People data for Good

This year's theme, one that'll remain with us ongoing, is People Data for Good. We've selected this based on the need to lead a conversation around how people measurement and analytics are being used to benefit workers of all types, as well as the leaders and organisations they serve. As data generation and use becomes more pervasive, it's now our collective challenge to understand the boundaries and, in turn, choose wisely. With this in mind, this year we'll be coupling the leading practices and ideas shared by many of the world's foremost People Analytics leaders with what we call the People Analytics Technology Expo. Key themes will include:

  • Talent Acquisition and Workforce Planning

  • Employee Engagement, Diversity & Inclusion, and Culture

  • Learning, Performance, Rewards, and Internal Mobility

  • Organisational Network Analysis / Relationship Analytics

  • Data Aggregation, Visualisation, and Distribution

  • Ethics, Privacy, Communication, & Responsible Use

Hope you'll join us, and to makin' great things happen!
