The Workforce Analytics Professionals Community of Practice is a forum for sharing practice and building capability in deriving insights from workforce data to support better workforce management decisions.

Data analysis is at the heart of all good decision making, and as the breadth of data collected expands and users' expectations grow, there exists a great opportunity.

The Community will look at ways to build analytic capability through sharing tools and analysis techniques and insights.
