A Dive into HR & Workforce Analytics: One Easy Question Can Open the Door to Another Game Changing Question

Many organizations, regardless of industry, could face a challenge known as the Silver Tsunami: The aging workforce in the United States, stemming largely from the ever-pending retirement of the Baby Boomer generation.

Come listen to the story of how a Tableau Architect worked with a major U.S. State Government agency to provide them a Diversity & Inclusion study, and how the exercise took a left turn halfway through, and immediately led to an analytical Aha moment that could have lasting impact on the mission of the organization as it plans for staff now and in the near future.
