Big data, talent analytics, algorithms and predictive modeling have changed the way talent acquisition operates. As a result, today's recruiters must be armed with evidence-based methods for capturing, analyzing and interpreting applicant data in order to optimize the hiring of top talent.

During this webinar, Joseph P. Murphy, vice president and co-founder of Shaker, will help attendees come up to speed on current best practices for using talent analytics to support hiring decisions. Providing a foundation for making informed decisions and prioritizing actions using data, Murphy will present examples that demonstrate how predictive modeling has documented ROI from improved time to hire, to reduced turnover and accelerated time to proficiency. In addition, Murphy will illustrate the value of structure versus random data and explain effective methods for gathering quality-of-hire metrics as well as evaluating the effectiveness of hiring practices. Session attendees will learn how predictive modeling is changing the speed, costs and effectiveness of talent acquisition practices and what priorities their organizations need to take to optimize their decision-making strategy.

Attendees will receive a downloadable document prior to the webinar that will allow registrants to complete a brief audit of their existing practices against a talent analytics maturity model. Business leaders, recruiters, hiring managers and HR professionals interested in improving quality of hire at their organization are encouraged to attend this complimentary presentation.
