Making smart workforce decisions requires knowing how to make faster, data-driven decisions.

Member companies of The Conference Board have asked for help in analyzing their data as a catalyst to changing their human capital strategy, and thereby enhancing HR’s financial and non-financial contribution to the organization. There is a need for building a Human Capital Analytics framework through the examination of practices at best-in-class companies that are already applying analytics as part of their human capital strategy.

To provide this resource, The Conference Board will convene a Research Working Group on applications in Human Capital Analytics in October 2011.  The group will be guided by Dr. Rebecca Ray, along with Dr. Jac Fitz-Enz and Dr. Patti Philips, who are recognized as founders and legends in this field and will provide participating companies with a refined approach to implementing effective analysis in their firms.

Four specific organizational challenges will serve as the basis for examining the use of Human Capital Analytics in this Research Working Group:

  •     Employee Engagement
  •     Leadership Development
  •     Learning and Development
  •     Diversity and Inclusion

By bringing together executives from approximately 20 corporations, this Research Working Group will produce practical frameworks, templates, and tools for the application of Human Capital Analytics to these four human resources/human capital challenges.  The research results will include case studies of best-in-class organizations that are successfully integrating these applications.

Join this webcast to learn more about the methods and materials involved in this Research Working Group, as well as details of the participation fee and time commitment.

Audience:  This webcast will be of interest to executives responsible for Human Capital strategy, workforce analytics and strategic workforce planning who are exploring participation in the Research Working Group.
