SHRI Webinar: Preview Launch of

Data Driven Organisation Survey

SHRI is proud to collaborate with The Center of Applied Data Science (CADS) and Kincentric to launch a Data Driven Organisation (DDO) Survey.

The term “Data” has been a big thing for about a decade now but do we truly understand what it means for an organisation to be data driven?


“To create an organisation that will thrive in a new Digital Economy is not based on the brain power of their data scientists, or the actual functionality of their technology but operating in a radical data-driven culture. The key strategic advantage and biggest asset is that organisations are able to live, breathe, and act according to the data. This means being able to harness amazing big data assets and develop excellent algorithms to interpret (and monetize) that data. It’s a way of working which is cultivated, nurtured and harnessed with time, being supported with by the pillars of Strategy, Talent, Organisation, Analytics, Data and Technology” an abstract from Harvard Business Review.


Join this preview Webinar to hear from our speakers how your organisation or you as a HR Professional can work towards becoming a DDO.

Date: 17 July 2020, Friday

Time: 4pm

Platform: Zoom

Fee: Free for SHRI Members | $20 for non-members (waived in view of COVID-19)


How CHROs can prepare for the Future of Work –

Digitalize, Then Fly – Transitioning into Data-Driven Maturity

by Speaker - Sharala Axryd

Transforming the business to thrive in a digital economy is the number one priority of many organisations today. But what is the Chief Human Resources Officer’s (CHRO) role within organisational alignment towards becoming data-driven? Achieving full implementation of data-driven maturity means the execution of an augmented strategy that champions change across functions, staging the roll out of technology and enhancing capabilities of talent. Ultimately organisations that differentiates themselves drive a culture of action based on insights and where insights is based on data. 

People in the Heart of a Digital Evolution

by Speaker - Andrew How

Digital transformation has proved time and again to be the key catalyst in disrupting organisations across industries. Some companies have rode on the wave and seized opportunities enabled by digital technology, and some have shut their lights. As leaders lead their organisations to a digital economy, they will need to start building a new culture that leverages the power of data and insights to execute their business plan and compete in the market. Leaders need to start shifting their mindsets to leverage data insights for their decision making process, which will be crucial for organisations to thrive in the future.
