Welcome to issue #7 of The Digital HR Leader...
All roads lead to London this week as the People Analytics & Future of Work (PAFOW) conference takes place a stone’s throw away from the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday and Thursday.
Instead of obfuscation and deadlock on Brexit, there will be plenty of clarity and insight about the growth, use and benefit of people analytics within organisations.
I’ll be the co-chair of PAFOW and I’m looking forward to reacquainting myself with familiar friends in the community and meeting some new ones. For those that can’t join, some of the sessions will be live streamed so watch out for updates on the PAFOW Facebook page on this.
To coincide with PAFOW, the articles we’ve selected this week all have a people analytics theme. So, have a read of them and let us know what you think.
Come and see me speak in Copenhagen
If you can’t make it to PAFOW then you might want to come to Copenhagen on 21st May for HRtechX - the Nordic region’s largest HRtech conference - at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia. I’ll be kicking things off with the opening keynote on ‘Driving business and employee value with People Analytics’. Please click here and use my code DG25 for a 25% discount on tickets.
I hope you enjoy this week’s edition and if you do, please recommend a colleague subscribes to this newsletter.
Thanks to Catriona Lindsay, Jose Manuel Echeverri, Tyler Orr, Sebastian Kolberg, Ralph Wiechers, Mariana Lozano, Ana Gabriela Robledo, Jamie Booth, Christian Jin Frederiksen and Ketaki Sood who were amongst the kind people who shared the news about the Digital HR Leaders Podcast I’m hosting, and which launches on 14 May. Have a sneak preview here.
I’d also like to offer a big thank you to HRE and the HR Technology Conference team for including me in their inaugural Top 100 HRTech Influencers list, which was announced last week. Whilst I feel lists like these can sometimes be a bit arbitrary and subjective, this one is a pretty solid one and features genuine giants of our industry like Josh Bersin, Adam Grant, Dave Ulrich, Diane Gherson and Laszlo Bock. The list is a real feather in the cap for Insight222 and myHRfuture too as it features three of our team – Jonathan Ferrar and Al Adamsen as well as me. You can check out the full list here.
Until next time!
