TELLING THE STORY WITH DATA: GAINING SENIOR-LEVEL SUPPORT FOR ANALYTICS AND PLANNING

Speakers: Astik Ranade, Principal, Mercer; Julia Howes, Principal, Mercer

Workforce analytics and planning are essential capabilities to create competitive advantage and drive business results. Value is not created from the data (or the analysis) itself, but from what you do with the insights. Companies have mountains of workforce data on who stays, leaves, advances, performs, and why. Harnessing those data to tell a powerful story is the key to ensuring that action is taken and results are achieved.

Join our experts to hear real-life case examples of "power storytelling," and learn tips on how you can engage leaders in an intentional, focused, and high-energy workforce analytics and planning dialogue.
