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.
Thank You
I hope you enjoy this week’s edition and if you do, please recommend a colleague

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!

In this article I summarise my reflections after attending the Wharton People Analytics Conference in Philadelphia, which featured the likes of Richard Thaler, Allyson Felix, Marcus Buckingham and Deloitte's CEO Cathy Engelbert along with the Wharton team of Adam Grant, Cade Massey and Laura Zarrow. The topics covered in Philadelphia were diverse with three themes coming to the fore: Diversity and Inclusion, Organisational Network Analysis and Nudges.

Content we're loving, this week...
Since leaving Google where he was the driving force behind the fabled people analytics team, Laszlo Bock has been building up his new venture Humu, which burst out of stealth mode in 2018. In this interview, Bock describes how behavioural science, combined with an understanding of human feeling and careful attention to privacy, can help organisations run better.
This article documents the findings of a fascinating study by Bock’s former charges at Google designed to understand the impact of distributed work on areas such as well-being, performance and connectedness, before providing some recommendations to keep those things consistent.

There’s certainly not a shortage of ideas when it comes to people analytics, but as Dave Ulrich highlights in his excellent article, it can all be a bit overwhelming at times. Instead, in order to ensure analytics provides sustainable impact, Ulrich advocates organising these ideas into three relatively simple questions: How? (“analytics that matter and that improves decision making”), What? (“analytics that link to business outcomes”), and How? “making analytics actionable”).
