When Google launched their now famous Project Oxygen in 2008 (see this article for an overview) which was aimed to answer the question what makes a great manager, HR Analytics and HR Controlling (including predictive and advanced analytics) where already happening in a few companies – As well as quite a long time within the Work & Organizational Psychology practice and research and within connected disciplines.
Furthermore around 10 years ago some professional books had been published on how to use and deal with HR Data in order to improve companies’ processes and results (see for example the publications by Jac Fitz-Enz or John W. Boudreau).
The influence of Google on People Analytics
But it was at that time the fast growing search engine startup from the Silicon Valley, and Laszlo Bock, Google´s former Senior Vice President of People Operations, who pushed People Analytics (together with others) to the world of business and Human Resource Management by his talks.
Lazlo also wrote the very readable book “Work Rules! Insights from Inside Google That Will Transform How You Live and Lead” about his experiences at Google. I bought the English edition when it was published in 2015, so I wouldn’t have to wait for the German edition; and most times it is better to turn to the original writing.
Nowadays People & HR Analytics including workforce analytics, talent analytics, and human capital analytics are well established in bigger and some medium-sized companies – And the need for collecting and analyzing HR and business data in an util way to implement new solutions and reach determined goals is still growing.
A growing number of conferences and exhibitions
One indicator for that development are the number of technology and data sessions at HR conferences and exhibitions, and specialized events on these topics – And because of their close connections and data-driven approaches these events take into account also the not so new but hot discussed tools and methods of Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and (Generative) Artificial Intelligence.
This is indicated by the following list, where I have put together 7 conferences and exhibitions focusing on People & HR Analytics including Artificial Intelligence which will be held between September and December 2023.
There are naturally major HR events coming up like the Zukunft Personal Europe 2023 in September as well as the HR Technology 2023 in Las Vegas and the UNLEASH World 2023 in Paris (both in October), which are going to host a bunch of sessions with these analytics topics too.
But for the reason of concentrating on those specialized HR events, and to keep my list short and clear, I did not enclose the extensive ones in my collection – However I will cover them in separate newsblog articles as I did here already for the most traditional German HR summit at the Cologne fair.

If you are into People & HR Analytics like me, then you probably know most of the conferences´ names, went to one or more in the past, and/or are traveling to some soon.
And although I often strive for integrity, the list is not complete – And this was not my goal neither. I will have probably missed some events, so feel free to reach me, if another People & HR Analytics should enter into it: I will gladly add your proposal.
Have a nice day and best wishes!
