This session explores the evolving influence of the Chief Human Resources Officer, and the strategic pivot HR has made through people analytics. By dissecting interactions with CFOs, the employment of winning strategies, and the implementation of talent analytics platforms, we unpack the reshaping of power dynamics within organisations.

The advent of people analytics has not just transformed HR operations, it has recalibrated the power dynamics between HR, finance, and business leadership. This change necessitates a new approach by HR leaders, as well as an awareness of the impact on entrenched attitudes and an agility to navigate the politics of board-level influence.

  • The evolution of the CHRO's role in contemporary business environments
  • The impact of people analytics on HR's relationship with finance and business units
  • The necessity of navigating organizational politics in the realm of people analytics
  • Leveraging people analytics for strategic influence and organisational change.
