Is GDPR the Death Knell for Human Capital Analytics?
September 2018 | Research Report
In a post-GDPR world where data privacy is a growing concern, companies must earn the trust of employees, job applicants, and contingent workers if they want to continue analyzing human capital data to generate business insights. Companies need to demonstrate how they manage and protect personal data to ensure that individuals won’t be adversely affected. Only by building trust can HCA continue to leverage the growing amounts of data about workers and workplace trends. HCA leaders, therefore, should focus on stewardship and not just the science of big data, algorithms, and analytics.
