Workshop C
2:00 PM How to Optimise Your Employee Experience by Leveraging HR Analytics

Gustavo Canton , Senior Director of Research and Social Media, Global People Analytics Walmart (US)

Traditionally, a specific area or team in an organization is tasked to provide the incentives to attract and retain talent. There are many methodologies to come up with incentive packages for employees but as HR evolves we need to look beyond a specific organisational function in order to achieve the intended goal. 

Many companies have realised that it requires a partnership with other key areas of the business such as operations, process improvement, etc. In fact, HR analytics should play a leadership role by coordinating the cross-functional work stream and providing the analytics support. 

This workshop will allow the participants to learn (at a high level) the necessary steps for designing a robust methodology to optimise the employee experience in your organisation.

Learning outcomes
  • How to identify the key stakeholders
  • What are the steps to optimise the employee experience process
  • The pros of leveraging an associate panel
  • Potential risk of not acting on employee feedback
