Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, April 15, 2013 10:26 AM

Nice article on Wired written by IBM's VP HR/Workforce Analytics. He sees a fundamental shift in how organizations are searching for and developing talent: "gone are the days of static job postings and sifting through stacks of resumes."


"A unique combination of social, analytic and talent management tools are required to attract and retain the talent needed to drive value for your organization and build a Smarter Workforce."

 

He describes the example of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals:

Pressured by a tough labour market, the company first started using analytics to determine which skills were needed from their future applicants, and then matched the skills required with targeted applicants. With positive results: realizing the goal of hiring 350 scientists in a short time frame, 1000 new employees in following years, and added business value (developing 10 new drug candidates in record time).

"Unless you really love sports or really love deep, quantitative statistics (or both), the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference likely means nothing to you. However, if you fall within some circle of that Venn diagram, you know there's no grander stage for sports nerds. After all, this is the event that sportswriter Bill Simmons lovingly dubbed 'Dorkapalooza.' "
