Visier is a founding member of the People Intelligence Alliance (PIA), which is a community of data-driven people leaders and industry experts helping to steer the future of work towards openness, transparency, and collaboration with an independent agenda.

“I was really excited when I first heard about the People Intelligence Alliance at last year’s HR Tech,” said Lexy Martin, Chair of the PIA Council, Principal, Research and Customer Value for Visier.  This initiative will help countless people and organizations collectively steer the future of work towards openness, transparency, and collaboration. The future of work is here and, without inspired leadership informed by the right data, the future of business will hang in the balance . We see solving this challenge as one that requires an active and engaged community, powered by the wisdom of many.”

Launched in September 2020, the People Intelligence Alliance integrated a community  of vendors, practitioners, customers, and service providers committed to openness and connectivity of data, to bring new levels of clarity and insights to HR and people management. Members of the People Intelligence Alliance pledge to uphold four primary values: 

  1. Placing people at the heart of our work, eradicating bias, and making people count. 
  2. Connecting information seamlessly between applications in support of better decisions. 
  3. Collaborating with alliance partners, customers, and experts to expand the “wisdom of many” to unlock innovation.
  4. Ensuring fair, ethical, and secure use of all information while respecting privacy.

The PIA welcomes data-driven people leaders who want to be part of the conversations. To join the movement, take the pledge at www.peopleintelligence.org
