Product Update: Risk Management related to leadership succession, employment legislation, and workforce diversity is front and center

Visier’s SUMMER 2016 product release delivers unmatched insights into workforce risks

VANCOUVER, BC and SAN JOSE, CAVisier, the leader in Workforce Intelligence, today announced the SUMMER 2016 release of Visier Workforce Analytics and Visier Workforce Planning, which features a deep dive into corporate risk management analytics. With Visier, organizations can answer critical risk questions such as:

  • Is the leadership succession pipeline deep enough to withstand unanticipated departures?
  • How will new legislation—like the Department of Labor’s recently revised overtime regulations—impact the business?
  • Do the organization’s current workforce policies and talent acquisition programs harbor risk related to diversity or pay equity?

“Every large organization is susceptible to workforce-related risks,” says Dave Weisbeck, Chief Strategy Officer, Visier. “To manage those risks, vigilant workforce leaders make it a habit to ask questions to discover where they have exposure. Until Visier, answering these critical questions about risk was a complex, error prone, and time consuming process.”

Visier makes it easy for HR and business leaders to answer critical, yet complex questions in a number of key areas, including:

US Department of Labor Overtime Regulation Risks

  • Do employees in the same job family have different overtime classifications?
  • Are there employees who are misclassified to receive overtime pay?
  • Is the volume of vacant positions leading to increased overtime hours?

Leadership Succession Risks

  • Which leadership positions do not have a successor who is ready now?
  • Which successors have been waiting the longest to progress?
  • What risks exist due to overlapping succession plans?

Pay Equity Risks

  • Are there signs of bias related to gender and levels of pay?
  • Are pay increases distributed equally between female and male employees?
  • Does the way variable pay is awarded create pay equity risks?

Diversity Risks

  • Are employee promotions distributed similarly across different ethnic groups?
  • Are resignations distributed similarly across ethnic groups?
  • Are involuntary terminations distributed similarly across different ethnic groups?

The Visier SUMMER release also includes deeper insights into employee movement, enabled by an advanced employee movement analytic, which allows users to filter employee movement by workforce events, such as promotions, to discover how movement affects a subpopulation of employees. As well, the SUMMER release of Visier Workforce Planning includes enhancements to its enterprise-wide collaboration capabilities.
