GGU’s Lasting Impression at HR West 2016

GGU’s presence was felt at HR West 2016!

The conference that brings together practicing human resource professionals in Northern California, was held in the Oakland Convention Center March 7 – 9. GGU’s Outreach team attended all three days informing attendees of our accredited degree programs which include HR management, and Industrial-Organizational Psychology. Our GGU team had great conversations with attendees about career advancement and was able to share that our programs are available online and in person. The team also connected with many alumni and students in attendance.

Dr. Jeremy Welland, Adjunct Professor and Director of People Analytics at Pandora, presented a powerful presentation on data analytics at HR West.  The session provided insights on why many current systems are ineffective and the importance of linking appropriate metrics to business strategy. To tie these ideas together, Dr. Welland presented examples from Pandora’s implemented strategy to serve as a blueprint. Following the presentation, many inquired about our MBA program which offers a concentration in data analytics while raving about his informative session.
