Turncoat Employees Reveal Their Intentions in Subtle Word Choices | DiscoverMagazine.com

Turncoat Employees Reveal Their Intentions in Subtle Word Choices | DiscoverMagazine.com | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it
It’s possible to detect insider threats within a company just by looking at the words employees use to communicate with each other.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Cool research! Researchers discovered that the language people use in e-mail communication can somewhat predict their intentions and also show your 'real' identify.

 

From the original research abstract:

"Analysis of the language used in participants’ e-mails found that insiders became more self-focused, showed greater negative affect, and showed more cognitive processing compared to their coworkers. At the interpersonal level, insiders showed significantly more deterioration in the degree to which their language mimicked other team members over time."

5 Aggressive Plays in Sports Analytics

5 Aggressive Plays in Sports Analytics | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it
A new International Institute of Analytics research report, sponsored by SAS, details leading-edge player and team performance analytics -- and more.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Some insights from a recent report by Tom Davenport about Analytics in Sports: The New Science of Winning. Davenport describes five "frontier" analytics applications, only used by a few sport teams aggressively today. These five sports analytics applications are:


1) Analytics on video

2) Analytics on location/biometric data

3) Gathering and using proprietary data on players

4) Engaging players in analytics

5) Open data analysis by fans


If sport teams can use them, why not business or HR?

Get the Right Data Scientists Asking the “Wrong” Questions

Get the Right Data Scientists Asking the “Wrong” Questions | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it
A great team of analysts is made up more than only number-crunchers.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Intriguing stuff for Data Scientists in this HBR blog post. Sometimes starting with the "wrong" question (eg. the opposite of what you might have in mind) will give you more answers to the problem you want to solve.

 

"The idea that a team should start off on the wrong foot might sound counterintuitive, but our data science team spends a lot of time asking, and experimenting with, “wrong” questions in order to get to the better questions that yield solutions for clients."

Global Firms Way Behind in HR Analytics

The Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends 2014 Report surveyed more than 2,500 business and HR leaders in 94 countries around the world, and the vast majority are not using analytics for talent recruitment or retention.

Via David Green
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Sobering, yet interesting findings from the latest Deloitte Human Capital Trends report on the field of HR Analytics. In summary: HR sees Talent and HR Analytics as very important, but is lacking the right analytical capabilities to make it happen.

Management by the Numbers | Knowledge@Wharton

"People analytics isn't perfect -- yet. But it helps eliminate biases in important areas such as recruitment, says Wharton's Cade Massey."

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Well-worth to watch/read 20 minutes interview with Wharton Professor Cade Massey on Analytics in HR. (Main question: How Effective Is a Number-crunching Approach to Managing People?)

 

Great Q&A quote:

Q: "If you were to look at the future, what do you think people analytics will be able to do, say, five years from now that it cannot do it today?"


Massey: "I look at the frontier of this, which is in the sports world. To watch what they have done in the last five years is to see, I think, where we are going to go in the next 20."

Big Data Takes On Big Weather - The European Business Review

Big Data Takes On Big Weather - The European Business Review | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it

"Some European cities are turning to Big Data to not only predict the weather and its potential impact, but also to address public safety and business concerns that accompany adverse conditions. Below, Djeevan Schiferli argues that the ability to make better use of all this data can dramatically improve the way cities, businesses and citizens plan for and manage the harsh conditions that extreme weather throws at our urban centres."
