Presenter:  Robin Hildick, Economist

Robin Hildick is a senior economist with the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hailing from the outskirts of London, he found himself moving to this side of the pond over a decade ago. Since then, Robin has helped people from academia, government, and the world of business with labor data they didn’t even know they need. His passion for data has driven him to write countless press releases and attended dozens of conferences, which is lucky since that’s also his job description. Robin has a BS in Economics from The College of New jersey and a Master of Applied Statistics from Penn State.

Summary of Presentation:

The Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor is the principal Federal agency responsible for measuring labor market activity, working conditions, and price changes in the economy. To do so, the Bureau collects and analyzes data from tens of thousands of businesses and households publishing it in a relevant and timely manner in over a dozen different programs. This presentation will give an overview of pay and benefit programs, including pay by demographic, geographic area, occupation, and industry.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Understand the variety of ways the BLS collects and publishes pay statistics
  • Use BLS data to see differences in pay based on demographics, geographic area, occupation, and industry

  • Find BLS data on benefits published from the employee perspective

This program has been approved by SHRM and HRCI for 1.5 Business credits. 

Lunch will be provided for those registering prior to April April 12.
