Course Description

Time 60 minutes
Difficulty Intermediate

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.

Join Eric J. Felsberg, Principal and National Director of JL Data Analytics at Jackson Lewis P.C., the national management-side labor and employment law firm, to remove the mystery around analytics, discuss the benefits and pitfalls of analytics use, review several case studies, and learn best practice tips for leveraging workplace analytics and deploying a workplace analytics program. 


Learning Objectives: 
  1. Identify current uses and future developments in workplace analytics
  2. Review the considerations when leveraging workplace analytics, including the benefits of saving resources, the pitfalls of disparate treatment and impacts, and the role of attorney-client privilege
  3. Understand how to responsibly leverage data and inform workplace decision-making around hiring, retention, and pay scales
  4. Review select case studies and assess the government perspective on workplace analytics use
