More than ever before, employers are using Big Data -- the use of algorithms, "data scraping," and other means of evaluating data-driven information about an individual -- to make hiring and other employment decisions.  This growing trend encompasses a wide-range of applications and uses and has permeated employers large and small.  The use and scope of Big Data to guide organizational decision-making is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years.  The process has captured the attention of the EEOC which recently conducted a hearing on the topic and included “the increasing use of data-driven selection devices” in its 2017 Strategic Enforcement Plan.  Please join Seyfarth Shaw and our panel of distinguished speakers who will share unique insights and strategies regarding this emerging field.

Topics will include:

  • What is Big Data?
  • What aspects of Big Data are relevant to employers for human capital management?
  • What are the benefits of using Big Data to make employment decisions?
  • What are the risks of using Big Data to make employment decisions?
  • What are the best practices when relying on Big Data in the workplace?
