• VIDEO: #PeopleAnalyticsMonth Sofia MeetUp 4

    HR & People Analytics chapter in Sofia, Bulgaria is happy to share the video recording from the PeopleAnalyticsMonth initiative by Nigel.

    The topic of our presentation, demo and Q&A was People analytics - smarter, strategic and informed talent decisions.

    For more details you can review the attached slide deck and learn more about the journey of the local community and our next event planned again online on April 8h, 2020

  • March 2020: #PeopleAnalyticsMonth


    Around the world meetups of HR and people analytics communities are forming. Led by independent community leaders from their local area, these grassroots communities meet to share industry experiences, stories and enthusiasm - as well as usually a drink and some food. The diversity of experience and knowledge in the room is often vast, ranging from industry veterans to newcomers, from technologists to HR generalists. Everyone is welcome.

    Since August, we have been signposting people towards these communities through our Global HR and People Analytics Meetup Map, and our Global Meetup Calendar. Now in March 2020, on behalf of the meetup organisers around the world, we invite you to find and celebrate these local people analytics communities as part of #PeopleAnalyticsMonth.
