Edward Houghton will look at the future of data and analytics in the HR profession and what HR professionals can expect to be doing in the future with their people data. As well as illustrating some of the opportunities and barriers organisations currently face, the session will also introduce key measures and take-away actions that HR professionals can use to improve their analytics practice.
