Information, particularly data, empowers us to make better and more informed decisions — as long as the data is recent, relevant, relatable and accurate. How can big data be used in human resources to improve hiring strategies, recruiting spending, or employee development programs? That’s the question we are asking today.

EPISODE 48: USING BIG DATA IN HUMAN RESOURCES & RECRUITING WITH BRYAN WEMPEN (@BRYANWEMPEN)

Bryan Wempen stops by the Workology Podcast to discuss his new book(s), the topic of big data, and how it’s improving the employee experience and the hiring process. Bryan’s new book features a number of experts from both inside and outside of the human resource industry. I was extremely intrigued by how Bryan researched his book  — using a podcast format where he interviewed them prior to writing. Creative, I like it!

Hiring Trends in Big Data

Bryan discusses the different types of data that HR can use in their data capture process, how that works, and how, technically, HR data isn’t really big data. I was particularly intrigued how Bryan discusses data itself, how it relates to the assessment space and how his new company, Mobi Screenr is taking a mobile first approach to assessments for hiring and selection screening. His assessments are quick, accessible and also mobile friendly. And, as we know, mobile is a big hiring trend whether we’re talking about career sites, employment branding, or mobile apply. What I love most about his newest venture is that his mobile assessment product is accurate, and that candidates complete the assessment in the time it takes to watch an average music video on YouTube.

What is the ‘New HR’? What skills and experiences will future HR professionals need to have to propel their organizations forward going beyond hiring trends? Many of these skills are are strategic not administrative competencies. Bryan shares insights into how HR professionals can prepare for the ‘New HR’ role today.
