I’m Presenting at SIOP’s Leading Edge Consortium on Big Data Talent Analytics!
This year’s Leading Edge Consortium is on Talent Analytics, with a focus on Big Data and data science. If you haven’t heard of the LEC, it’s SIOP’s specialty conference intended to train practicing I/O psychologists on bleeding edge practice and science for solving real, current problems. Each year has a different theme, depending upon precisely what SIOP believes to be at the bleeding edge that year. 2014’s conference was on Succession Strategies, whereas 2015’s was on High Performance Organizations.
THis topic is near and dear to both my researcher and practitioner heart. It is officially titled: Talent Analytics: Data Science to Drive People Decisions and Business Impact. It is being held October 21 and 22, 2016, in the home of Turner Field, Coca-Cola, and a beautiful airport: Atlanta, Georgia.
If you can’t tell from the meeting title, the idea is to share the newest of the new in talent analytics, the stuff that our journals haven’t even been able to publish yet, the stuff that’s being used in the highest performing I/O teams in the country. There’s quite the all-star cast for me to stand aside, which is great, since a benefit of presenting is that I get to attend the conference!
