Program length: 60 minutes

You may not know it, but your company is already a big data company. Most companies are sitting on a wealth of workforce data – 16 million data points on average for a Fortune 500 company, much of that stored in HR systems. Yet only a very small percentage (4%) of companies have figured out how to harness that data to manage and predict workforce performance.

When applied to the workforce, the principles of Big Data, Workforce Science and Predictive Analytics can help companies understand drivers of worker performance in ways only dreamed about before. Most companies already know how well workers are performing, but with Big Data, companies can also know why they are performing at that level, and how they can improve worker performance.

Companies already applying Big Data to HR are reaping rewards. Deloitte reports that HR teams are four times more likely to be respected by their business counterparts for their data-driven decision-making.

In this program, Dr. Michael Housman of evolv will offer key tips and best practices for HR practitioners to:

  • Define and build a big data strategy that focuses on WF performance

  • Get value out the data you already have and identify new data to capture

  • Understand the do’s and don’ts for launching a data-driven WF optimization initiative

  • Learn about predictive analytics and how it can drive business change

  • Translate big data findings into business insights that allow you to forecast real measurable ROI outcomes

About the presenter: Dr. Michael Housman leads the Analytics group at Evolv where he applies state-of-the-art statistical methodologies and econometric techniques to glean new, unexpected and frequently counterintuitive insights from large volumes of client and public data. Prior to Evolv, he was the Managing Director of Applied Science at Pascal Metrics, a leading provider of patient safety and risk management services healthcare systems. At Pascal Metrics, he led the firm’s research and development initiatives, managed all data-related activities and coordinated the migration of several core products to the next generation software platform. Earlier, he worked with research organizations, including the RAND Corporation, The Urban Institute and The Lewin Group.
