One Day

We know this is a tricky topic and one where it’s hard to know where to start. So if you really are looking for a refreshing, easy way to break the ice – this is it. All we ask is that you are willing to learn and not frightened of making some mistakes.

Invest a day of your time and £199 plus VAT and booking fee and if you’ve learned nothing by the close of the workshop we’ll give you your money back. Places are limited to 10.

Workshop summary

HR has a proliferation of data from numerous sources, using this data to offer information to the business to support people interventions is where we aim to help you.

We contend HR is not short of data, but rather the skills and experience to know which is more valuable than the other and to use that data intelligently to influence business decisions and outcomes.

Our programme shows how we can begin to address that. We will help you understand the real basics and take you through the four steps to creating credible and reliable insights based on data.

  • What question am I answering – what do I need to measure (need)
  • How best to measure it – survey, existing data sets or outputs from HR systems (source)
  • How best to use what I have measured (modeling)
  • How best to present the findings (data visualisation)

There will be a mixture of theory (not much) , business application and some practice. We will even try to answer some of your real and current HR data challenges.
