AmazingHiring at #hruNewYork

AmazingHiring attended the #hruNewYork – People Analytics, which was held in the E&Y’s

office in New York on March 30. This visit continued the tradition of attending a series of

GlobalHRU anti-conferences.

As an introduction, it is worth mentioning a few words about the #hru format (for those who

have not yet participated in the GlobalHRU events): there are no badges or dress code

here. The emphasis is put on the exchange of experiences and ideas: discussions, analysis

of real-world case studies, answers to questions, and an extremely active audience, where

everyone is involved in the conversation, and a moderator only directs the course of

discussion.

This time, the conversation was about People Analytics — a rapidly growing segment of

business analytics focused on Data-driven decisions in HR.

The participants shared their experiences in analytical tools to collect, aggregate and

interpret information; presented the HR Tech startups that could help address these tasks:

Emplo, TalentBrowser, Joberate, Day100, and AmazingHiring. The residents of the Talent

Tech Labs business incubator also participated in the event. This incubator focuses on the

technological developments in HR and Talent Acquisition.

The discussion moderators included: Simon Heaton (Global Talent Management Director,

Barclays), Anthony Onesto (Vice President, Razorfish), Justin Shemeley (Global People

Analytics Leader, EY), Steve West (Director, SVP, Human Resources, Citigroup), Daniel

Joseph (Director Workforce Planning & Talent Acquisition, Nice-Pak Products, Inc.), Audrey

Bilsborrow (Vice President of Global Sales, Joberate), Ward Christman (Founder & Chief

Advisor, HRTechAdvisor), Jan Antoniewicz (Business Development Manager, emplo.com),

Ellen Glazerman (Executive Director, Ernst & Young Foundation), Aki Kakko (Co-founder,

Joberate), Taras Polischuk (HR Technology Entrepreneur, Investor and Evangelist), Stuart

Agtsteribbe (Global HR Technology Strategist – Head of Client Relationship, hiQ Labs), Ilya

Breyman (Co-founder, Coursalytics), John Ricciardi (Vice President, Talent Solutions, ERE

Media, Inc), Steve Levy (Principal: Recruiting, Talent, and Social Media Consultant,

Recruiting Inferno Consulting).

The discussion on People Analytics is now more relevant than ever — 63% of CEOs

already recognize the importance of analytics (hiQ Labs), while only 19% of companies are

currently engaged in HR data analytics (this is mainly operational reporting), and 52%

intend to introduce People Analytics in the next 18 months (ERE Media).

Other discussions were on the Data Consumerism and the basic principles of perception

and data interpretation risks (Recruiting Inferno Consulting), on the tools for employee

behavior analysis (Joberate), on the diversified teams and the role of women (hiQ Labs),

and on how companies are moving away from Performance Review and are currently

thinking of how to assess the performance of employees in real time (project SWAN –

Razorfish).

We have already written plenty about the fact that if you want to find a strong developer, usual sourcing resources are not very helpful: top developers do not search actively for new jobs and do not use regular job boards or on LinkedIn.

Yet, new emerging online gathering places for tech talent are noteworthy for sourcing practitioners out there. Over the last years, Telegram has […]
