L'analyse des grandes quantités de données - le Big Data - est appelée à révolutionner bien des domaines. L'emploi et les ressources humaines pourraient même devenir l'un de ses premiers terrains d'application. Bien sûr, rappelle Steve Lohr dans Bits, le blog techno du New York Times, "la science de la force de travail" - comme on commence à l'appeler - n'est pas nouvelle. Le management "scientifique" et la mesure statistique de l'efficacité du travail ou du recrutement ont déjà connu bien des méthodes... (et pas que des succès) : "Ce qui est différent aujourd'hui", explique Mitchell Hoffman, économiste et chercheur à l'école de Management de Yale, "est le montant et le détail des données sur les travailleurs qui sont recueillies".

Big Data, Trying to Build Better Workers
John-Patrick Thomas I wrote a Sunday column about the rise of what is being called “work force science.” Lots of companies are embracing the trend, but anyone familiar with business history might reasonably ask, What’s really new here? Certainly, the current enthusiasm for worker measurement and trait testing has its echoes in the past. Frederick Winslow Taylor’s time-and-motion studies of physical labor, like bricklaying and shoveling coal, became the “scientific management” of a century ago. And for decades, major American corporations employed industrial psychologists and routinely gave job candidates personality and intelligence tests.

Peter Cappelli - Management Department AbstractClose The notion of regular, full-time employment as one of the defining features of the U.S. economy has been called into question in recent years by the apparent growth of alternative or “nonstandard” arrangements – part-time work, temporary help, independent contracting, and other arrangements. Identifying the extent of these arrangements, whether they are increasing, and where they occur is the first step for understanding their implications for the economy and the society. But this has been difficult to do because of the lack of appropriate data. We present estimates of the extent of these practices based on a national probability sample of U.S. establishments, evidence on changes in their use over time, and analyses that help us begin to understand why they are used.
