[8-31]软件所青年联合会第43期活动－ People Analytics: Prospects and Opportunities
报告人：Prof. Hui Xiong
The big data trend has made its way to talent management. Indeed, the availability of large-scale human resources (HR) data provide unparalleled opportunities for business leaders to understand talent behaviors and generate useful talent knowledge, which in turn deliver intelligence for real-time decision making and effective people management at work. In this talk, I will introduce the state-of-the-art techniques used to evaluate the management performance, recruit and retain great people, enhance talent development, and demonstrate how these techniques are used at cutting-edge companies. In particular, I will explain how data analytic techniques can be used on people-related issues, such as recruiting, performance evaluation, talent retention, talent development, job matching, team management, and organizational stability analysis. Finally, I will present two case studies: 1) recruitment market trend analysis with sequential latent variable models, and 2) talent circle detection in job transition networks.
