The Only Fields That Matter - Understanding the Software-Selected Workforce
The Only Fields That Matter is exposing bio-profiling in the place we would least expect: the hiring process. Here is one American worker's experience beginning in 2008 that he joins in with millions of people entering or re-entering the labor market. Only, this time, after this recession, behavioral assessment and the brain are all the rage. This isn't a career self-help book. Robert Waters takes you right into his career loss, his family issues, financial consequences, American value changes, big Tech and ethical issues regarding loss of privacy - and weaves his stories through our shared experiences.
He did not anticipate finding a new hiring culture which he defines, the "version3 workforce", applying psychology + neuroscience + genomics.
US businesses are driving a software-selected workforce
Mr. Waters explains very personally how securing employment now requires facing invasive predictive software to assess our thoughts, social media participation, emotional intelligence, innovative traits, new behavioral psychometrics and more. In the end he discusses why and how DNA, the final human data, will integrate electronic health records with employers' records.
The Only Fields That Matter Come along for the journey! Beyond the dull drone of recessionary statistics, in places without paths nor human voices, a future was beginning to unfold: in the only fields that matter.
