3:15-4:30pm: Building Culture through the Power of Data Steven Huang, Data & Insights, Culture Amp, and former People Analyst at Square and Facebook We’ve been promised that HR technology will free us from transactional work and allow us to focus on strategic initiatives. But in most organizations, enormous amounts of time are spent on collecting, cleaning and reporting on data that doesn’t move the needle. Learn how to link data throughout the employee lifecycle to measure, manage and act using evidence-based decisions. Find out why linking the employee life cycle matters, how to get executives on board, and when and how to get started!

Hope to see you there!
