Visier People® Workplace Dynamics - Collaboration Circles

Last updated:


Visier People® Workplace Dynamics - Collaboration Circle gives you insight with collaboration analytics to better understand how people and teams work together to improve productivity.

Workplace Dynamics - Collaboration Circle provides continuous insights to create high-performing teams and reveal hidden organizational risks.

Workplace Dynamics - Collaboration Circle continuously collects and draws insight from passive data on digital collaboration between employees.

Further refine the powerful set of prebuilt metrics and analyses with data filters, or use them as a starting point to create your own questions unique to your needs.

What value is delivered?

Workplace Dynamics - Collaboration Circle is designed to enable an organization to uncover how the interaction between employees and their working environment has an impact on business results. Below are the specific challenges addressed by Workplace Dynamics:

  • Uncover Collaboration Circles: Find out how your team is connected within your team, your organization, and your company network.

    Why is it important? Understanding who your team members are working with and who they are not working with is the first step in understanding team dynamics and what good teams look like.

  • Discover Collaboration Barriers: Discover if there are processes or procedures that may be creating barriers to successful collaboration.

    Why is this important? Hidden barriers to collaboration may be creating frustration and reducing productivity. Uncovering where there might be hidden barriers in collaboration by gaining insight into collaboration patterns can improve team success.

  • Understand Inclusion: Gain insights into who is included and who is missing from team collaboration.

    Why is this important? Successful team collaboration means that the right people are in the room.  Teams can often become siloed and collaboration can suffer resulting in rework, extended timelines, and in worst cases, project failure.

To unlock the full potential of Workplace Dynamics - Collaboration Circle, we recommend having Visier People® Essentials. Alternatively, the following data elements are required:

Employee Profile
The employee profile contains information about the employee including employee name, email address, department, supervisory hierarchy, start date, exit date, time zone, permissions (whether or not survey and/or passive/active data is to be collected on the employee), and language preferences. 

Employee profile data can be used to provide insights to employees and their leaders at the individual level. It will help you answer critical questions such as:

  • What is my collaboration circle?

  • Who is my team collaborating with both by individual and by department?

You have the option to load permissions data to monitor whether or not passive data is to be collected on the employee.

Permissions data allows the individual and/or company to opt employees in or out of passive listening: 

  • Whether or not digital activity is being collected for the employee.

View permissions can also be set, restricting data to employee-only or employee and manager.

For more information, please refer to the following documents:

  • Data Dictionary: Provides comprehensive information about the data elements.

  • Application Definitions: Provides an extensive list of metrics, dimensions, content, and guidebooks that will be lit up once we have loaded these data elements.
