I’m hesitant when it comes to using the phrase “big data." I think it’s overused and confuses people. Which when it comes to HR and data, isn’t hard.

There is no doubt that big data is transforming the way in which we look at the business. I’m just not sure that HR holds enough complex data sets to be truly big.

We're months away from Thanksgiving, but we couldn't wait to tell you what we're thankful for this year: CareerBuilder's LinkedIn page for employers recently garnered more than 1,000 followers, and our community of professionals continues to expand rapidly.

A recent CareerBuilder study predicts that temporary employment will continue on an upward trajectory as it has been since the end of the recession. While companies across the U.S. are employing this hiring strategy to allow for staffing flexibility, some metro areas have a greater volume of temporary jobs than others.

Chris Powell is the CEO of BlackbookHR, a software company on a mission to create more engaged and connected workplaces and communities. He previously served as executive vice president of human resources for Scripps Networks Interactive (HGTV, DIY, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel, et al.), as vice president of human resources for the global financial services company ING, and in various corporate HR roles at Marriott International.

As Big Data becomes more prevalent in the business world, and this is the time of year when everyone’s suddenly a data analytics expert. Tax season? No – March Madness.

HR professionals have access to more data than ever, but what good is all that data if you don’t know how to properly use it? Matthew Stollak — associate professor of business administration at St. Norbert College — hosted a webinar this week to help HR professionals understand why the ability to read and analyze data is becoming an essential skill in their industry, and one that few actually possess.

Research suggests that companies with a diverse workforce perform better than companies with less diversity. In particular, companies with a higher representation of women on their boards see a higher return on equity, sales and invested capital than compani

Can we be honest with each other for a minute? There are only something like 500 talent acquisition leaders in the entire world who actually get what "big data" is — and you’re not one of them.

It’s okay. I’m not one of them, either.

Nearly half (46 percent) of employers reported that they plan to hire temporary or contract workers this year, an increase of 4 percentage points over last year, according to a new CareerBuilder study.

I'm a big believer in breaking stereotypes and reclaiming HR. That's why I am excited to introduce you to Marc Farrugia, Vice President, Human Resources at Sun Communities — the leading provider of manufactured home communities and RV resorts.
