Happy Wednesday!

Sooner or later, People Analytics as a practice will be more about products and less about research. Agree? Lately, I meet new entrepreneurs in this domain every single day! I'm fascinated by the innovation that leverages NLP, Graphs, Recommendation, and more. I must keep updating my open industry analysis, right? I also intend to keep focusing on Procurement and Ethics of People Analytics platforms and Workforce AI in the introductory course for HR professionals reskilling by practicing their own data.

Thoughts and Articles

I love many aspects of my work, and consider myself fortunate to have my career path as a People Analytics mentor and educator. But there is one thing I am most grateful for: The people I meet at work – both clients and colleagues.

When I started my People Analytics blog back in 2016, I chose one of my crane's photographs for the main page header. Cranes are a great metaphor – always on a worldwide journey, with their large flocks, dynamic roles, and inter-dependencies. They are just like us, people in organizations who are on their journey to a data-driven career.

When I wrote on that header, "data makes you fly," I couldn't imagine what would follow. The story will be published shortly in this book. Its' not only about my career path and insights. It is also about HR leaders who can embrace analytics and become heroes in their organizations. Enjoy a sneak peek, and please, write me some feedback.

Tel Aviv Chapter

Lately, I was honored to anchor the event HR & People Analytics with my talk: "Your Lighthouse In The Rough Seas Of People Analytics." It was a great opportunity for Hebrew speakers to learn from People Analytics Colleagues in Israeli and global organizations. I'll bring my lecture text and case studies review shortly for those who speak all other languages. Stay tuned!
