Share HR analytics and evidence: how can HR use analytics to make better decisions?

Event Details

In this session we will explore the different types of evidence available for HR professionals when making decisions. By looking more closely at HR analytics as a concept we will uncover some of the challenges and opportunities facing HR professionals when using data in their day-to-day work. WE will also look at what can be done to build better analytics cultures and engage HR functions and their stakeholders in using people data. 

Guest Speaker

Edward Houghton is the CIPD's Senior Research Advisor for Human Capital and Governance. Since joining the institute in 2013 he has been responsible for leading the organisation's human capital research work stream exploring various aspects of human capital management, theory and practice; including the measurement and evaluation of the skills and knowledge of the workforce. He has a particular interest in the role of human capital in driving economic productivity, innovation and corporate social responsibility, and the value of human capital to corporate governance. Recent publications have included “A duty to care? Evidence of the importance of organisational culture to effective governance and leadership” for the Financial Reporting Council’s Culture Coalition, and “A new approach to line manager mental well-being training in banks” an independent evaluation of the Bank Workers Charity and Mind partnership to deliver mental health awareness training in the UK financial services sector.

Before joining the CIPD in 2013 Edward completed a number of research roles in government and higher education. Most recently he was a Knowledge Transfer Associate at the University of Bristol leading an innovative knowledge exchange programme between the university and Barclays bank. Over 3 years he managed research investigating business culture, corporate social responsibility and community investment. In this role he specialised in qualitative and quantitative social research techniques and strategic project design, developing metrics for the organisation's flagship community investment programme in the UK. Prior to this Edward held a number of research analyst roles in regional and local government as well as the private sector, including at the East Midlands Development Agency, Leicester City Council and the Transport Research Laboratory.
