Visier People®: Essentials

Your surest path to People Analytics success

It’s no secret that people are usually the largest expense in any organization, but they’re often the least understood. Organizations want to be more data-driven in their decision making about people, but we often hear that they don’t know how to get started, don’t want to boil the ocean, or have tried to get a people analytics practice off the ground and failed due to higher-than-expected expense, slow time to value, or lack of internal resources.

Visier People®: Skills Intelligence Engine

Your skills journey starts here

Over the last couple years, there’s been a lot of buzz about the need to become a skills-based organization. And with good reason—businesses must continually evolve to succeed. But in many cases, the reality hasn’t lived up to the hype. In our conversations with customers, prospects, and industry experts, we hear that many organizations’ skills initiatives have turned out to be overly complex, expensive, time-consuming, and just plain unwieldy. 

Why? Because too often organizations are jumping into the deep end of the pool, for example by buying a talent marketplace before building the foundation and understanding their current state. Our new Skills Intelligence Engine is the ideal starting point for most organizations looking to get started on their skills journey,  identifying the skills their organization already has as well as the skills they need.

Visier’s solution is different from others in that it gives organizations skills data on every employee and requisition literally overnight—so you can focus on solving strategic problems now. With Visier People: Skills Intelligence Engine, you can enhance and augment ALL of your HR processes with skills data and insights, including applying a skills lens to:

  • Retention

  • Compensation and pay equity  

  • Internal movement

  • Skills planning

  • Retirement risk

Visier People Skills Intelligence Engine provides an advanced jobs and skills ontology with over 3,000 occupations (for employees and requisitions), 15M+ job titles, 14,000+ standardized skills, across 27 industries and 27 different languages. It also provides insights into the automatability and remote workability of skills, so you can make better decisions about recruiting, retention, compensation, and remote work.

Visier People®: Workplace Dynamics

Collaboration insights to improve productivity & effectiveness

With distributed workforces, the rise of hybrid and remote work, increasing employee burnout, and the ubiquity of digital collaboration, it’s now more difficult—and more critical—than ever to understand how employees and teams get work done. 

Visier People: Workplace Dynamics helps organizations understand how people work in order to provide the insights needed to create high-performing teams, reveal organizational risks, and empower employees and leaders to maximize their impact. 

Workplace Dynamics uses passive listening to understand how and with whom employees collaborate, how they feel, and how they get work done. This is then combined with actively solicited employee feedback, including strengths and weaknesses of team members with whom employees are working closely, to provide the most complete view of employee collaboration, well-being, and productivity. 

Initially launched in late 2022, a number of new capabilities to the Workplace Dynamics product offering have recently been added, including:

  • Turn sentiment, feedback, team dynamics, and work patterns into real-time, actionable insights that help people work better together and maximize productivity.

  • Reveal truths that are dangerously hidden in organizations, including burnout, risk of exit, and under utilized talent. When revealed, these result in a more resilient business.

  • Provide continuous insights to everyone in the organization, enabling colleagues to become better teammates, managers, and partners.

Additional innovations

Work location analysis, alerts, custom solutions, and more

In addition to the major product launches above, Visier released several other new product enhancements, including:

  • Location Check-ins: Allowing organizations to load and analyze workplace check-in data, which occurs through a badge swipe or an access card at a physical location or a network login. Using this feature can help you answer questions such as: Are hybrid employees adhering to agreed-upon workplace policies? Are costly office locations being used as expected? How do performance, productivity, and turnover compare between employees working in-office, remotely, and hybrid? 

  • Exception Alerts: Raises a flag anytime a metric of interest rises or falls outside of the historical norm within an organization. This functionality saves hours of sifting through and analyzing data to identify what’s significant in it.

  • Long-term Project Assignments: Allows organizations that deploy employees to long-lived, but time-bound, projects to assess usage and team composition. This can be used to apply diversity to the mix of talent on specific projects and maximize productivity within a staff base.

There’s never been a better time to get started with people analytics – we hope you’ll join us.
