Welcome to issue #20 of The Digital HR Leader...

As I explained in a recent interview for People Matters, firms are increasingly leveraging people analytics to drive outcomes for employees as well as the business. This is not just for altruistic reasons either as there is increasing evidence that using people analytics to drive improvements for the workforce can directly impact the bottom line.

A stark example of this was provided by Leena Nair during our Fireside Chat at the CogX Festival of AI a few weeks ago. Leena highlighted how the HR team at 
Unilever has quantified that for every $1 invested in health and wellbeing initiatives, they get a return of $2.50.
In this week’s episode of the Digital HR Leaders Podcast, Jordan Pettman provides another powerful example of how people analytics can provide clear benefit for employees with the
analysis his team undertook on the gender pay gap at Nestlé. I highly recommend readers take time to listen to my conversation with Jordan.
