NEW YORK, April 2, 2013

NEW YORK, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --There's a battle going on right now,
as companies compete to attract and retain top talent. Among the most potent
weapons a human resources manager can wield is applying data analytics to
talent management. On Thursday, April 18, 2013, the Polytechnic Institute of
New York University (NYU-Poly) will host a free half-day conference exploring
advances in talent management and offering advice on data-driven practices
that can benefit organizations of any size.

Attendees will join internationally recognized consultants and executives from
such firms as Accenture, Google, JetBlue, Morgan Stanley, PepsiCo and SAS as
they discuss how they employ information technology and workforce analytics to
monitor their companies' overall performance, track employee satisfaction,
manage their staffing needs and encourage worker engagement. These companies
have realized that relying on traditional HR practices – which focus on risk
avoidance, legal compliance and what have been called "hunch-based" decisions
– is no longer sufficient in an increasingly data-driven age.

"Talent management is undergoing fundamental advances that employ information
technology, workforce analytics, economics, as well as organization science
principles," said conference organizer Harold G. Kaufman, professor of
management and academic director of the Organizational Behavior Program in
NYU-Poly's Department of Technology Management and Innovation. "We designed
Talent Management 2.0 to engage HR and IT practitioners, including executives,
managers and entrepreneurs as well as academics and students – in short,
everyone seeking new strategies and tactics in the 'War for Talent.' "

Talent Management 2.0: HR Innovation in the Big Data Era will offer
opportunities to:

  onetwork with leaders in this emerging field;
  ovisit cutting-edge human resource technology vendors to see their latest
  omeet recruiters seeking to fill openings for information technology and HR
  oand earn recertification credits from the HR Certification Institute
    (HRCI) and the International Association of Human Resource Information
    Management (IHRIM).

The conference is hosted by the NYU-Poly Department of Technology Management &
Innovation, in cooperation with Poly SHRM, the NYU-Poly student chapter of the
Society for Human Resource Management, as well as International Association
for Human Resource Information Management (IHRIM). Talent Management 2.0: HR
Innovation in the Big Data Era receives additional support from HITS

The conference will be held from noon to 8:30 p.m. at 5 MetroTech Center, in
Brooklyn. Registration is required at http://talentmanagement2.eventbrite.com.
