SMD to Speak at Northern Ohio HR Conference

Maximizing People Data to Drive Business Results

Atlanta, GA, March 11, 2019 --( Co-managing partner Scott Mondore of Strategic Management Decisions (SMD), a results-focused employee survey and assessment company, will be presenting at the 2019 Northern Ohio HR Conference, which is hosted by the Cleveland chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Dr. Mondore’s session, Maximizing People Data to Drive Business Results, will explain how human resources (HR) can shift its focus from typical HR outcomes of interest such as employee engagement or job satisfaction, to business outcomes such as customer satisfaction and financial performance. The presentation will be March 22 at 11:30 a.m. at the Cleveland Convention Center.

“We know HR practices impact an organization's bottom line, but HR leaders often fail to demonstrate this to executives,” stated Dr. Mondore. “My session will teach leaders how to go beyond slicing and dicing HR data and start demonstrating direct connections to business metrics that matter most to leaders.”

Attendees will learn how to:
· Apply a practical and proven methodology for implementing HR analytics.
· Scale analytics to all leaders at all organizational levels.
· Develop a business case and expected ROI for HR initiatives.
· Learn the Business Partner RoadMap for using practical analytics that show business impact.
