Visier Launches “What if” Models to Empower Businesses With Future Insights

June 25, 2019

Visier People takes the guesswork out of planning for the future 


VANCOUVER, BC and SAN FRANCISCO– June 25, 2019 Visier, the globally recognized leader in people analytics and planning, today announced new “What if” capabilities within the Talent and Talent Acquisition solutions of Visier People. These capabilities will empower front line managers with insights into how to future proof their organization when it comes to talent retention and acquisition. 

“What-if models  help take the uncertainty out of the future. Rather than trying to understand what actions an organizations could take, these insights help drive the actions they should take,” said Ian Cook, VP of People Solutions for Visier. “By empowering organizations with insights into how certain decisions may impact their future business outcomes, Visier’s new What If capability means our customers will be able to plan better talent choices, and advance HR’s ability to make a commercial contribution to the business.”


Three “What if” models are currently available within Visier People: 

  1. Projected headcount– What will my Headcount be if I change the rates of employee starts and exits? 
  2. Projected female ratio– How can I change the Female Employee Ratio by changing the rates at which they apply and get hired? 
  3. Projected hires– How can I achieve a Headcount target by changing the rates at which candidates apply and get hired?

Each of these “What if” models are available with the Visier People Spring release. Further models are planned in future product updates.
