During this program, Ricks will discuss how the use of data has shifted from the periphery to the core of the human resources function. He'll also showcase how he uses data visualisation to enable business decision making.

  • Manage your workforce communications during a crisis and 

  • Review, adapt and evolve human capital spending during both a crisis and the following recovery period.
