Vancouver, BC and San Jose, CA |

Leading Analyst Firm Lauds Visier for Workforce Management Technology Excellence

Visier, the innovation leader in Workforce Intelligence, today announced that it has won a Brandon Hall Group gold award in the Best Advance in Unique HR or Workforce Management Technology category. The award recognizes Visier for enabling businesses to understand their total cost of workforce with its Workforce Planning solution. (To view a complete list of the winners, click here.) “It is very gratifying to be recognized for our contribution to helping organizations turn workforce planning into a continuous, accurate, and streamlined process that delivers real bottom line results,” says John Schwarz, CEO and Founder, Visier. “Having an accurate picture of the complete organization and total cost of the workforce is critical to effective business planning -- yet most organizations today create workforce plans with an extremely inaccurate and limited view of their future people needs and costs. Visier Workforce Planning is a pioneering solution that will for the first time enable HR to input an accurate picture into the Enterprise Resource Planning process.” Visier Workforce Planning is part of a new solution category called Workforce Intelligence. With Workforce Intelligence, companies can fuel HR transformation initiatives, created to directly link the people strategy with revenue, profit, and market capital value. Improving the quality of workforce planning can result in significant bottom line savings for organizations. For Fortune 2000 companies, even a small improvement in the accuracy of workforce planning can translate into millions of dollars in savings. Visier Workforce Planning is based on the foundation of Visier Workforce Analytics, enabling organizations to develop workforce plans based on the insights they gain from their analytics. As a result of this connection, organizations are able to develop plans using current, accurate workforce data, and monitor actuals against plans over time. Once an organization has launched Visier Workforce Analytics, typically implemented in 4-8 weeks, it can then immediately “turn on” Visier Workforce Planning and start realizing its benefits. “HCM technology is a major enabler of business growth and our Excellence in Technology award winners epitomize the vision, creativity and resourcefulness that drive results. We are honored to recognize these excellent organizations,” said Mike Cooke, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon Hall Group. Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Office of Brandon Hall Group who runs the awards program, stated, "The award-winning initiatives and the skill and strategy that went into them is inspiring. The innovation represented by these winners can serve as models for success for many others that strive to push their organizations to the next level.” A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria:

  • Product: What was the product’s breakthrough innovation?

  • Unique differentiators: What makes the product unique and how does it differ from any competing products?
