Employing Analytics to Raise Employee Productivity in Asia-Pacific

Raising employee productivity is one of the key levers that organizations can use to improve their competitiveness. Through the use of workforce analytics, organizations can measure the impact of productivity initiatives and deliver the gains that can make a difference.

Against this backdrop, The Workforce Analytics Institute convened senior HR leaders at executive briefings in Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai in February 2017, to explore and discuss findings from the new report Employing Analytics to Enhance Workplace Productivity, and to take a close look at the key approaches and strategies that organizations can use to enhance productivity.

At these sessions our experts Nicholas Sutcliffe and Dr. Caitlin Pan from The Conference Board, with Siddharth Mehta and Jackson Kam from Mercer, shared key learning points around the need for organizations to develop leadership to drive productivity, enhance employee engagement, and leverage technology to raise productivity.
