HR & Workforce Analytics Innovation (London Data Festival)

As I've posted previously, adoption of analytics in HR has been relatively slow in comparison to other departments. However, this is changing as HR departments begin to leverage the wealth of data they have about their employees to improve employee retention, morale, and recruitment.

Well next Tuesday and Wednesday, 10th and 11th May, I'm in London for possibly the biggest UK based event on data and analytics in business and HR that we've seen to date.

I'll be focusing on the HR and Workforce Analytics Innovation Summit but also attending the three other events taking place within Innovation Enterprise's London Data Festival.

I may change my mind but I'm currently planning to attend, and may therefore be blogging on the following sessions from the HR and Workforce Analytics Innovation Summit:
