Visier Announces Career Journeys, a New People Analytics Capability that Leverages Historic Data to Map Potential Career Paths

Vancouver, BC and San Jose, CA |

Big data analytics unlock the secret of how individuals progress at an organization

Visier, the recognized leader in people analytics and planning, announced Career Journeys, a first-of-its-kind capability – now  included in Visier People® Talent  – that analyzes the lifecycle of an organization’s people to answer important questions about the movement and development of talent. With Career Journeys, people managers can understand career mobility like never before, answering questions such as:

  • What intermediate roles should I consider to achieve my career goals?

  • Which path is the quickest, and which is the most common?

  • How long does an individual typically stay in each role?

“Millennials – the largest age cohort in the workforce today – have a bias towards mobility and expect career progression. Our own aggregated customer data shows that Millennial groups with higher rates of internal mobility, experience lower resignation rates,” says John Schwarz, Visier Co-Founder and CEO. “A key to retaining critical talent, therefore, is for managers to be able to articulate – with credibility – the career path for each individual. Career Journeys enables this.”  

  Visier People’s Career Journeys analyzes an organization’s historic people data, and calculates the many routes employees have taken from one role to another. The outcome is a map of all the career paths taken within an organization, with insights into the fastest and most common paths. “With Career Journeys, managers can now understand and share the potential career paths for each of their employees, allowing managers to have deeper, more productive career planning discussions,” explains Dave Weisbeck, Visier’s Chief Strategy Officer. “Managers no longer have to rely on intuition or guessing to better develop and engage critical talent.”
