Coresignal Sponsors UC Hastings Center for Business Law in Bid to Demonstrate Alternative Data’s Value for Research

Coresignal is pleased to announce a sponsorship deal with UC Hastings Center for Business Law to assist its research efforts with alternative datasets. The study will analyze the effect of company financial distress and bankruptcy on its workforce. The study is the first in the field of business law to use public web data which enables extracting deep insights into company and workforce dynamics.
With access to Coresignal’s datasets, specifically, public resume, firmographic, job postings data, and company employee reviews, UC Hastings Center for Business Law will study how bankruptcy filings and financial distress impact the workforce and potentially hinders recruitment efforts.
“It is our pleasure to announce a sponsorship deal with UC Hastings Center for Business Law, as they have a stellar reputation for conducting high-quality research. We hope it will demonstrate the utility that alternative data offers in research contexts, and we continue to look for new sponsorship opportunities in line with our company values.” – Jeremy Ward, CMO at Coresignal.
The methodology and goals of the study are based on the current tropes surrounding large company bankruptcy. The UC Hastings Center for Business Law will examine companies with the following criteria: companies with publicly traded bond or loan debt, chapter 11 filings, and $500 million (USD) plus in assets or liabilities. The study is also focusing on the relationship between large companies and their current, past, and prospective employees’ satisfaction.
The study is carried out under the direction of Professor and Director of the UC Hastings Center for Business Law, Jared Ellias, who commented: “There are lots of social science questions that used to be very challenging for researchers to tackle. Yet today, many people provide various types of information online. Thanks to aggregated public web data, we can learn more and try to answer questions that were formerly out of reach. After working extensively with Coresignal’s data, I’ve found it to be very intelligently put together, and I think Coresignal does excellent work.”
