  • Introduction
    • Business and HR leaders have been managing their workforces in the dark, based on a gut-instinct and intuition. Given the growing complexities of the workforce, this approach is no longer acceptable. Businesses are demanding insights from HR. Mercer’s training provides HR and business professionals with a proven approach and practical guidance of how to use data to make a real difference to how an organization manages its workforce. The training covers strategic workforce planning, metrics and analytics in multinational and domestic organizations.

  • Overview
