Organizations investing in HR analytics to drive decision-making are investing in their most important asset, people. They are maximizing HR's contribution to the organization's bottom line and gaining a competitive advantage over those who do not take the plunge. But they are the select few. Other organizations would like to derive the benefits of HR analytics but don't know where to start or continue their efforts.

INFONEX's HR Analytics 2019 has been designed to provide delegates with all the information they need to understand why the investment of time and money is worthwhile, what's involved in set up and implementation and take initial steps to implement or progress to the next level.

You will learn what is driving HR analytics today, how to get the most from the data you already have, how to build an effective HR Analytics team and the importance of your team to be able to visually communicate important insights. Case studies will demonstrate the role HR analytics can play in hiring, employee engagement, retention and succession planning.

Join us in Toronto to get caught up on the latest developments in analytics and learn skills and strategies for improving your workforce and realizing its full potential. Register today!
