The Quantified Workplace: Despite the Hype, Not All That Useful Yet — The Atlantic

Five or six years ago, companies realized that they were sitting on a wealth of data about their own employees. “People started to realize, ‘Wait a minute, there’s a lot of data in here that we’re not using. Some of it is wrong. It’s not very clean,'” says Josh Bersin, the founder of Bersin by Deloitte, an HR research and advisory arm of Deloitte. “But if we look at it like we look at customer data, we could probably make much better decisions about who to promote, where they should be in the company, what role they would be successful at.'”

Since then, the people-analytics industry has emerged, with companies using algorithms and Big Data to recruit and assess employees. One report from McKinsey Global Institute estimated that social technologies, such as internal networking tools, can boost not only employee happiness, but also productivity by up to 25 percent.
