Vee, Visier’s generative AI digital assistant, instantly answers workforce-specific questions for HR leaders, line managers, and CHROs—securely and accurately—helping to democratize people insights to all levels of an organization. Built specifically for HR and people analytics, Vee is anchored in a domain-specific data model, a community dataset built on 25 million anonymized employee records, more than 2,000 business metrics, and 250 million benchmarks. 

Vee’s powerful yet simple conversational interface seamlessly integrates into daily workflows, accessible within Visier People® and Microsoft Teams through our integration. 

Vee is designed for enterprise-level scale and security, and is also the foundation for Vee for Partners, which dramatically accelerates generative AI product roadmaps for people tech SaaS vendors and solution providers.

Why generative AI for people analytics?

The potential of generative AI is massive, and its impact on people analytics will be monumental. Why? Three common obstacles stand in the way of a breakthrough people analytics program:

  1. Gaining broad end-user adoption 

  2. Getting answers to questions quickly 

  3. Interpreting data correctly 

Generative AI can blast past those friction points and make self-serve analytics a reality at an unprecedented pace. Vee will radically improve end-user adoption, deliver insights instantaneously, and elevate your organization’s data literacy—all in one fell swoop.

“Vee is one of the most spectacular examples of generative AI in HR today. Every problem we need to solve in HR is interconnected. HR professionals need to connect data to diagnose people and business problems, and tools like Vee make this amazingly easy.”

-Josh Bersin

What does Visier’s Vee do?

Vee adds a simple conversational interface to people analytics, supplementing charts and graphs with narrative answers to complex people questions. This new capability puts the right insights into the hands of any people leader who has questions about their workforce.

Vee translates natural language questions into Visier’s queries, returning accurate and perfectly crafted narrative answers without relying on proprietary customer data. Vee makes the power of people analytics accessible to anyone—even those who are less comfortable interpreting charts and graphs.

While some workforce data is available to many people leaders today, they may be challenged in knowing where to find that data, and how to ask questions that provide actionable insights. With Vee, their digital assistant can learn and react to these questions to pinpoint the right information from the completely secure Visier platform—and explain these insights in a way people leaders can confidently utilize.

Vee makes it easier than ever before for people leaders to ask, explore, and take action


Ask Vee any question about your workforce and it will provide the answers in simple narrative form. 


Drill deeper into the data with help from Vee, making it easy to explore more specific datasets. Vee suggests additional context and follow-up questions that might be helpful.

And easily compare data across any dimension you choose.

Or see how you stack up versus benchmarks.

Take action

Vee delivers insights to managers across the business so they can take small, everyday actions that add up to big change.

People insights integrated with your workflow tools

In addition to using Vee inside Visier People, our integration with Microsoft Teams allows organizations to ask Vee questions in the flow of their daily work. Managers throughout the organization can get valuable insights and data related to their teams and departments—without having to go into Visier People—by simply asking the question via Microsoft Teams.

“Vee is the future. It’s a technology that we absolutely need. It’s a game changer for the less tech-savvy to access people insights, like frontline managers who can ask a simple question in Microsoft Teams about their turnover and get an immediate answer instead of coming to the people analytics team.

-Sameer Raut
Vice President, HRIS, Sunstate Equipment


4 things that make Vee unique

With all of the recent news and announcements about generative AI from HR technology providers, why is Visier’s solution special? It boils down to four things.

1. Accuracy and Visier’s proprietary underlying data model

Generative AI is only as good as the underlying data it’s trained on. Visier not only brings together all of the disparate data across your HR tech stack, but we also have the content, questions, answers, metrics, and supporting knowledge to understand what the data means and how to explain it to end users. Generative AI makes asking questions easier than ever, and only Visier has the scope of information needed to draw accurate conclusions to nearly any question. And unlike some generative AI tools making headlines, Vee won’t accidentally hallucinate or return inaccurate data because Vee is trained on our proprietary model.

2. Visier’s best-in-class privacy and security model

Most consumer-facing generative AI applications like ChatGPT draw from a massive collection of public information available across the internet. But building a generative AI application for enterprise organizations is a different challenge, because much of the underlying data is private and, in some cases, highly sensitive. To support these privacy demands, a robust security model must be at the core of any solution.

Visier has the most advanced security model and permissions available, ensuring the results returned by Vee are only to authorized end-users based on their assigned security model and associated permissions. This means that Vee’s answers from one person to another, while both accurate, will be different.

3. Visier’s unparalleled speed and performance

Visier can uniquely telescope up or down in the organization, just as easily responding to queries about an individual employee or summarizing insights about tens of thousands of employees nearly instantly. Because generative AI works best as a continuous conversation, only Visier can provide insights in the flow of conversation without waiting for reports to run slow queries against antiquated databases.

4. Vee is part of the Alpine platform

Have an application or workflow you want to enable with a generative AI-based conversational interface? No problem. The services enabling Vee are part of the Alpine platform and will be available as an optional service of the Alpine platform for embedded partners and other platform users.
