The UCLA Anderson School of Management & HARRT at UCLA present the Dean’s Series: FUTURE of WORK with Professor Jeffrey Polzer, Harvard Business School.

In the past year, organizations were forced to be resilient and innovative as they rapidly adopted creative ways of working in a new and ambiguous world. COVID-19 also exposed many business vulnerabilities, none as important as the ability to quickly respond to the human side of the business.
When addressing a variety of people-related business challenges, leaders learned that having a digital advantage is imperative to thrive today and in the future. In the new people analytics domain, employee-related initiatives regarding productivity, networks, leadership, organizational agility, culture, employee experience, and more will be radically transformed.

Professor Polzer will discuss how human resource leaders and managers can use people analytics to gather and apply employee data from traditional sources and new digital platforms to structure all facets of the employee lifecycle. He will share how to achieve a competitive advantage by making effective employee decisions using a data-driven lens to look beyond collecting employee information to analyzing and designing new approaches to work in the future.
