This interactive workshop will provide practical steps to improve your organizations capability to leverage big data, people analytics, and workforce planning.  Attendees will:

  • Understand the key trends in the workplace/HR that make HR Analytics even more critical 
  • Be able to clearly articulate the value to your business of HR Analytics capability
  • Understand where your company sits on the HR Analytics maturity model
  • Hear about HR Analytics best practices, learnings from top company case studies
  • Know the steps required to develop capability, and resources available to you to take action


An ever-growing number of variables influence the future workplace.  One of these variables will undoubtedly have a disproportionate impact on your organization’s ability to succeed -- the measures attributed to your people, teams, and overall organizations.  As with an automated speed limit sign -- which provides traffic speeds in real-time and, in turn, affects immediate behavior -- so too will talent measures be more timely, relevant, and visible.  This will affect behavior, everything from employee engagement to team productivity and innovation to organizational culture.


Thoughtfully created measures will help focus your employees on priority activities, appropriate behaviors, and desired outcomes.  The irony here is that data entry, which continues to serve as the basis for many HR measures or metrics today, will likely not change very much.  In fact, it might even decrease.  For example, the idea that the best sources of insight will come through annual employee surveys, performance appraisals, and learning systems is falling out of favor.  Instead, what's emerging is analyzing organic activity -- what people actually do.  Potentially, this is both scary and immensely powerful.  

This discussion, led by Al Adamsen of the Talent Strategy Institute, will explore the potential for this work citing leading practices, emerging innovations, and prominent technologies.  We will address the concepts of big data, people analytics, and workforce planning, and put them into a simple, meaningful context.  We will touch on everything from LinkedIn profiles to personal assessments to data residing within an organization's HR technologies.


We will also discuss the uniquely valuable insights coming from talent market analytics -- generating insights into what's happening in national and global talent markets.  In the end, the goal of this session will be to educate, inspire, and clarify: educate on what's happening and what will likely happen; inspire that you and your organization can, in fact, take advantage of the coming changes; and, finally, clarify a few approaches to advance the value your organization realizes from talent measures and analytics.  


Al Adamsen is the Founder & Executive Director of the Talent Strategy Institute.  He's one of the few who's led a workforce planning & analytics function within a Fortune 500 company (Gap Inc.), served as a leader with an analytics vendor (Infohrm, now SuccessFactors), and has also served as a consultant and advisor with Ernst & Young, Kenexa, and now TSI.  Over his career Al has served such organizations as Gap Inc., Starbucks, Disney, T-Mobile, Boeing, Heinz, Mayo Clinic, Stanford University, among many others.  Al also co-chairs the Leadership Development Council, Workforce Planning Council, Workforce Analytics Council, Talent Management Council, and Culture & Change Council.  Al's educational background is in behavioral economics as well as individual, team, and organizational development.   Finally, Al is a long-standing coach and advisor with the Positive Coaching Alliance, as well as the honored father of two outstanding young people.  Al lives in Santa Cruz, California.
