There’s a spectrum of concerns related to the privacy of employee data: At one end of the continuum, employers may have basic questions about whether it’s OK to send employee data across national borders to produce a holistic view of the company-wide workforce. Thankfully, there are clear guidelines for how to do this without running afoul of the data privacy laws. At the other end of the spectrum, however, are a host of new issues that companies will need to think about: 1. The growing use of social media creates massive amounts of new, employee-related data—both personal and professional —and raises questions about appropriate use by employers. 2. The emergence of “big data” will transform many aspects of business and competitive strategy. What might “big” HR data look like? How could it be used? 3. As more and more computing shifts to the cloud, internal IT staffs may shrink accordingly. Can companies count on external safeguards to protect the privacy of their employee data, or does cloud computing pose greater risks?

In this webcast, we’ll discuss the spectrum of employee data privacy issues, from the familiar to the far-out. Hear four leading experts in human capital data, analytics and strategic workforce planning share their perspectives on what you should worry about—and not.
