A Visit to Birmingham City University: The Importance of Data Driven Learning
It was fantastic to visit Birmingham City University to deliver a guest lecture on data-driven learning to Human Resources (HR) master's students. Walking through the doors, we were thrilled to see so many bright students eager to learn.
In today's fast-paced world, data is the lifeblood of business. It's used in every industry to streamline processes and achieve the best results. That's why we were there - to share our experiences with future HR leaders and shed light on the importance of data-driven learning.
To provide context and a real-world example, we used our recent learning programme 'Handling Difficult Conversations, Caring for Yourself and Others with Compassion' to illustrate key points. Aimed at patient-facing NHS staff, this programme achieved a 95% satisfaction score and a massive 25% boost in confidence levels.
During our visit, we went into detail about the importance of planning and preparation. We discussed how objectives drive a programme, the methodologies we used to analyse their success, and the importance of data in research. We were delighted to see the students understanding the significance of using data to enhance research.
Dave Field, our MD, couldn't help but express his gratitude for the opportunity to present and collaborate with the master's students on crucial HR topics. Witnessing how Birmingham City University invests in shaping future leaders was inspiring to us all.
The statistical model developed by Sara Gracey, BCU's Senior Lecturer, and Trainer, showed the impact of our programme on tackling post-pandemic causes of absenteeism, turnover, and poor morale. With her help, we can create more supportive, positive environments for frontline staff, and ultimately improve working lives.
Sara Gracey, Senior Lecturer, and Trainer at BCU also expressed her gratitude to the escalla team, stating:
"I want to sincerely thank the escalla team for visiting my MA students yesterday and delivering such an impressive guest lecture. This was so warmly received and has given many of them useful food for thought as they work towards their assessments and future careers. The content was of great interest to my students, particularly getting to see the real-life data collected on the NHS CC programme and hearing you both discuss how this has been involved in your decision-making."
Our visit was a reminder of the significance of data-driven learning's potential and how it can solve significant HR problems. The session allowed aspiring HR professionals to understand the power of using data to achieve results.
The visit was a great success, with many students sharing that they felt more empowered and informed about the potential of data-driven learning. We left feeling grateful and content; our visit had indeed helped shape the future of HR.
