HRBPs are the engine of people analytics: case studies
David Creelman
People analytics has the most impact when it is addressing a pressing business issue of moderate size (i.e., not a moon-shot). The best person to drive this work in the HRBP who is facing this issue and motivated to solve it. In this session I'll share several case studies of how small teams of HRBPs have led successful analytics projects with some support from the people analytics team.

What are the measures of a healthy organization? Let's talk about planets, animals, metrics & mental health!
Matej Sakoman and Fran Mikulicic
If you had to choose, just one question, which you would like to ask your employees every week of the year - which question would you choose and why❓

It is no wonder when someone occasionally gets the question "do you still love me❓" or "how do I look❓" because some questions need to be asked over and over again❗️ Now lets get back to your million dolar $ question.

If your question were asked in such a way that employees answered on a scale of 1 to 5, what useful information could you extract from the answer❓ Perhaps you can see, from week to week % of employees who are very much in love ❤️ and engaged as well those who have fallen into a crisis and may be attracted to other opportunities. Maybe we need to improve some things and do it fast❗️ Maybe it is time for big changes in our organization and hard decisions. And What if we have 10 things in the category important❓ How can we know which of these is the most important? where to shovel first❓

If you are wondering what planets and animals have to do with this topic you will have to wait and see for yourself…

Considering Artificial Intelligence beyond technology, we go through
  • why AOI matters and how to link it to the purpose and business strategy

Workforce Planning in the age of The Great Resignation
Jeff Higgins
CEOs and organizations frequently state "Our people are our most valuable asset", and yet according to the US BLS more than 4.3 million people left their job in December 2021 and there were 10.9 million open jobs in the US. Increasingly organizations of all sizes cannot find, attract and hire enough talent to meet customer demand, while at the same time employees are leaving organizations at never-before-seen rates. What can organizations do to mitigate these painful dual challenges amid a global pandemic and supply chain disruptions? This session will show how workforce planning can illuminate and quantify the scope of the challenge and how small workforce changes can yield big impacts down the road. This session will show various workforce strategies, both good and bad that can impact the workforce and be the path out of today's Great Resignation.

  • The Who, What, Where, When, and Why of workforce planning, why now?
  • Using Workforce Planning to create short term and long-term value for the business
  • How to quantify the right size and cost of workforce that the business can afford
  • Show how people link to bottom line impact
4:00–4:45 pm

The Great Migration: How to Retain Engineers and Developers in the Age of Global Hunting?
David Yang
We live in an unprecedented time. 32 million people quit and changed jobs from April to November 2021 in the USA. On a global scale, this figure is several times higher. Leading analysts have called this phenomenon the "Great Resignation".

We see how people are actively moving from one organization to another as it is much easier to give up an unloved job in favor of something new. After all, now - during the period of remote work - a qualified specialist can change a job as easily as an email adress!

Companies no longer hire employees. Today employees "hire the company." They choose from among the organizations that best meet their ideas about their ideal place of work.

How can a modern organization deal with this situation? How to maintain a corporate culture and retain key employees? Can modern technology help retain employees? Yva.ai CEO David Yang, the founder of 12 successful companies, will answer these questions.

Predictive Attrition Using Survival Analysis
Nick Jesteadt
Attrition metrics can often under or oversell the sentiment of your employees. They are impacted by external labor market factors and are not consistently predictive: 10% turnover for the last 2 years does not predict 10% turnover in the upcoming year for example. Survival analysis gives an alternative and complementary view to attrition. Borrowed from epidemiology, this analysis looks at the likelihood of churn as an employee reaches tenure milestones with the company. It shows when your teams are at-risk and leads to a much more meaningful intervention or informed succession strategy. It's also adaptive: with new data being fed, this ML based approach can adjust expectations based on timely departures and can be modeled for different labor-market scenarios. We have used this approach at TIBCO to increase our annual turnover forecast accuracy from ~60% to ~80% and it allows us to see hotbeds of attrition before the trend emerges. In this brief presentation, I'll introduce the concept of survival analysis, demonstrate it with a sample dashboard, discuss its applications among trends such as the Great Resignation and then be available for questions.

Democratising HR Analytics - How MLOPs Changes the People Analytics game
Jonu Rana
To be truly useful, analytics must be integrated into user workflows. A modest but growing number of business and HR leaders are exploring ways to harness real-time analytics throughout the hire to retire employee lifecycles. Real time analytics is a game changer and emerged as a disruptive force in the world of HR.

Applying MLOPS moves HR towards real-time analytics, increases the quality, simplifies the management process, and automates the deployment of Machine Learning and Deep Learning models in HR data production environments thereby rendering higher dimensionality in turn driving proactiveness.

It can quickly change the landscape of the HR industry especially in the way that it democratises data.

People Analytics - A way to do HR?
Lyndon Sundmark
You might recognize the above as a question that is an answer in disguise. If so -great.

One of the dangers in most emerging disciplines is the risk that it is either considered a fad or is at risk of becoming one. A lot of this comes down to how we define and operationalize things.

In People Analytics we need to define it and operationalize it in ways that mitigate against that as much as possible.

Explore this further in this presentation.

