My first guest for this podcast is David Creelman, CEO of Creelman Research and fellow board member at The Workforce Institute. As an analyst, author, and industry expert, David helps HR leaders identify, understand, and address emerging trends in human capital management. He also partners with Carnegie-Mellon to lead a community of practice on analytics and evidence-based decision making for a group of Fortune 500 companies.

Prior to launching the big data workforce management group, Gregg led the manufacturing business practice at Kronos for nearly a decade. During that time he authored the book, Lean Labor: A Survival Guide for Companies Facing Global Competition, which is currently being transformed into a course by the American Payroll Association.
