A recent Bersin survey pointed out that just 28 percent of organizations have “good” or “very good” levels of proficiency in basic data literacy skills. And that makes sense, because it often feels like you need a statistics degree to understand HR analytics. But the truth is, you don’t need a degree. You just need to know what to look for and how to turn that into meaningful conclusions. Degreed and Watershed are here to help.

Join us for Data Fluency for Dummies. This webcast will bring together data experts from both organizations to help you understand important learning analytics to look for and how to draw insights from data sets.
