Our Director, Professor Vania Sena, will be speaking in the third seminar of this ESRC series. She will be discussing ‘Big Data in the context of research on wages and related gender gaps’. The seminar series aims to critically explore the possibilities of Big Data in assessing health and well-being risks within organisation and for advancing knowledge on health and well-being prediction.
This seminar will also explore the different types of digital data that employers currently collect and how they make use of them. It will also examine how digital data can be mined to find indicators that may be effective in signalling employee health. In addition it will discuss key technical solutions and techniques, and data governance structures and processes.
This seminar will also include the following topics:
Big Data: Big opportunities and big problems
Using big data in practice: Computational infrastructures
Collating and analysing employee data to understand employee well-being – What can we learn from organisations?
