Develop a Data Governance Strategy to Streamline Internal Access to Data and Ignite Your People Analytics Initiative

All too often HR practitioners in larger organizations face internal barriers when trying to access employee data in order to do their jobs.  Gain valuable insight into the internal challenges faced, why they exist and how a streamlined approach can be forged to gain access to the data required in a timely manner.  Create a blueprint for data governance to help you:

  • Understand the rights and responsibilities of those departments that own and have custody of the data you need
  • Eliminate unnecessary internal barriers to data acquisition
  • Manage immutable obstacles inherent to existing governance frameworks to streamline the data acquisition process
