Managing the Workplace Using Data Analytics: What Today's Workplace Lawyer Needs to Know


Created on May 25, 2017




The use of analytics is booming, and the average person encounters analytics in action every day. From the advertisements you see while browsing the internet, to the rate quotes you receive from your health insurer, analytics plays a role. Unsurprisingly, employers have also begun using analytics to manage the workplace. Examples include predictions about which employees are most likely to leave the organization, which applicants will be the best employees, and the use of employee data to set pay. But some observers, including government agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Federal Trade Commission, and the White House, have expressed concern about the use of analytics and its potential to exclude segments of the population from employment and other opportunities.
