Strategic Workforce Planning congress
Even in 2015, the effective application of Workforce Planning, HR Analytics and Predictive Analysis remains challenging for many organisations. To provide Talent Managers, Recruitment Professionals, Personnel Planners and other HR related Managers with new insights in the new HR challenges, the first ‘Strategic Workforce Planning & Talent Analytics Seminar’ was launched last year.

This year’s edition of the event takes place in the Radisson-Blu Royal Hotel in Brussels on the 28th and 29th of May and is organised by Icon Group Innovations. The meeting is intended to bring together Directors and Managers in the field of HR, personnel planning, talent management, recruitment and organisation development. Over a period of two days, the participants will learn how to, on a strategic level, approach talent management questions and how the clever analysis of mountains of big data – HR analytics – can help improve HR-strategies.
