    About the Presentation

    Organizations are increasingly turning to Big Data and predictive analytics to solve hiring problems and improve talent acquisition.  However, just like the fight for love and glory, the fundamental things still apply.  To optimize talent acquisition through predictive analytics, organizations need to understand job requirements, understand what problem they are solving, and, still, minimize the potential for human error in judgment.

    This presentation provides a brief overview of both the promise and reality of predictive analytics for hiring.  Examples of successes and failures will help the audience better understand what to do when implementing their own solutions or seeking outside vendors.

    The presentation will also cover strategic planning, what has to happen upfront to get the most out of a Big Data play, and win the "war on talent" by finding productive employees who are engaged and passionate about their work.
