Visier Announces Standardized Occupations and Certified Developer Program

Vancouver, BC |

Visier, the globally recognized leader in people analytics and planning, announced two new innovations that are immediately available to all Visier customers: Standardized Occupations and the Visier Certified Developer Program. Standardized Occupations is now available as a no-charge option to Visier customers with the latest release. Standardized Occupations utilizes AI and the Emsi BurningGlass jobs structure to match an organization’s job names to a standardized list of job names and hierarchies. This removes one of the most critical barriers to understanding equity across compensation, promotion, career and retention programs by standardizing job names for like-to-like comparison.  “If you do not know that people are doing the same work, you cannot measure whether or not they are being treated fairly,” said Ian Cook, VP, Analytics of Visier. “Every organization has to periodically spend what are often enormous sums of money on consulting projects to clean up their messy or mismatched job names. With Standardized Occupations, Visier now does the work for you, continuously augmenting your source data, building alignment across your organization, and ensuring you can always match your jobs internally and to the external market.” Through Standardized Occupations, Visier customers can: 

  • Establish a single common view of all jobs across their organization

  • Remove barriers to equitable compensation, promotion, and recognition decisions

  • Improve career conversations and insights around internal mobility

  • Improve workforce planning and cost decisions

  • Automatically know the top five expected skills for each role across your organization

In addition, people analytics teams who want a high degree of speed, flexibility and control when it comes to configuring and extending their Visier application can enroll in the Visier Certified Developer program. This unlocks a new level of self-service, providing access to the powerful developer toolset that is built into Visier itself. Certified Developers can quickly customize their existing solution, making the most of Visier’s rich set of analytic capabilities. “The Certified Developer program is the latest step in making Visier even more flexible and valuable for  our customers,” said Adam Binnie, Chief Product Officer of Visier. “Now, certified developers will be able to use Visier’s rich analytical capabilities to customize the most complete out of the box people analytics solution on the market today. These developers can quickly add bespoke  metrics or update configurations to meet new requirements, delivering a new level of speed, flexibility and value to their organizations.”  Both Standardized Occupations, and the Visier Certified Developer program are now available to all Visier customers and partners.
