CRF Learning: Impact Through People Analytics

  • December 9 - 10 2024

This programme is taking place online. The cost of the programme is £1,650 (+VAT) for CRF members and £3,300 (+VAT) for non-members.

HR is under increasing pressure to demonstrate business impact. Taking an analytical approach and using evidence, rather than relying on gut instinct alone, is a massive opportunity. Using HR data can help build the credibility of the function and improve the quality of decision making, enable employees to be more engaged, and optimise the impact of business and people-based processes. And, while AI is not changing people analytics yet, it is a factor we should consider.

Data-driven HR focuses the function on adding value and driving improved performance across the organisation on an ongoing basis. It’s about thinking like a proactive profit centre rather than focusing on being a reactive cost centre.

Based on Dave Millner’s experience and CRF’s ongoing research into people analytics, this programme aims to take a commercial, HR-centric view of data and analytics, assisting HR practitioners in how to leverage data to deliver tangible business impact. It is not about turning HR people into data scientists but about giving participants the confidence to work with data, not just to drive better reporting, but to provide more persuasive analysis that ensures HR is making a real impact on business performance.

The cost of the programme is £1,650 (+VAT) for CRF members and £3,300 (+VAT) for non-members.
