Programme Overview
As global workforce demographic trends shift tectonically and as the war for talent intensifies, the need for HR to reimagine itself and provide a competitive advantage to Organizations is being felt like never before. The questions that arise are: How do HR Functions and teams deliver such sustainable competitive advantages to Organizations? How do HR practitioners and teams leverage this data explosion to cull out compelling insights that enable sharper decision-making triggering higher shareholder value? How do HR practitioners build the capability to collect, interpret and analyze relevant data for delivering critical insights to their business stakeholders towards enabling robust and agile decision making. How will HR build a compelling case for directly impacting organizational outcomes in a digital and VUCA age? The answer lies in adopting “People Analytics” that involves a leveraging & analysis of data patterns to cull out deep insights resulting in data-driven decision making.

HR needs to be re-imagined and as part of this re-imagination, new cutting – edge competencies, tools, analytics & visualization technologies, predictive modelling, data science; hitherto never part of traditional HR lexicon; need to be deployed to interpret the gigabytes of data being generated, to throw up patterns and predict behaviour, trends and events thereby enabling proactive management action and faster, more agile & optimized real time decision making. This transformation would require a completely new “tool-box of competencies” that would equip HR professionals & teams with the perspective & ammunition required to enable them to more directly impact talent & business outcomes & develop a share of voice in the boardroom. These new set of Competencies could either redefine the role of the “HR Business Partner” or create an entirely new role in the form of the “HR Analyst/Data Scientist”.
