How People Analytics will Harness the Future of Work

The future of work is here and now. It is an exciting new world that represents a digitally-powered approach to the reversal of static productivity trends, and the embracing of a new open-talent economy where organisations strive to unlock new sources of competitive advantage. It is a world that favours the brave and the agile.

HR is staring into this new world with both hope and anxiety. It finds itself at the junction of either strategic greatness or isolated back-office mediocrity, all dependent on how they can respond. The opportunities for them to demonstrate how to harness the fundamental shifts in work are plentiful and the returns immense. To succeed they will need a People Analytics capability that is fit for purpose.

To assist clients in seizing these opportunities, Deloitte has developed an approach to predicting the impact of automation and open-talent workforces through powerful analytics that pinpoints how to optimise economic, productivity and customer performance during this period of immense change. This capability is set to become the strategic focus of people analytics teams, as CEO’s increasingly turn to their insight functions for the answers on how to survive and thrive in the new world of work.

Deloitte’s Workforce Analytics leaders, Luc Smeyers and Laurence Collins, will discuss how the future of work has arrived and how world class People Analytics teams hold the key to success.
