People Data Panel Special - Featuring Elizebeth Varghese, IBM and Dave Millner, HR Curator
Show Notes

In this People and Performance panel discussion, we will talk all things HR and Recruitment tech plus do a deep-dive into people analytics and a bit of blockchain too!

The ability to draw insights based on performance data, demographic data, recruitment and retention data, skill data and opinion data, means HR can provide valuable insights to business leaders. This is the future that HR has been pushed toward because of the pandemic.

Bill Banham is joined by three awesome panelists:

  • People and Performance Podcast co-host Chris Bjorling. Chris is also CEO at Fidello, a consulting and services firm specializing in improving human performance
  • Dave Millner, Author, Futurist, and Consulting Partner at HR Curator Ltd, a firm providing consultancy advice, support, and solutions to clients. Dave is a big influencer on social under the handle @HRCurator. 
  • Elizebeth Varghese, People & Tech Strategist and Global Leader - Talent & HR Strategy Reinvention at IBM. Recognized as a Key Global Influencer in Strategy and Analytics, Elizebeth has been listed as a Top 100 Influencer in the industry.

Panel Questions Include: 

  • In the absence of data-based decisions, every decision is an opinion or hunch. How can people analytics help create alternative scenarios that can be predictive and have the best choices recommended? 
  • Elizebeth, how important do you think it is to connect Employee Experience to the Customer Experience and why? What can HR tech still learn from customer-focused tech experiences? 
  • Dave, you advocate a need for HR to be more commercial in its’ approach. At a high level, what do you mean by this and how would you respond to the assertion that there's a concern that data and money are increasingly taking over the priorities of HR at the expense of empathy and the human touch? 
  • How can Blockchain turn HR processes and HR tech into a company's competitive advantage?
