SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- hiQ Labs, the industry leader in People Analytics, will build upon the momentum of hiQ Elevate with the launch of the Inaugural Elevation Awards to acknowledge the achievements teams and individuals are making in the world of People Analytics directly following the conference on October 26th being held at Intel's Santa Clara Campus.
hiQ Elevate has been chosen as "one of the top People Analytics Conferences to attend in 2016-2017," by David Green, industry leader and IBM's Global Director of People Analytics Solutions. For the past two years, hiQ Elevate has brought together thousands of thought leaders in People Analytics including Data Scientists, Workforce Scientists, Talent Analysts, and Chief Human Resource Officers (CHROs) from Fortune 500 companies who provide enriching conversation and industry best practices. The full day event showcases hiQ's People Analytics technology and case studies from CHROs that are using data to impact business decisions and improve employee happiness.
People Analytics has had expansive growth in recent years because of a shift in thinking within the Human Resources industry to data driven problem solving. hiQ Labs recognizes that this shift wouldn't be possible without the hard work of some extraordinary teams and individuals, and it's time to shine the spotlight on them at the Elevation Awards.
A special moment during the ceremony will be presenting the Guru Lifetime Achievement Award – to Laszlo Bock, a true pioneer, best-selling author, and an individual who has devoted his career to People Analytics, most notably at Google, serving as Senior Advisor and Former Senior Vice President, People Operations. "I'm humbled to receive this recognition from hiQ Labs and the People Analytics community. The collective work of people across academia, start-ups, and larger organizations is transforming not just the HR field, but the nature and promise of work. Together we're all making work better, everywhere," said Laszlo Bock.
"Who better to receive the guru award than the person credited with founding the field of People Analytics. Laszlo Bock has made an immeasurable impact in elevating the field of People Analytics to new heights, and we are beyond honored to present him with the Guru award as People Analytics would not be what it is today without his contributions and dedication," said Michael Housman, PhD, Workforce Scientist in Residence, hiQ Labs and member of the Elevation Awards Selection Committee.
The Elevation Awards will include seven additional categories honoring individuals and companies for their contributions and excellence in People Analytics. The winners for these categories will be revealed next week. Companies interested in joining hiQ Labs and being a part of this historic event should reach out to hiQ labs for partnership opportunities and more information.
