Big Data, Big Trouble? Equal employment opportunity considerations in the Data Science Revolution

Date: September 14, 2016 ( 02:00 PM - 02:30 PM EDT )
Presenters: Eric Dunleavy, Kayo Sady

Big Data and the data science revolution are cutting edge topics in the world of work. Big Data methods have particularly interesting applications in human resource management contexts, where large preexisting databases may house an infinite amount of information related to employees and applicants. Big data applications are already in practice as they relate to recruitment and selection, and the verdict may still be out on their utility and risk. This webinar will focus on:

  • Defining what big data Means;
  • Describing real world examples of big data in the context of recruiting and employee selection;
  • Considering job-relatedness, adverse impact, and broader conceptualizations of equal employment opportunity.
