Leadership Roundtable on Talent Analytics and Workforce Science

Thursday, October 23-Friday, October 24, 2014

The Workforce Science Project of Northwestern University School of Law’s Searle Center on Law, Regulation, and Economic Growth will hold a roundtable to discuss advanced issues in the analysis of talent and the workforce. This will be a small invitation-only event that will include analysts in leadership positions in firms with an established Talent Analytics practice, as well as academics with expertise in this area.

The roundtable will focus on topics at the more advanced end of the analytics spectrum. Because these are emerging issues, the roundtable will emphasize discussion and interactive knowledge exchange over formal presentations.
