The Analytics Revolution: How Data and Insights are Transforming HR


​All around us we see examples of how "big data" is transforming how we live our lives.  It also has a profound impact on how work gets done and what's expected of the CHRO.  In this interactive discussion, we'll talk about the emerging trends in analytics and how to build this capability within your people organizations.  We'll hear from Andy Porter, Chief People Officer at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard on innovative approaches his team has taken to integrate data and analytics into the day to day workings of HR.

Thank you, the Broad Institute for hosting an executive roundtable.
