About HR & PEOPLE ANALYTICS Forum

This Forum is organized by HR Professionals for HR Professionals
Technology is changing the world of work and big data plays a key role in the process. Sorting out the “ocean of information” is the game-changer. HR analytics are not yet-another-hype, but a trend that is growing and is here to stay. It is increasingly becoming the “way we do things around here”. If you don’t have the right data – you are uninformed. If you have too much of unsorted data – you are overwhelmed. As a busy HR person, you can’t afford either. The quality of your decisions has a direct and lasting impact on your organization. The HR analytics provide a solution to that challenge.

HR & PEOPLE ANALYTICS FORUM ZAGREB is a double-stream conference dedicated to presenting, understanding and embracing the use of data-driven analytical approach in HR function, and business as a whole. The data-driven decision-making process is recognized as the key differentiator in today’s workplace, giving companies who apply it properly a substantial edge.

London, Paris, Berlin, Madrid are regularly hosting world-class HR analytics conferences ever more often. We wanted to bring some of that world to you, to Zagreb. The HR & PEOPLE ANALYTICS FORUM ZAGREB is the first HR analytics conference in Croatia and (to our best knowledge) in the region.

    Overview
    Upcoming EU data protection regulation aims to finally put in order massive misuse of personal data. What it brings is putting people in control over their personal data. To achieve it, European parliament and the Council of the European Union created GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which caused huge interest on a global scale. “Jurisdiction” has been extended outside EU borders. It comes with number of straightforward requirements such as “right to be forgotten” and several concrete requirements aimed to ensure adequate level of personal data quality and security. All organizations having EU citizens’ personal data must comply, no matter where they are located. Bigger than ever enforcement power is enabled through ability to impose penalties up to 20 million euros or 4% of the global revenue, whichever is bigger! Huge penalties provide high level of confidence that, for the first time, EU privacy regulation will be taken seriously. This presentation will propose the best approach the HR managers should take in supporting GDPR implementation projects and collaborating with other key stakeholders in their organization to enable adequate fulfillment of compliance requirements.

    Overview
    The presentation will assist HR professionals and generalists who may have analytical capabilities of varying quality in their businesses to kick off and use WF planning as a powerful tool in supporting business to achieve its strategy. Supported with examples from real businesses, we will show how good WF planning is as much about qualitative as it is about quantitative data, i.e. about understanding what the numbers and analytics are telling us and shaping our activities based on those discussions. Also, the presentation will talk about what kind of data are fed into WF planning to kick off the process. The benefits of the WF planning are clearly defined action plans for HR and the business in the area of sourcing, talent management, org design, learning and development and employee engagement. A beneficial WF planning side-effect is a very collaborative and focused strategic business planning discussion that positions HR to the right seat at the table.

    Key take-aways:
    1. WF planning is one of the key HR tools to identify future capabilities' needs in businesses
    2. Very useful in directing strategic planning discussions from quantitative to also qualitative aspects (from headcount and cost to capabilities)

    · The structure and the process of organizational audit

    Overview
    There are two key questions for every HR professional. The first is how much of a role of a strategic partner you currently hold and how much leadership you provide in strategy execution and business development through human and organizational development activities. The second is how satisfied you are, professionally and personally, with the current state of affairs. The hypothesis of this presentation is that by raising their expertise in the field of organization design, HR professionals will magnify their influence in their organizations and increase their impact in strategy formulation and execution, and, consequently, improve the organizations’ bottom line. Organizational audit is an integral part of the organizational design and is used to analyze alignment between three levels of planning and decision-making: strategic, tactical and operational with three levels of organizations: organizational, process and human. Organizational audit will equip HR professionals with more profound understanding of the dynamic complexity of their organizations, help them identify causes of business issues and consequences of potential actions, as well as train them to apply systems thinking and judgment realizing organizations’ links and loops.

