Wearable Technology & People Analytics | #HRTea

The next episode of #HRTea is now live on iTunes and Google Play! This episode will dive into the topic of people analytics. In this episode, Bethany sat down with Ben Waber, who literally wrote the book on People Analytics. Ben is President and CEO of Humanyze, a behavioral analytics company that uses real time data flow to help organizations make decisions about management strategies, work spaces, training, and so much more. The work that Ben and Humanyze are doing in people analytics is changing how organizations think about quantifying human connection. We talk sensor data, wearable technology, privacy issues, and Ben shares some insights for HR students thinking about working in this field in the future.
