2. CIPD's Head of Research on Driving Business Performance with People Data - Interview with Edward Houghton, Head of Research and Thought Leadership at the CIPD

Welcome to the second episode of the first series of the Digital HR Leaders podcast. This week, we look at driving business performance with people data. With 69% of large organisations now having a people analytics team, interest in the topic has never been higher. But how do you actually drive business performance with people data?

That's the topic of this week's show. Our guest today is Edward Houghton, Head of Research and Thought Leadership at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, or the CIPD, where he has been the lead author on a number of landmark studies on analytics, measurement, metrics and impact evaluation.

In today's podcast, we discuss the importance of people analytics to Business Leaders, Investors Workers, and HR. We give examples of where people analytics has helped drive business performance. We also look at the most important topic probably in people analytics that of employee trust and ethics and then we look at what the CIPD is doing, the initiatives it is taking to help improve data literacy amongst HR professionals. And then finally, we also look ahead and ponder what the role of HR will be in 2025. This episode is a must listen for anyone who works in a people analytics role and indeed anyone interested in the topic of evidence-based management.
