The Data Experiment: Using Science in Human Resources

Creating best practice used to be what HR departments tried to do. Networking and learning what others do was important to bring back and implement in their organization, but times have changed. Instead of trying to do what others do because it added value for another group, you should be thinking differently. Should you be focused on innovation and creativity and use data both internal and external to solve a problem or to enhance what you currently do today? How about using the scientific method?

Learning Objectives

• Assessing human capital and other company data as the basis to solve problems

• Using a proven scientific method to improve programs or solve problems related to companies’ human capital

• Drawing alignment to what insights people data can provide and what is meaningful

• Correlate the data to real world issues and use it to solve problems, implement programs, or design new solutions

• Improve ways to share people data and what it can tell you about an organization or its operations
