Influencing With Data

Being a data-driven leader means more than gathering raw data, crafting bullet points, and putting a chart in a presentation deck. As a recruiting leader, time is often of the essence and you need to use data to influence action – that means sorting through the noise and communicating easy, digestible takeaways to guide your company’s leadership team to take action. 

With this live, virtual training, you’ll learn data fundamentals and gain the tools to design reports and presentations that translate your knowledge into exec-level insights, while being easy to digest, actionable, and engaging. Case studies and examples in the training will center around different scenarios in recruiting, making it simple for you to apply directly to your work.

The training is designed for current and emerging Talent Leaders, and is led by seasoned recruiting leaders with deep in-house experience at rapid-growth, iconic companies. 

The content in our academy courses is intended for in-house recruiting teams. If this is not you but you are still interested, please contact us before registering.
