Have you heard of a data scientist? What about a data wrangler, a machine learning specialist, a data engineer, or an analytics translator? As analytics becomes a strategic priority for most organizations, it is a game changer for HR departments. These positions require new skillsets and knowledge across the organization. This means a shift in the workforce, including new roles and learning paths.

Are you ready to support your organization in this new area of analytics? At this event you will learn how analytics is impacting every industry and function, the impacts this new area has on the existing organization, and what HR can do to lead the transformation in the organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the growth of analytics roles in organizations (past, current, and future)
  • Learn about the impact analytics is having on organizations
  • Identify how HR can support the transformation
