When it comes to understanding exactly what drives talent to perform in any given organisation, it’s fair to say many companies really don’t know.

Ask yourself these questions: Can you, as an HR expert, clearly explain why one of the organisation’s team members outperforms another? When it comes to leaders, are you certain you know why some forge ahead, while others simply don’t live up to expectations? What about new hires? How have you previously predicted how well they will perform once hired into your organisation?

The answer to most of these questions is probably “no”, or “I don’t know” – simply because these decisions have previously been made based on personal experience and gut feeling.

But now, companies can load themselves with HR, performance and employee data and can learn how to use this information scientifically to make better people decisions.

Eugene Lam, VP of HR of applied global service at Applied Materials (APAC), will give the keynote speech at HR Tech Interactive 2013 on big data and analytics, which will address the following topics:

•           Using talent analytics to formulate and deploy your HR strategy

•           Making sense of high end analytics

•           Generating HR imperatives by analysing data that really matters

Eugene Lam is currently a Board Director for Applied Materials SEA and an EXCO member for the Singapore Armed Forces Radio Company, Audit Committee and Staff Establishment Board. He was recently appointed by the Singapore Chief of Army to chair its HR Advisory Hub.

Prior to Applied Materials, Eugene Lam was the HR VP for APAC/Japan at Hewlett Packard.
