12:30 P.M. — July 19Rethinking Analytics for Talent Acquisition
Keeping with the theme of TA Week, Utilize Innovative Strategies Tools and Technology to Reimagine Talent Acquisition, in this session, we will spend time rethinking and reimagining analytics for talent acquisition. We will first quickly acquaint ourselves with Artificial Intelligence and its increasing relevance in Human Resources and Workforce Development. We will then spend some time examining the challenges associated with using AI for People Analytics and Research, particularly delving into some examples where AI has perpetuated bias. We will then reimagine TA contexts by approaching them through a Mixed Methods lens to problem-solving, while critically examining the limitations of singular methods or narratives. In this talk, we will also deliberate on the need for learning agility among TA professionals and strategize how some of us can prioritize lifelong learning and contribute the most to our field. Bring your thinking hats and your questions!
