Visier Celebrates its Most Successful Customer Conference Yet, with 1,800 Attendees at Outsmart 2022

Vancouver, BC |

Visier, the globally recognized leader in people analytics and on-demand answers for people-powered business, wrapped two days of its annual customer conference today, with over 1,800 attendees, 20 virtual sessions, keynotes from luminaries Susan David, PhD, Steve Cadigan, Ravin Jesuthasan, and Dan Riley; an acquisition announcement; and a celebration of some of Visier’s most innovative customers.

“Outsmart is our biggest event of the year, and we always look forward to the great customer success stories shared at this event,” said Ryan Wong, CEO of Visier. “This year was especially exciting for us, not only because we had record attendance, but also because of the exciting news we shared about our acquisition of Yva.ai and the great team we welcomed into the Visier family.”

Visier announces important acquisition

Announced on the first day of the conference, the acquisition of Yva.ai extends Visier’s people cloud vision with collaboration analytics that provides deep insight into how people work and how people work together. With this addition to Visier’s category defining product family, this new capability provides unmatched insight into the human truth inside an organization, helping business and employees to win together.

Deloitte and Visier unveil new research 

Unveiled at Outsmart, Deloitte and Visier shared new research findings revealing a “people impact gap” that stands between a variety of scattered HR data sources and the people managers in the best position to make decisions on behalf of the business and the employee. The dramatic changes in the labor market, the rise of remote work, and changing expectations of employees, has forced leaders to become more responsive, people-centric, and data-driven in their decision making. This research finds many leaders to be “drowning in data while starving for actionable insights to address everyday business and people issues.”
