Patrick Coolen provides an overview of the foundations of People Analytics for organisations at the start of the journey.

He will also present and explain how ABN Amro are applying an ML algorithm to unstructured skill data to create employee skill profiles, as a way to sidestep the need for a skills taxonomy – an often complex and expensive undertaking. Lastly, he provides a future agenda for the field of People Analytics in general.

This session will explore:

  • Foundations – our mission, our journey, the process, and the data
  • Practical example – creating skill profiles with machine learning
  • The future – an agenda for the development of People Analytics.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the foundations of a successful People Analytics function
  • Find out how machine learning can be used in skills analysis
  • Get a glimpse of where ABN Amro are heading, and how People Analytics is evolving.
