HRevolution 01:05 – Ask Good Business Questions
with Jakob Ejlsted - former VP People & Culture
Strategic HCM Consultant
Directior People & Culture
With co-hosts Kevyn Ricini (ADP) and Bobby Spaziani
The #HRevolution is a show leading the revolution of HR for the future evolution of business and work.
Join us as we sit down with leaders in the field and learn from their stories, findings, skills, and ideas on the future of work, inspiring the future generation of HR leaders.
In this episode, Jakob Ejlsted shares with us the importance of asking good business questions to get the most out of your people-related data, instead of just asking HR questions.
Since leadership is typically driven by profits, we need to understand this, and communicate meaningful people analytics that will help the business achieve the desired result. HR needs to be the master “translators” within their business – when we can articulate what the people want and communicate what the business needs, we can create an integrated culture that yields results.
In the conversation:
Basic decision-making roadmap with data
How good companies are leveraging people analytics to make key business decisions
The importance of having a people-first mentality during times of M&A and organisational restructuring
Building a people strategy during a global pandemic
Learning the numbers in HR and how to ask good business questions
