People analytics: Breaking myths with agility and passion | Talent Connect 2016

Like the tale of the shoemaker’s son, Nielsen only began to employ workforce analytics in late 2014. After a 3 percent increase in attrition in 2015, we calculated that we could avoid $5M for every point of attrition we reduced. With only a dedicated People Analytics leader, could we figure out why people were leaving and engage leaders to do something about it?

The solution: engage a passionate, diverse group of people and tell a story with your data that people can relate to, all while retaining your most at-risk associates.

The field of analytics, and in particular, People Analytics, is exploding. Who knew that one day HR + Math = Game Changer?? We'll share our journey with you, some lessons we've learned along the way, how to get started if you haven't, and what's next for Nielsen People Analytics.

Key highlights:
Answer a critical business question and estimate financial impact.
Use the data and resources that you have and keep building.
Focus on creating outcomes, not uncovering insights.
