David has been a contributor on a number of research studies, academic papers and books in the people analytics and future of work space. The most recent of these are highlighted below:
IBM Smarter Workforce Institute | Co-Authors: Nigel Guenole & Sheri Feinzig| 2018
Over 20,000 workers in 44 countries were surveyed for their ethical perspective on data use in HR analytics particularly where legislation does not currently exist. This white paper presents the main findings as well as providing recommendations for HR leaders, people analytics practitioners and employees.
David presented some of the key findings of the study at UNLEASH in London in March 2018 as well as referencing it in his blog: Don't forget the 'H' in HR.
IBM Smarter Workforce Institute | Co-Authors: Nigel Guenole & Sheri Feinzig | 2017
UNLEASH and the IBM Smarter Workforce Institute investigated the workforce analytics readiness of organisations inside and outside of Europe. Results indicated that despite the existence of clear examples of excellence in workforce analytics in Europe, European Human Resource practitioners feel less prepared to deliver workforce analytics projects successfully than their colleagues in the rest of the world.
David presented some of the key findings of the study at UNLEASH in Amsterdam in October 2017 - see copy of presentation here.
