Bernard Marr – author, Top 5 LinkedIn Influencer, advisor to the World Economic Forum, and keynote speaker at People Analytics World 2018 – joins the People Analytics Podcast, a series of lively conversations with leading practitioners, thought leaders and tech pioneers from a variety of backgrounds from around the globe.
Bernard Marr will be launching his latest book “Data-Driven HR” at the People Analytics World conference on 11-12 April. As part of his research, as well as his consulting work, he has been exploring areas such as Blockchain, Machine Learning and AI, and Organisational Network Analysis in a practical sense of how they are applied in real organisations.
The insights that these concepts and tools make possible can transform the operational capacity of HR – along with all other functions that embrace them – to a level that is more reactive, predictive, and intelligent in its actions.
He talks with David Green about the way in which HR Analytics is changing the way the rest of business sees HR, and how the massive potential of this new technology is demanding a transformation in the mindset and operational structures of the People function of organisations both large and small.
In this week’s episode, they discuss:
- How things are not as bad for HR as some would have us believe
- The new tools that are now available
- What is holding the function back in the face of these opportunities
- Bernard’s framework of organisational intelligence
- What HR can learn from other functions, as well as Sports Analytics
- How HR can take the next step from Intelligent to Super-Intelligent
- The importance of storytelling for making sense of – and communicating the value of – the new insights that are being generated
- Issues of privacy, transparency and ownership
- What people can expect from his keynote at People Analytics World 2018.
