#HRUChicago – People Analytics

HR Unconference

#HRU events are a global series of events where the emphasis is on conversation, cross-level communication and free exchange of ideas and experiences, aimed at HR practitioners, recruiters and corporate executives about the latest innovations and technologies used in making HR easier. These events are organised in more than 50 countries across the world and attended by over 6 000 people globally.

#HRUChicago will be hyper-focused on issues related to data of building and developing HR capabilities within the organization. We will discuss how to enable managers to make data-driven HR decisions, and how hiring analytics teams should measure the growth and improve employee satisfaction. We will share cases and successful implementations of data analytics tools and best practices.

At #HRU you will also have a chance to network with top level executives from the most forward thinking organizations in the US and enjoy the spirit of a true Unconference!
