There are many challenges associated with implementing analytics. We know because we work with those very same challenges. But we also know there is great value in learning from people in the field that are actually creating value from their workforce analytics efforts.

This event is a unique opportunity to meet fellow practitioners that are getting started or those who have already achieved success in analytics. Bring your team for an analytics retreat that will elevate your impact.

The Forum also features a unique event – the Data Heroes Analyst Challenge. Watch as analysts from multiple companies battle it out in real-time to create compelling dashboards and storylines using a workforce dataset. You’ll have the opportunity to comment on the results and vote on the winner.

Join IHRIM, ASUG and HR tech industry leaders on September 20-21, 2016, to explore real-world case studies in workforce analytics. You will have lots of opportunities for networking with your peers to learn from their challenges and successes to see where innovation is happening. In addition, you will learn from practitioners in the field at the educational sessions as opposed to hearing sales pitches from vendor-driven presentations.
