The 2-day seminar is designed to help attendees understand why HR must support recommendations on workforce management strategies and programs to decision-makers with relevant and compelling evidence. Although professional expertise and judgment are valuable in developing strategies and programs the use of quantitative evidence is increasingly used to complement judgment.
The emergence of data analytics, artificial intelligence and other tools for making better decisions has been acknowledged by marketing, finance, operations and other functions. HR needs to increase the use of scientific methods to discover what impacts the outcomes that result when adopting specific strategies and programs. HR practitioners must understand quantitative methods and how they can be applied to forecast what impact decisions will have on the effectiveness of the workforce.
