Yesterday I chatted with our board members David Creelman and William Tincup about what organizations need to do to create HR analytics that matter to the business. Big Data is one of the linchpins of the big 4 SMAC themes in technology today: Social-Mobile-Analytics-Cloud. Deployed alone and in various combinations, these technologies continue to transform the way work gets done. For many people, harnessing the power of big data remains a new frontier. In this podcast, David and William share their thoughts on some of the following questions:
If you’re new to analytics, how do you get started?
What skills do you need to implement analytics projects?
How do you present the results of your data analysis to senior management?

As the week winds down, you may enjoy checking out this video of our fun and fond farewell to our 2014 summer interns. I know they learned a lot while they were here, but we also learned a lot from them. The Kronolympics is a series of silly contests that they complete as teams, with time and quality being important. Kind of like the world of work, hunh? We refer to our culture as Work Inspired. I hope we inspired these terrific people as much as they inspired us.
