Unleash Your Data Insights Having people data is one thing, but the ability to break this data into clear, comprehensible, and actionable insights that are easy to access and discoverable to leaders across the business is where the untapped value lies.

“When organizations take advantage of workforce data to inform their people decisions, research has proven that they outperform those that don’t.”

From “The Economic Impact of Visier People to European Organizations” whitepaper

When organizations take advantage of people analytics to inform their people decisions, it’s proven that they outperform organizations that aren’t doing so. The adoption of people analytics links to better workforce data for decision-making and from there, to higher employee engagement, higher employee productivity, and improved talent management.

The problem for people leaders, is what to do with, and how to manage, the sheer scale of data they have now.

For example, in their 2020/2021 HR Systems Survey, Sapient Insights Group cites that on average organizations are using 10.3 applications to collect and manage people data. And that’s hardly surprising, with the explosion of capabilities in collecting data on your people and the technologies available to collect this information.

But, how do you break things down and make your people data comprehensible, easy to access, and discoverable in a single ecosystem of insights?
