Imagine if you stopped worrying about "big data" and "predictive analytics" and started to think about how to make the most of what you've got in your archives. The possibilities are limitless. And the crushing onslaught of HR data can be managed with a little time, attention and patience.
As an educator, I face a number of challenges when prepping the next generation of talent advisors. The latest and greatest in HR is usually not at the forefront of HR education. If the HR leaders of tomorrow need to be prepared to discuss “big data” or “predictive analytics,” a number of challenges need to be overcome.

As a dedicated staffing industry professional, you may have set goals for 2015 — but have you considered how some of the recent developments within the industry may affect them?

More than half (53 percent) of support staff workers in the U.S. — including administrative assistants, receptionists, security guards, janitors and more — have overheard private conversations in the workplace, while more than 1 in 10 (11 percent) say they know enough to get someone fired, according to a new CareerBuilder study.
