HR; Meet Wall Street
March 22, 2009
From the Department of Scary Quotes
Just by chance I read two articles the same day.
The first at portfolio.com outlined the quantitative modellers or quants that built the mathematical models that, in their words;
…That Killed Wall Street
The second, a BusinessWeek article by Stephen Baker titled; Data Mining Moves to Human Resources (emphasis mine)
….For executives to calculate the return on investment of each worker, their human resources departments are starting to open their doors to the quants.
I guess that means we will be rightsized, downsized, or RIF’d by the same mathematical quants that brought us Lehman, Bear Sterns and AIG.
Make you feel warm and squishy inside doesn’t it?
