WFA6: Managing Workforce Retention and Identifying High Performers With Predictive Analytics

Managing Workforce Retention and Identifying High Performers With Predictive Analytics

Event Link
Friday 07 October
09:30 AM – 10:30 AM

The Anderson Center for Autism, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the highest-quality programs for people with autism, wanted to transform its HR and payroll function, and harmonize its HCM system at the same time. While doing this, its leaders became aware of two issues: the need to identify potential retention issues, and at the same time, its high performers. Within a week of activating predictive analytics tools to do this, HR leaders were able to identify essential employees at risk of leaving and take action. Anderson is now using these tools to take proactive measures to keep its best talent and to determine whether the retention processes in place are actually working. Through its journey, you’ll learn to identify areas where predictive analytics can be used, how they can be used on a daily basis, and how to best connect people and data to help your company achieve ultimate success.
