Learn how Volvo Cars transformed its approach to people data. Discover the challenges faced when these critical functions operated in silos and the benefits achieved through a unified strategy and collaboration.
Hear about the organisational shifts, technology choices, and cultural considerations that enabled Volvo Cars to leverage data for enhanced strategic planning, efficiency, and agility that can support the company's ambitious strategy.
This session offers guidance for HR and People Analytics Leaders as well as insights for executives keen to understand how a data-informed approach to people strategy can increase value to the business.
In many organisations, HR functions responsible for analytics, talent intelligence, and workforce planning operate independently. This disjointed approach hinders data-informed decision-making, leading to missed opportunities, inefficiencies, and fewer value-adding activities.
A unified approach offers great synergies and aligns people data with organisational goals, offering insights to optimise workforce planning, talent acquisition, and navigate changing market conditions.

This session will explore:

  • Volvo Cars' initial challenges stemming from disconnected people functions
  • The compelling business case for unification
  • Practical steps: organisational redesign, technology, and fostering a data-informed culture
  • Overcoming roadblocks during implementation and lessons learned
  • Best practices and considerations for organisations embarking on a similar transformation.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the benefits of a unified approach to people data
  • Grasp the prerequisites for successful consolidation of HR functions
  • Discover how to overcome common challenges in this process
  • Develop a framework for aligning people data with overarching business strategy
  • Gain tools and techniques to communicate the value of people data to executives.
