Issue #234 published 4 Apr 2021
The shift to remote is an inadvertent digitisation of previously analogue processes, and it will be prove to be a boon to the emerging discipline of People Analytics. When does it go too far though? Microsoft 365 productivity scoring dashboard was met with this outstanding tweet thread from Wolf Christie and likely triggered its hasty modification. People analytics or surveillance tech? Might well come down to who is looking at the dashboard.
Issue #220 published 27 Dec 2020
The shift to virtual working has produced a data boom that could revolutionise organisations – if they know what to do with it.
One of the under rated and under reported aspects of the shift to remote is the digitisation of businesses processes which were previously analogue. This means a data boom with risk and opportunity in equal measure. ‘Recruitment meta data’ is going to be a thing in 2021 folks. Have a read
Issue #219 published 20 Dec 2020
Nothing revelatory in this report from Cardiff University / Data Justice Lab, but it does a rigorous job of outlining where in the recruiting process that data is being collected, and how it is or might be used. Accessible reading on a phenomena accelerated by remote - the digitisation and therefore datafication of the workplace.
Issue #217 published 6 Dec 2020
At what point does people analytics segue into bossware for workplace surveillance? Some interesting features rolled out in Microsoft Office 365 which has come under criticism from the twitterati for precisely this issue. Wolfie Christie twitter thread for the technical breakdown, Gizmodo article for a consumer friendly critique.
Going against the grain: I’m kind of ok with this. What do you think?
Issue #216 published 29 Nov 2020
File this post under ‘didn’t know, afraid to ask’ - an excellent overview of the difference between two terms which are often conflated. Kind of a must read I think
Issue #209 published 11 Oct 2020
At what point does people analytics become employee surveillance? Remote working digitises the remaining analogue elements of employee collaboration, leading to greater data driven decision making - and at the very same type - contravention of worker privacy. This story is going to run and run folks.
Issue #205 published 13 Sep 2020
A call to action from brainfooder Toby Culshaw on the importance of Talent Intelligence for our strategic repositioning within the business. Message is clear: talent acquisition has to expand scope beyond talent acquisition, and being smart with data will be one way to do it.
Issue #202 published 23 Aug 2020
A thread about a Talent Acquisition Maturity Model in the fb group, got me to think about what other maturity models we can find that have been applied to different aspects of our work? This one, about People Analytics, is a pretty good example of why they might be valuable tool. Now is as good a time as any to conduct an assessment, so have at it here
Issue #195 published 5 Jul 2020
We’ve conflated data with truth. And this has dangerous implications for our ability to understand, explain, and improve the things we care about.
Essential read from Andrea Jones-Rooy, Professor of Data Science at NYU. Perfect antidote to online arguments where your interlocutor goes ‘where’s the data on that?’
Issue #158 published 23 Apr 2020
More stuff from the US military, and as you might expect, it is both impressive and worrisome in equal measure. A new AI-enabled pilot project aims to sense “micro changes” in the behaviour of people with top-secret clearances. If it works, it could be the future…
Issue #156 published 23 Apr 2020
J'accuse recruiters / HR people of pretending to know more about data than they really do. I’m guilty of this, so reading this respectful post by Cassie Kozyrkov was a godsend. You should read this if you don’t know the difference between analytics and statistics; it’s ultra urgent you read it if you think you do.
Issue #156 published 23 Apr 2020
This article has nothing whatsoever to do with Covid-19. But it is perhaps the single best essay I’ve read on people analytics - with the why & how dealt with in a way which stretches your understanding but accessible enough for most of us here.
Issue #182 published 23 Apr 2020
Accessible deconstruction of a critically important topic in HR by Panalyt’s Abdel-rahmen Korichi. This step-by-step guide is an ideal entry point for people wanting to take the next step with People Analytics - if you’re not familiar with it, take a read now. Also a fine example of how to write vendor side content ;-)
