The 1st International Workshop on
Organizational Behavior and Talent Analytics
Held in conjunction with KDD'18
August 20, 2018 - London, United Kingdom


In today’s competitive and fast-evolving business environment, it is a critical time for organizations to rethink how to make talent-related decisions in a quantitative manner. Indeed, the recent big data trend has made its way to talent management. The availability of large-scale talent data provides unparalleled opportunities for business leaders to understand the talent behaviors and gain tangible knowledge, which in turn deliver intelligence for real-time decision making and effective talent management at work for their organizations. In the past few years, Organizational Behavior and Talent Analytics have increasingly attracted attentions from KDD communities, and a number of research/applied data science efforts have been devoted. To this end, the purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss both the critical problems faced by Organizational Behavior and Talent Analytics related domains, and potential data-driven solutions by leveraging state-of-the-art data mining technologies.
