Vancouver, BC and San Jose, CA |

Visier’s SPRING 2015 releases further democratize Big Data analytics and planning

Visier, the innovation leader in Workforce Intelligence, today announced the SPRING 2015 releases of Visier Workforce Analytics and Visier Workforce Planning. The new releases focus on continuing Visier’s mission to make data-driven workforce decision making and planning an accessible and everyday experience for Human Resources (HR) teams and the business leaders and managers they support. “Core to Visier Workforce Planning is the ability to create different workforce plan scenarios to support better decision making,” says Dave Weisbeck, Chief Strategy Officer, Visier. “With the SPRING 2015 release, Visier customers can automatically generate presentations to share the details of a specific plan scenario, or to compare multiple plan scenarios to each other, allowing HR and business leaders to make more informed decisions.” For any workforce plan scenario, stakeholders can easily see:

  • What is the movement for headcount?

  • What is the trend for the total cost of workforce?

  • What is the breakdown for headcount by organization?

  • What is the breakdown for total cost of workforce by organization per year?

  • What is the trend for hires and turnover?

In addition, Visier Workforce Planning SPRING 2015 includes new capabilities to facilitate multi-dimensional, data-driven planning, allowing workforce planners to easily switch between views. For instance, planners can develop plans based on “measures” such as headcount (taking into account historic trends, planned hires, and projected exits) and cost of workforce (seeing all workforce costs and how they are changing), or by “attributes” (such as department, location, or role). Visier Workforce Analytics SPRING 2015 also includes functionality to further enable enterprise-wide data-driven decision making, letting HR and people managers answer time-sensitive questions about specific team members without the hours of manual effort otherwise required. “With the SPRING release of Visier Workforce Analytics we are excited to introduce Visier Talent Advisor, a market-changing new capability that enables real-time comparative, cohort analysis of specific employees,” says Weisbeck. “With Visier, HR and people managers can gain meaningful insights into specific employees via relevant, automated comparisons. Because Visier connects all of an organization’s workforce data -- from all its disparate HR systems -- Visier can provide a more relevant analysis, taking into account hundreds of employee attributes, related to demographics, performance, compensation, learning and development, recognition, and more.” Read the Press Release about Visier Talent Advisor.
