People Analytics Career Discovery Lab

Accelerate your People Analytics career and business outcomes.

About this Lab

Accelerate your people analytics skills and drive business outcomes by joining this four-week live acceleration lab. Each week is designed to simultaneously accelerate you and your career while providing easy to implement people analytics approaches to bring immediate value to your organization.

Join a group of peers for live sessions focused on skills and career acceleration. This lab is for anyone seeking to differentiate themselves and their work by leveraging people analytics skills.

You will identify your own personal people analytics strengths, build a career and development plan, and have an opportunity for peer coaching. Each week you will also receive industry expert designed processes guiding you on how to: build a business case using analytics, use analytics to measure progress, change, & ROI,

design a people analytics plan of action, proactively identify issues using people analytics, and address current challenges with people data.

This is not your typical people analytics course focused solely on learning new terms and concepts. This is an interactive lab focused on your skills, your career, and your ability to deliver results for your organization.

This Lab is designed for

  1. those early in their use of people analytics (whether new to working in general or seasoned professionals who are just new to people analytics),
  2. those in HR or a people leader roles who want to incorporate more analytics into their work and skillset (e.g., recruiting, learning, HR managers, etc),
  3. those currently using people analytics, who are unsure which career path or skills might suit them best to focus on. 

Benefits of attending include:

  • Identifying the unknown or under-utilized people analytics skills and strengths you already have to make more of an impact today.
  • Drive results by getting templates and guides to making an impact in your
    organization with people analytics no matter what your role or starting point.
  • Get ahead by focusing on your skills, your career and your ability to show impact
