DCI’s Director of Personnel Selection and Litigation Support Dr. Eric Dunleavy testified at EEOC on behalf of SHRM on big data

Dr. Eric M. Dunleavy, Director of the Personnel Selection and Litigation Support Services Group at DCI Consulting, spoke on behalf of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) at an EEOC Public Commission Meeting on October 13th, 2016. This meeting addressed the growing use of algorithms to make employment decisions. “The question of whether employers can leverage contemporary big data for employment decision making has been answered in the affirmative,” Dr. Dunleavy acknowledged. “Whether employers should do so, and how to go about it in their particular situation, are separate questions. It will be particularly interesting to monitor the research and practice literature over the coming years as more relevant information related to big data tools becomes available.”
