Enabling Workforce Analytics: what to do once you have your WFA system up and running.

Who is this session for?

- People starting on the workforce analytics journey
- People who are more advanced on the journey, and looking to optimise their WFA team after implementing their solution.

During this session, Peter will share his experiences and learnings over the last 20 years in encouraging organisations to drive real value from their WFA system. This is achieved by undertaking investigations to find insights that the organisation doesn't currently know.

Based on the insights, organisations can develop HR interventions that impact business performance. The danger for many organisations is that a new WFA system is simply the source of an easier way to produce both standard and ad hoc reports, and perhaps a more comprehensive suite of dashboards. While this forms part of the requirement for any WFA, these activities alone do not provide sufficient value.

During the session, Peter will discuss:

1) How to set up a Centre of Excellence around WFA

2) Examples of investigations into finding workforce insights

3) Building professional skills in the interpretation of workforce information

4) Using WFA to drive HR interventions to improve organisational effectiveness

5) Building maturity in WFA over time.

What will you learn?

Participants will learn how and why a technical implementation of a WFA system in itself is not enough. In addition to the technical implementation, they will learn how a separate project track to build capability within the HR community can harness the potential of the WFA solution.
