DeGroote’s Analytical Insights (DAI) is kicking off the “Why Data Analytics” miniseries this month with its first workshop coming Thursday, November 17 at 6 p.m. The first of these events will be the Human Resources-focused workshop, with the purpose of the workshop to demonstrate how Data Analytics enhances the roles and responsibilities of Human Resources.
The event will feature guest speaker Lori Free, who has over 20 years of experience in the HR field and is currently the Vice President of Talent & Organizational Development at Nutrien.
