HR Happy Hour 179 - Data Driven HR (Live from Equifax Workforce Solutions Forum 2014)
Recorded Tuesday, April 1, 2014
Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane
Guests: Dann Adams, President, Equifax Workforce Solutions and Mike Psenka, Senior Vice President Workforce Analytics, Equifax Workforce Solutions
Last week Steve and Trish were able to attend Equifax Workforce Solutions Annual User Conference in Scottsdale, AZ and sit down with Dann Adams and Mike Psenka to talk about some of the ways that more advanced capability and increased availability of data and analytics are changing the way HR gets done, and increasing the opportunities for HR to contribute significant business value.
Data is increasingly the 'must have' resource for HR leaders. It can allow the leveraging of that data and the related insights on pay, turnover, and job movement from a wide swath of industries and millions of data points in order to give organizations a better understanding of how their workforce trends stack up to their peers. It also means using data and decision support tools to ensure the organization is making the right decisions and remaining compliant with complex ACA requirements.
On the show, Dann and Mike share a few examples and offer some insights as to how HR organizations can get the most value from these data driven approaches.
This was a fun and informative show and I would like to thank Dann, Mike, and everyone at Equifax Workforce Solutions for allowing the HR Happy Hour Show to be a part of Forum 2014.

This episode is part of our FINANCIAL FIERCENESS!™ series! This series integrates our financial goals into our development plan for surpassing our goals. We deal with the specific issues we need to explore in order to achieve (and surpass) our financial goals. In this episode we are examining the issue of “Credit score, who cares?!” This is Part 1 of a 2 part series.
The credit score is fascinating. We are addressing consumer credit scores in this episode but there are also credit scores (or ratings) for businesses and nations. In general, your consumer credit score is a product that is sold by three major private companies in the USA (Equifax, TransUnion and Experian), to entities about you. The fact that it is sold only because it is about you is the really unique and interesting aspect of the situation. Literally, this is one time in life when it is “all about you!” The situation is that entities want to know if they should loan you money. If you never borrow money (or property), you do not have any interaction with a credit score and this is not the episode for you to listen to! Remember that if you rent an apartment, car, etc., that is considered a financial risk so the credit score will be used.
This Part 1 of a 2 part episode focuses on an overview of what the credit score is, how it came into existence in modern times and how it impacts your financial life!
