Visier earns recognition from Deloitte for the third straight year in a row
Visier, the recognized leader in people analytics and planning, today announced the company has been listed on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ and Fast 500™ for its rapid revenue growth, entrepreneurial spirit and bold innovation.
“For Visier to be recognized by Deloitte as one of Canada’s fastest growing companies three years in a row is a reflection of the untapped opportunity presented by the need to really understand people as employees and of the comprehensive and easy to use way Visier meets this need,” said John Schwarz, CEO of Visier. “Visier has driven rapid changes over the past year with the launch of new capabilities for the enterprise, delivered People Analytics for midsize organizations, and began to build a comprehensive global partner network. We are honoured to be recognized once again by Deloitte as we continue to pursue our vision of analytics for everyone.”
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector, which have transformed the industry.
