About the Conference

The Conferences on Human Capital Innovation in Technology & Analytics have been organized annually since 2012 by the Department of Technology Management and Innovation at NYU Tandon School of Engineering.  Each year these Conferences focus on a different critical issue, bringing together prominent thought leaders and experts who are at the cutting-edge of Human Capital Analytics (HCA) and related technologies.

This year’s critical issue is “Career Matching & Tracking Analytics: New Frontiers in Driving Talent Management.” Leading firms are revising their approaches to career matching and tracking, which are central in creating effective talent management systems to recruit, develop and retain hard-to- replace high performers and knowledge workers. Effective matching and tracking of top talent can play a critical role in an organization’s achieving its human capital strategic goals in the face of intense competition for the best performers. In recognition of this challenge, firms are focusing on innovative research in human capital analytics to improve career matching and tracking that can promote individual as well as organizational success.

This conference brings together thought leaders and experts from industry and academia to discuss new analytic approaches to career matching and tracking for driving the various facets of talent management. The conference will be attended by executives, managers and professionals, who range from human capital analytics experts to HR generalists, as well as faculty and students from various disciplines. This is a valuable opportunity to network with leaders in this emerging field and learn about how cutting-edge career matching and tracking analytics can help win the “War for Talent.”

This Conference is presented in cooperation with Poly-SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management student chapter) and IHRIM (International Association of Human Resource Information Management).
