Brandon Hall Group Lauds Micron For Fueling HR Transformation with Data
Visier Customer Fosters a Data-Driven HR Culture With On-Demand Analytics
VANCOUVER, BC and SAN JOSE, CA – Visier, the innovation leader in Workforce Intelligence, today announced that one of its customers, Micron Technology, Inc., has earned a Brandon Hall Group 2014 Excellence in Technology Award for fuelling HR transformation with on-demand, self-service analytics.

“Our world is more complex now. People decisions must be guided by data,” says Tim Long, Director of Workforce Information, Micron. “In our experience, the reason data is less often used for people decisions is that it takes too long to prepare and access. With self-service analytics, our HR team can focus more on business questions and answers and less time on preparing and processing the data in between.”
Since implementing Visier Workforce Analytics in late 2013, as part of its broader data-driven HR strategy, Micron’s Workforce Information team has rolled out self-service analytics to more than 150 HR leaders and business partners and more than 800 business area managers globally. As a result, Micron is uncovering new workforce insights that can be used to make decisions that are closely linked to business performance.
“We are very proud of Micron’s Workforce Information team for their success in moving up the workforce analytics maturity curve,” says John Schwarz, CEO and Co-Founder, Visier. “They are leading the pack in data-driven HR, helping intuition-based professionals tell stories with data so they can drive talent strategies that are linked to business results.”
A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the award entries based upon innovation, value proposition and measurable results.
Visier Workforce Analytics 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 stock value. Delivered in the cloud, Visier brings together all of a company’s workforce data, eliminating the need to implement a costly and time consuming data warehouse.