Intelligent talent selection based on data-rich profile matching
Catharine Fennell
First stage resume screening is loaded with missed opportunities. Candidates are prematurely being screened out based on inaccurate resume screening and name bias. Candidates are frustrated and great potential is lost in application screening.

So what is the answer? With a shift to competency-based screening employers are looking at competency and fit first. This requires a shift in how candidates apply and the data they share. With data-rich screening at the first stage, employers can reduce bias, mitigate risk, increase decision making defensibility and standardize their measurement. Learn how employers are combining three interview stages into one with intelligent candidate matching.

What if you could make the right people decisions almost all the time?
Jay Huang
People are complex. How a person enjoys, thrives and grows in a role in the organization is driven by multiple factors such as their competencies, experience, personality, interests and values. With the right data and predictive AI, it is possible today to truly understand each candidate and employee, and personalize HR at scale.

Find out how we helped companies like Nestlé, Heineken, Baxter and KPMG achieve:
  • 90% accuracy predicting performance, high potential, job fit and org culture fit;
  • 85% satisfaction from thousands of users;
  • 80% Adverse Impact Ratios to improve Diversity, Equity and Inclusion;
  • Up to 70% savings in time and effort.

Presentation Topic:
Why understanding organizational culture is a superpower and competitive advantage

More about presentation:
Date-Driven is not enough. Even a perfectly researched and 'evidence based' decision may feel wrong. A candidate may get everything she asked for, but still have doubts about joining the company. The credentials of the new executive are impressive, but he is not a fit for the future strategy. Many internal conflicts in the organization linger without apparent reason. Why is that happening? A company is really run by values and principles of the employees and management. A precise understanding of shared values is a superpower for productivity. With our solutions, we are able to better align teams and organizations, and give them a competitive advantage by helping them work together productively sooner.

Eszter Debreczeni
About speaker:
HIGH TECH & HIGH HUMAN – this is how a FUTUREPROOF organization sounds as its bests.
The "MUSIC" that keeps me in the grove is about:

I stand for:
CONNECTING PEOPLE with other people, opportunities and ideas
DISCOVERING the possibilities harmonizing humans and machines
ORCHESTRATING meaningful, sustainable, and joyful changes
CONTRIBUTING to having better leaders, better organizations, and a better world.

The new instrument that I am currently exploring is AI – the AUGMENTED (and not artificial) INTELLIGENCE. I see tremendous opportunities to play it thoughtfully, responsibly and for the benefit of augmenting our organizational intelligence.

In esthra – HR Orchestration:

HR
stands for focusing on the Human Resources and Reinventions in organizations. I have 20 years of HR Leadership experience in multinational organizations.
My HOW and WHAT is based on 20 years of corporate HR leadership in international organizations, a decade of technology sector experience from Microsoft and a lifelong passion for impacting lives through human connections.

Orchestration
relates to an almost singer and a firm believer in the transformational power of music. As much as I see the benefits of technology, I stand for being more UNPLUGGED at the workplace. It means going "creative offline"
connect human to human and share my personal cover version even in business-related matters.

@esthra: WE TUNE WITH PURPOSE. WE PLAY WITH PASSION.

Let's CHANGE THE MUSIC together.

Workforce Planning in the age of The Great Resignation

More about presentation:
CEOs and organizations frequently state "Our people are our most valuable asset", and yet according to the US BLS more than 4.3 million people left their job in December 2021 and there were 10.9 million open jobs in the US.

What can organizations do to mitigate these painful dual challenges amid a global pandemic and supply chain disruptions? This session will show how workforce planning can illuminate and quantify the scope of the challenge and how small workforce changes can yield big impacts down the road. This session will show various workforce strategies, both good and bad that can impact the workforce and be the path out of today's Great Resignation.

  • The Who, What, Where, When, and Why of workforce planning, why now?
  • Using Workforce Planning to create short term and long-term value for the business
  • How to quantify the right size and cost of workforce that the business can afford

People Analytics - A way to do HR?

More about presentation:
You might recognize the above as a question that is an answer in disguise. If so -great.

One of the dangers in most emerging disciplines is the risk that it is either considered a fad or is at risk of becoming one. A lot of this comes down to how we define and operationalize things.

In People Analytics we need to define it and operationalize it in ways that mitigate against that as much as possible.

What are the measures of a healthy organization❓Let's talk about planets, animals, metrics & mental health❗️

More about presentation:
If you had to choose, just one question, which you would like to ask your employees every week of the year - which question would you choose and why❓

It is no wonder when someone occasionally gets the question "do you still love me❓" or "how do I look❓" because some questions need to be asked over and over again❗️ Now lets get back to your million dolar $ question.

If your question were asked in such a way that employees answered on a scale of 1 to 5, what useful information could you extract from the answer❓ Perhaps you can see, from week to week % of employees who are very much in love ❤️ and engaged as well those who have fallen into a crisis and may be attracted to other opportunities. Maybe we need to improve some things and do it fast❗️ Maybe it is time for big changes in our organization and hard decisions. And What if we have 10 things in the category important❓ How can we know which of these is the most important? where to shovel first❓

If you are wondering what planets and animals have to do with this topic you will have to wait and see for yourself…
