Evidence-based HR: Achieve Better Results Faster
May 14, 2020 Season 2 Episode 6
Dr. Shreya Sarkar-Barney

This podcast was recorded during the HRWest 2020 conference held in Oakland, California. In this talk, Dr Shreya Sarkar-Barney skillfully leads her participants through a set of thought-provoking questions which reveals the value or lack thereof, of many common HR practices. She then guides the audience through a new operating model that positions HR on the critical path to achieving business success. She presents a decision-making framework similar to those used by financial analysts, that has the potential to drive exponential returns using quantified scientific evidence. She brings this new approach to life through a real-life case study featuring a mid-size technology firm that achieved the steep challenge of closing their revenue gap in two quarters. Listen to this podcast for a revolutionary new way to think about when, where, and how HR can deliver exponential returns.
