People analytics is a data-driven approach to managing people at work. For the first time in history, business leaders can make decisions about their people based on deep analysis of data rather than the traditional methods of personal relationships, decision making based on experience, and risk avoidance. The New Zealand Analytics Forum has curated some exceptional speakers who will enlighten us on the field of the analytics of people and employment.

This event is kindly sponsored by Hudson and Qrious.

The event is free of charge and will be followed by drinks and nibbles.



Our speakers:


Datamine: How to build a winning analytics team

Paul O’Connor – Founder

Since its foundation, Datamine’s driving philosophy has been to take its client’s decision making ‘beyond guesswork’ — and it’s this philosophy that also underscores the company’s approach to recruitment. Key learnings Paul will relay will include:

  • How to recruit for ‘fit’ not just for skills
  • How to evaluate and rank the skills and competencies required within your teams
  • How to align the interview questions you ask with your company vision — and why should keep asking them year after year
  • How to gain insight from recruitment failures as well as successes
  • Why a bad hire is always worse than no hire and how to get comfortable saying no
  • How job seekers can best prepare and self-evaluate to align themselves with a prospective employer’s vision


Hudson: Deep dive into analytics employment trends in New Zealand

Tony Pownall – General Manager, and Sarah White – Associate Director Analytics

Tony and Sarah will present Hudson’s latest market research on the New Zealand analytics  employment environment, specifically covering trends and challenges in analytics recruitment, comparing the findings to the general market. The insights should help both hiring managers and practitioners better understand the talent landscape for 2017.


Countdown: Measuring the ROI on change and transformation projects

Jason Tuck – National HR Manager, Employment Relations

Jason will talk about developing Human Resource and Employment Relations strategies that align with the strategic goals and direction of the organisation to create successful and sustainable outcomes.

Jason will take us through a case study about measuring the ROI on change and transformation projects.

  • Developing a measurement and data collection plan
