Big Data Executive to Share Insights with the Bay Area HR Executives Council
San Ramon, CA — June 11, 2013 — The Bay Area Human Resource Executives Council (BAHREC), an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management, has selected David Bernstein to participate in a panel on HR analytics at its HR and Innovation in Silicon Valley conference on June 13. The event will take place at the Nokia California Headquarters in Sunnyvale, California from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The conference is designed as a gathering of innovative thought leaders who are changing the way HR professionals work, collaborate and think. Mr. Berstein will lend his thought leadership to the afternoon panel, “People Analytics: Doing HR by the Numbers and Finding the Meaningful Data.”
Bernstein is the head of eQuest’s new Big Data for HR/Predictive Analytics Division, which enables organizations to make evidence-based decisions about their recruiting and hiring strategy. He is responsible for developing consulting services and custom business solutions that leverage eQuest’s Big Data. He writes and speaks regularly on how data analytics can predict future behavioral patterns of candidates and create a competitive advantage in candidate sourcing. Prior to joining eQuest, Bernstein has had a long history of creating innovative HR strategies for Fortune 500 companies. His background includes pioneering HR technology roles at PeopleSoft, start-up company leadership defining Internet-based HR solutions, and building HR technology platforms for global companies such as Solectron and Hitachi.
“Analytics, applied correctly, give us the ability to ask questions we couldn’t ask before and find answers that challenge long-held assumptions about our workforce,” Bernstein said. “However, there’s still uncertainty and debate about what data to look at, and how to achieve meaningful insights. I look forward to engaging discussion on this critical topic, both during the panel and throughout the event.”
