Organizations often attribute success directly to “their most important asset,” their people. So, it is a welcome trend in analytics to see more and more people, events and publications talking about talent and workforce analytics while more companies have begun to look inward at their own people as a data source for performance-related analytics.

Indeed, just in the last week, you may have read about talent analytics-related topics in Information Week, the The Atlantic, CIO Review Magazine, or a myriad of other resources posted daily on our twitter feed.

Perhaps you even read about using talent analytics to reduce call center turnoverat a major financial company or Accenture’s work to enhance recruiting and retention.

While talent or workforce analytics seems to be everywhere you look, analysts and data scientists working on employee performance optimization efforts today have some fundamental questions, including:

  • Hype aside, what is involved in the actual exercise of this kind of analytics?
  • How do you measure people?
  • What do “raw talent” metrics look like, and how are they processed?
  • How are advanced analytical methods used with these numbers to categorize groups and predict outcomes?
  • Do regressions, clusters, trees, other methods play nicely with people data? Most importantly, do they work?

On Tuesday 11/26 from 12-1pm Eastern, Talent Analytics Chief Scientist Pasha Roberts will answer these questions and provide technical details for working with the unique and high value “raw talent” dataset. This is an ideal opportunity to cut through the hype and get a pragmatic, technical perspective from a true industry-leader on using predictive talent analytics to optimize talent.
