This Week’s Featured Speakers

Michael DeAngelo
Head of People, Pinterest
How Pinterest Builds Culture

Strong culture makes for a strong company, and Pinterest knows well the importance of distinguishing its culture to fit its creative personality.

This talk will focus on Pinterest’s strategy, “Culture@Pinterest,” the company’s north star used to help build and strengthen its work environment.

Michael shares how, through a number of programs, specifically its stock option extension program, Pinterest has differentiated its culture in a crowded tech market to build a successful workforce.

Director, People Analytics, Pandora
The People Analytics Maturity Journey at Pandora

A leading provider of online music, Pandora has used predictive analytics for years to deliver personalized music to its followers. Now, they’re using their analytics cleverness in-house to create fruitful human resources programs.

Jeremy’s talk will focus on Pandora’s data-driven approach to people management. It will include discussion on how the company defined its “People Analytics Roadmap,” and present examples on how Pandora uses assessments, analytical techniques and data visualizations to shine a spotlight on its human resources programs across recruiting, performance evaluation, leadership, promotion, and diversity and inclusion.

Jan Sysmans
Senior Director Marketing — Growth Markets, Saba
Performance Management: Time to Fix a Broken System

It’s no news that traditional performance management systems have come under scrutiny in recent years. This talk will share more effective alternatives to measure employee success.
