Despite its promise and value to the talent acquisition function, Big Data often contains a great deal of bogus data and bad data. Meanwhile, commonly used methods to scrape data from social media and public sources often fail to deliver meaningful insights to optimize the hiring process. The challenge for many employers lies in identifying the data, scientific methods and analytic techniques that can truly elevate their hiring activities.

During this webinar, Joseph P. Murphy, executive vice president and co-founder of Shaker, will explain how talent acquisition practitioners can overcome the challenges presented by Big Data and be smarter with small data, relevant data and retrievable data. He will also show how they can leverage the power of selection science and industrial-organizational psychology to improve their candidate evaluation processes. Attendees will learn how to deploy rigorous talent evaluation methods such as predictive analytics to gauge new hire success. The economic benefits from hiring decisions supported by actively collected, intentionally defined candidate data will be explored. Additionally, participants will gain an understanding of how selection science can be used in their organizations to bring the best value and how they can define and report on quality of hire.

Talent acquisition professionals interested in learning how they can measure, analyze and improve their hire power are encourage to attend this complimentary presentation. To register, visit:
