access it, and what human capital related decisions are closely tied to these data. We will look at the kinds of analysis required to gain meaningful insights. Labor markets experts and human capital practitioners will share their insights with participants.
By participating in this one day seminar, you will learn:
1. How to build or improve on internal capacity to analyze labor market data by:
- Comparing and benchmarking your own company against the backdrop of existing trends in the industry in areas such as compensation and diversity & inclusion.
- Developing an ability to analyze important trends such as skill shortages, compensation, labor turnover, delayed retirement, labor productivity, and unit labor costs.
2. How human capital professionals in similar positions are facing similar challenges.
3. How to find the data you need by getting access to a large list of data sources across many countries.
4. All attendees will receive a primer on labor market topics.
Who should attend
Strategic workforce planning professionals, compensation professionals, HR analytics professionals, general human capital professionals with inclination toward using data.