    Key take-aways:
    1. Organizational audit – Powering the HR role through Organization design
    2. HR, in addition to top management, is the only function with competences and incentives to monitor the whole system

    Workshop Leader Fran Mikulicic, PhD, MBA · Founder & CEO of Progressio · Organization Design Thought Leader · Corporate Consigliere

  • WORKSHOP OPENING: OVERVIEW OF DAILY AGENDA
    09:00 - 09:15 Conference Hall Beethoven 2

    Workshop Focus:
    · To illustrate the new possibilities for HR Professionals
    · To demonstrate the importance of organization design
    · To explain the components of organization design and their interaction
    · To instruct how to conduct an organizational audit
    · To teach how to think like an organizational designer

    Workshop Overview:
    Not more than 300 words description / “tell a little story“ about what they will be experiencing "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." In any given organization there is never only one tree and never only one axe. In any given organization there is always a goal to chop down more trees than competitors do. And to do it faster. Work smarter and work harder, not necessarily in that order, becomes an everyday motto. Since a chain is as strong as its weakest link, most of the answers are to be found in comprehension of a whole system. That’s a job for organizational designers.

    Imagine a 1 day training for consultants in Organization design. Imagine answering the following why-what-how-what if questions. Imagine doing that through a series of real life business problems very similar to your everyday challenges. The hypothesis of this workshop is that by raising their expertise in the field of organization design, HR professionals will magnify their influence in their organizations and increase their impact in strategy formulation and execution, and, consequently, improve the organizations’ bottom line.

    The new buzzword and the actual need of many organizations nowadays is transformation. The road to transformation goes through a field of an organization design. Being able to analyze and understand the alignment between three levels of planning and decision-making: strategic, tactical and operational with three levels of organizations: organizational, process and human becomes a key capability.

    This workshop doesn’t give you a sharpened ax. It shows you how to sharpen yours. And then chop those trees the way you choose.

    Key take-aways from the workshop:
    1. The field of Organizational design has the keys to organizations’ effectiveness and efficiency
    2. The effectiveness and efficiency can be achieved by understanding the required alignment of various different elements and their interactions
    3. The HR professionals could raise their impact and transform their organizations through mentoring their top and middle management in organization design initiatives

Event Faqs

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts :)
Aristotle

We opted for two tracks conference set-up, to give people the chance to have a greater choice. Nevertheless, there are plenary sessions throughout the day – the opening key-notes and the panel-discussion is where the entire audience will be together.

The conference starts with a plenary key-notes session in a joint room. After the 3 key-notes, the conference room will be divided into 2 sections to accommodate 2 separate tracks. Each speaker has 20-25 minutes for the speech + 5-10 minutes reserved for Q&A with the audience. Altogether there is a conference chair's address key-note, 2 other key-notes and 12 corporate cases presented throughout the HR & PEOPLE ANALYTICS FORUM, making it a total of 15 presentations. There is also a plenary panel-discussion at the end.

Yes, absolutely. You choose which sessions to attend throughout the entire day.

Yes, just drop us an email to info@peopleanalyticsforum.eu

Due to the international format of the conference, English is the primary language.

Truth is we don't believe in dress-codes, so wear whatever you feel best suits you. If you like suit & tie, that's fine, but so are jeans. Our motto is "feel comfortable, while being elegant".

If your group is 5 or more people, drop us a quick email to register@peopleanalyticsforum.eu

After confirming your registration, we will send you an invoice, presumably with your company data. Based on the invoice, your company will make the bank transfer to settle the payment.

We do not take credit/debit cards or cash. Bank-transfer is the sole means of payment.

No, we don’t sell delegates’ details as leads to third parties (sorry Sponsors!). Naturally, we keep your data on our secured servers, as we will keep you posted about next edition of the HR & PEOPLE ANALYTICS FORUM in 2018. You will get a maximum of 3 email messages from us and that’s it. We leave it up to you to decide with whom you’d like to share your info.
