    The Predictive Power That HR Can Bring

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).

    Last week we talked about the realities of the Ideal HR-vendor relationship, and this week we're going to talk about the predictive power HR can bring (we're proud sponsors of the Predictive Analytics World for Workforce).

    In a global market where the recruiters spend seconds reviewing resumes, it’s no wonder the "gut feel in hiring" is less accurate than a coin flip. 

    Enter predictive analytics: the ability to take what happened in the past and find common relationships and factors (leveraging human behavior and neural networks) to model and predict the future and report back in analytics with recommendations for the future.  

    Departments like Finance, Sales and Marketing are already using predictive analytics. Now it’s HR’s turn.

    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about the predictive power HR can bring with this week’s guests: Chad W. Harness, VP of Lead Human Capital Analytics Consultant at Fifth Third Bank; and Jen Phillips Kirkwood, ADP Analytics and Innovation Ambassador.

    Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: Dice, TalentWise, Hootsuite, IBM, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Jobvite, Predictive Analytics World for Workforce and HRmarketer Insight. And we're big CandE supporters!
