Mapping your employees
by Scott Young, Head of HR at Redeye
As part of their business planning process Redeye carried out a staff survey that they then inputted into a simple software programme to better understand how their staff were interacting. The results have meant they can identify where Managers aren't being effective in terms of sharing information; whose resignation could cause the biggest threat to the business and they now have a tool that they can use to offset various employee scenarios. Scott will share some of the insights they found and explain how you can easily implement something similar in your business.

This panel will build on Scott's presentation and will look at other examples of where data has been used to understand more about the people working in your business. This panel will be interactive and there will be lots of opportunities to ask questions and understand how you can apply some of these techniques to your business.
