BigData in Human Resources: Talent Analytics Comes of Age

BigData in Human Resources: Talent Analytics Comes of Age | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

There are around 160 million workers in the US alone, and most companys’ largest expense is payroll. In fact in most businesses payroll is 40% or more of total revenue, meaning that total US payroll expense is many billions of dollars.

How well do organizations truly understand what drives performance among their workforce? The answer: not really very well. Do we know why one sales person outperforms his peers? Do we understand why certain leaders thrive and others flame out? Can we accurately predict whether a candidate will really perform well in our organization?

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

A great article on the use of BigData in HR. Data definately tells us that we may have been looking at the wrong things in relation to a number of HR practices. Take a look at a good example of recruiting sales people.

2 Ways To Become Indispensable At Work

2 Ways To Become Indispensable At Work | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

If you said “no” to any of the above, you’re probably not indispensable to your employer. But you should strive to be, says Chris Gaborit, managing director and cofounder of The Learning Factor, in a recent LinkedIn post.

 

In the post, Gaborit offers keys to becoming indispensable at work.

 

“I decided to get some wisdom from people I respect,” he says. “I asked some of our best clients — senior managers who work for global companies. These people have walked the walk; they have been bulletproof when it comes to restructuring.”

 

Here are two ways to become indispensable at work:

Does your company value you? Do you think you’d survive multiple rounds of layoffs? Would your employer miss you if you were to leave?

Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, April 15, 12:03 PM

The title of the post of Chris Gaborit is very suggestive "five keys to becoming an indispensable at work" frankly I think that no employee may become necessary but increase the likelihood that in times of crisis and organizational restructuring is one of the employees that the company wants to retain an employee who has also developed specific expertise of their work, the skills to be kept longer in a company that knows increase their employability. For these five tips Gaborit seem very important:

 

Hold the mindset that change provides opportunity.Do not overfocus on the next job position but rather on the skills to be developed.Building relationships with key decision makers.Exhibit the ability to get ‘stuff’ done.Treat everyone with genuine respect

Shifting Through 2 Million Résumés


It's no secret the company is incredibly choosy with who it picks to become "Googlers." Bock says the company gets more than 2 million applications every year, a flood of correspondence that also includes the occasional oddity.


He got the job, in addition to something rare: an extraordinary perch from which to watch and eventually exert some influence over how a fast-moving web company with plenty of money to spend and people to study conducts itself and maintains its idiosyncratic culture.

Senior Vice President at MGM Resorts Gives 3 Life-changing Ways to use Feedback

Senior Vice President at MGM Resorts Gives 3 Life-changing Ways to use Feedback | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

We learned how to give feedback. One important step this team took to improve its performance was to create a sort of social contract. They agreed to a number of behaviors they wanted to hold themselves accountable for. The team started practicing a "scoring" technique to track how well they practiced the behaviors individually, and learned how to give feedback to explain their scores for each other.


Teams like Litster's often include a number of common elements in their "operating agreements." Some items might include avoiding blame, looking for the root cause of a problem, communicating messages even when they're hard to say, and receiving messages without defensiveness even when they're hard to hear.
