Algorithms, also known as segmentation tools, can bring sophistication and precision to recruiting, but they also add complexity and cost. How can these tools be used most effectively in qualitative research projects? 

In this webinar, we’ll discuss trends in the use of algorithms in qualitative recruiting. We’ll look at benefits and limitations of these tools, and key considerations for marketers, recruiters and of course, qualitative researchers.   

Hear from our panelists about the types of questions to ask when a project involves recruiting with an algorithm, key 'watchouts,’ and ways to ensure that projects with segmentation tools are successful from the get-go. Come away with practical insights about how algorithms are created, how they're used, and how they can favorably impact the business value of your research projects.
