Free Learning Series: How to Use External Data for Decision Making

As a growing number of HR teams get exceedingly better at using their information for decision-making, it’s also important to recognize the value of what you can do with data that is outside of your company. That said, there is a vast amount of information out there, so it is often overwhelming when trying to decide what to look at and how to use the information.

To help, Numerical Insights has put together a free educational series of short emails designed to show you real examples of how companies are using external data to support their HR decisions and their workforce planning. We’ll send you an example every few weeks that you read at your convenience. No long videos, no fixed schedule, just “short reads” in your mailbox. Our examples will use mostly U.S. data but the concepts will work for any country.

To take advantage of this offer, you can sign up by clicking this link. Be sure to select YES to the question about receiving the “external data learning series.” This offer is open to leaders and practitioners inside and outside of HR. 

Until next time,
