To conclude a successful People Analytics Month, the London Meetup Group gathered virtually on the 30th of April to discuss the first topic of Career Paths in HR Analytics led by @Mike Ulrich @Jordan Pettman and myself. Initial focus was placed on the Career Path in HR Analytics Report with discussion on the types of participants within the study and general profiles of participant backgrounds. The discussion was then narrowed down to more niche topics such as what HR professionals do next and what we can tell about HR leaders, from the study results. Discussion was then opened up to the group with many contributions from attendees.
Key topics of discussion included
- What do HR Professionals do before a career in HR analytics
- What kind of roles do they undertake during their time in analytics
- What do HR professionals go on to do after a career in analytics
Then our guest speaker Gigi Oliver, from the FCA gave a short presentation on cognitive diversity within analytics. Looking at the important of diversity in data with brief discussion on AI and the issues of diversity within algorithms.
There was also time for networking where our attendees, from all walks of HR, were able to connect and share their own experiences within the industry. We’re glad that London meetup group is still so engaged, even in a virtual setting! We’re looking forward to our next session in July.
