In the third of our videos featuring Olly Britnell, Global Head of People Analytics at Philip Morris International, Julian and Olly delve in to the key learnings he has found in his career when it comes to generating business buy in for people analytics, from a change and adoption perspective. What are the tips and tricks he has learned so far? Is there a silver bullet to driving greater adoption? How important is it to have a variety of different channels that are relevant to different stakeholders? Olly talks about the importance of being pragmatic and transparent, championing ambassadors and the key role they play as a network.

Watch the video below for the full discussion from Julian and Olly. This conversation is a follow on from the discussion both had looking at the importance of engaging stakeholders in video two, as well as looking at tech infrastructure in video one.

What can we learn from the HR Analytics Summit?

This latest podcast features Nancy Allen from the People and Workforce Analytics team here at LACE, discussing her recent attendance at the HR Analytics Summit. The conference gathered heads of people analytics and their teams, offering a platform for HR professionals to connect, share insights, and discuss common challenges.    Nancy explains the current trends to emerge from event around HR analytics. This includes a key takeaway around going back to basics, emphasising that even advanced organisations still need to focus on foundational aspects like data quality and governance. This foundation is essential for building credibility and trust in more advanced analytics efforts.    The podcast touched on the ongoing discussion around AI in HR. While AI is a hot topic, many organisations are still in a wait-and-see mode, trying to understand how it will impact their analytics efforts and workforce. Ensuring ethical use of AI and addressing biases remains a critical concern.  Nancy also discussed the human element in HR analytics, pointing out that while advanced analytics and AI can be powerful tools, they should not overshadow the importance of the broader employee experience. HR professionals need to remember that employees spend only a fraction of their time at work, and their experiences outside of work can significantly influence their behaviours and choices.     Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) was another focus of the conference, highlighting the importance of aligning HR analytics with broader business objectives. SWP requires a combination of human and technological elements to create effective workforce plans. Organisations are beginning to recognise the value of integrating SWP more closely with their analytics teams.  Listen now for a discussion showcasing the dynamic nature of HR analytics and the constant need for HR professionals to adapt and innovate in response to changing workforce trends and technologies.  https://soundcloud.com/user-539831783/what-can-we-learn-from-the-hr-analytics-summit
