2014: The Year of Predictive Talent Analytics

As we hurtle towards 2014 at breakneck speed, we wanted to share with you what we’ve been up to – and why we’re over-the-moon excited for the new year.

Talent Analytics® Goes Predictive 

2014 marks the second year we will present our ground-breaking work at Predictive Analytics World in multiple conferences across North America. We are excited to continue driving the conversation in the predictive analytics community around combining performance and people analytics to optimize organizational performance.

Pasha Roberts, Talent Analytics’ Chief Scientist, says, “Companies are waking up to the novel idea that people are connected with performance, and that data science can be applied to problems like performance optimization. Talent Analytics continues to lead the charge in this battle. I look forward to speaking at PAW next year about employee attrition – a multifaceted, complicated, and expensive issue in which we have proven results.” Read the full Press Release.

Will 2014 Be the Year of Talent Analytics at Predictive Events?

Deepti Singh, Director of Talent & Learning, American Savings Bank, notes that “global businesses spend more than a trillion dollars on payroll alone. 2014 is the year predictive analytics professionals need to seriously focus on optimizing this investment. 2014 is the year of HR and talent analytics!”

Do you agree? Is 2014 the year Talent Analytics becomes a track at predictive analytics conferences?
