What value is delivered?

Visier People Project Assignment is designed to enable an organization to deploy employees to long-lived but time-bound projects to assess utilization and team composition. The unique problems solved by Visier People Project Assignment are listed below:

  • Optimize Project Utilization: Provides a comprehensive overview of the current and recent utilization of employees on project work. This enables organizations to understand the amount and size of projects and the effort required to complete them, so they can identify potential employee availability for additional projects and measure utilization over time.

    Why is it important? By exploring project utilization, organizations can ensure that their resources are optimized. It allows them to identify areas of underutilization or overutilization and make necessary adjustments. Optimizing assignments ensures that resources are properly allocated, minimizing waste and maximizing productivity.

  • Manage Project Talent Mix and Diversity: Provides insight into the diversity of employees assigned to projects. It helps organizations identify managers with diverse project teams, the types of projects that tend to have non-diverse teams, and compare team productivity*.

    Why is it important? Diverse project teams are better equipped to solve complex problems. They approach challenges from different angles and leverage the collective knowledge and skills of team members. This diversity in problem-solving enables the team to identify innovative solutions and overcome obstacles more effectively.

*Individual production is available under the Visier People Total Rewards & Hourly Workers application.
