“Talent Analytics: Prospects and Opportunities”

Location: Stout NYC
133 West 33rd Street, New York, NY 10001

The big data trend has made its way to talent management. Indeed, the availability of large-scale human resources (HR) data provide unparalleled opportunities for business leaders to understand talent behaviors and generate useful talent knowledge, which in turn deliver intelligence for real-time decision making and effective people management at work. In this talk, I will introduce innovative big data techniques developed for evaluating the management performance, recruit and retain talent, enhance talent development, and demonstrate how the results of talent analytics can be used for financial investment. In addition, I will explain how data analytic techniques have successfully applied for people-related issues, such as recruiting, performance evaluation, talent retention, talent development, job matching, team management, leadership development, and organization culture analysis. Finally, I will present two case studies: 1) recruitment market trend analysis with sequential latent variable models, and 2) talent circle detection in job transition networks.
