close Workforce Analytics – What’s That and What Are We Building?

Acosta - VP - HR Operations and Services

The presentation discusses the increased need for Workforce Analytics not only for operational effectiveness but also to drive margins and competitive advantage with the use of advanced predictive modelling that has gained traction in the recent past. The area is vast and evolving and so does not have a distinctive methodology like the traditional ERPs. Most companies are struggling in choosing the right technology and securing the funds to implement solutions that notionally would give magical actionable insights. Such approach may solve some issues, but very likely will lose its sustained value overtime in providing comprehensive business decision making ability. The key to success is to build contextual algorithmic based data science capabilities employing a suit of competencies, technologies and business processes. Most CHROs and CEOs have been open to such thoughts but in the absence of a working model, their support to this initiative has been limited. Some light will be shown to gain support and appropriate sponsorship so as be able to march forward into this remarkable new journey.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:
  • Operational Analytics v/s Predictive Modeling
  • Data Science
  • Where Does It Fit In
  • Key Challenges
  • Solution Possibilities

close Beyond the Financials: Mining your Internal Data to Make Better Decisions

Eyemart Express, LLC - Chief Financial Officer

Top Finance organizations now support a wide range of critical decision making, beyond budgeting and forecasting. The best Finance functions are providing true business analysis, supporting such decisions as pricing, promotions, media mix, and site selection.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Develop your internal team capabilities, but don’t be afraid to leverage outside subject matter experts
  • We’re not all statisticians or database gurus.
  • Look for areas that are ripe for more structured, analytical decision making, and work for small wins before trying to completely overhaul the decision making process.
  • You will probably find that your organization is hungry for this kind of support, and your business partners will start beating a path to your door.
