HR is confronted with a two-sided coin. Every time John Smith interviews a candidate, and the organization hires them the candidate does not stay.

Management is screaming what is causing this to happen. Do we blame John Smith? Do we blame the work environment? This is management pushing the when response. This is big data in action. As HR professionals we are more concerned with why things happen rather than when. The Big Data and HR looks at the differences between answering the when question vs. the why question. The webinar also presents an alternative view to Big Data which will provide you with the same metrics as big data but in easier terms to understand the needs of the organization.

Why you should Attend: Look at the professional HRM journals. Look at the professional business journals. Almost every issue has some article that pertains to the role of huge databases and their use in our operations. This is fine if you are trying to predict when something will occur. But what if that is not the answer to your problem? Human Capital Management needs to know the why’s of the process, but even more important they need to understand Why something occurred, whether it is a failed hire, an uptick in terminations etc. If the why is your immediate need then Big Data will not work.

Participating in this webinar will provide you with a better understanding of just what the use of Big Data entails along with the challenges to its use on our operations. At the same time it will present you with an alternative model to achieve the same metrics with a different focus - why’s of HRM operations.
