January 2019 - London HR and People Analytics Meetup featuring Mckinsey, GSK and more
To register for the next London HR and People Analytics on 16 January 2019, please
Throughout 2018, the London HR and People Analytics meetup group has really taken off. We've hosted dozens of HR and non-HR data speakers, sharing practical and real data stories, growing a grassroots community dedicated not only to improving evidence-based/data-driven people decision-making, but bringing in the techniques and evidence used in other data industries.
I'm delighted to announce that we're going to kick off 2019 with the same rhythm. On the 16 January, we will start the 2019 event series with
talking us through his experience of
doing network analyses
. Those of you who follow Keith will know he is not only an experienced HR analytics thought leader, but an incredibly practical and technical practitioner, and we look forward to him talking the stage.
We also welcome
, People Analyst at GSK
to the stage. Andrea is a familiar face at the meetups, and he will be taking us through how GSK are
carrying out survivor analyses
Following on from our belief that the people analytics industry shouldn't grow in silo, we are excited that
will also be taking the stage. Stylianos is a highly experienced data scientist, who will be talking us through some
data science examples from the sports and branding data industries
. We look forward to a thought-provoking talk that might spark new ideas in our HR and People analytics sphere.
Finally, for those interested in
the HR Analytics ThinkTank research
, I will be making a few brief announcements, including announcing new university partners and researchers, and the topics we will be covering throughout 2019, in case anyone would like to contribute.
