Vancouver, British Columbia and San Francisco – May 7, 2019 – Visier, the globally recognized leader in people analytics and planning, today released Visier People™: Diversity and Inclusion, an analytics solution that provides executives comprehensive up-to-date visibility into the state of diversity and inclusion within their organization. The new SaaS solution enables leaders to identify opportunities and risks and make informed decisions toward achieving their organization’s D&I goals.
For nearly ten years, Visier customers have utilized Visier’s core HR analytics solutions as part of their broader diversity strategy, uncovering valuable insights about their workforces. With the launch of Visier People™: Diversity and Inclusion, Visier now offers a solution designed for Chief Diversity Officers and leaders to utilize insights to further their mandate to set and execute on a D&I strategy.
“The best organizations know that Diversity and Inclusion efforts are the right thing to do for society and for the growth and sustainability of their business,” said Paul Rubenstein, Chief People Officer of Visier. “Yet the majority of organizations still struggle to turn their aspirations into achievements. We built Visier’s D&I analytics solution to close the gap between setting goals and taking action. Companies can put meaningful insights in everyone’s hands. Change happens when it’s easy for everyone to see the richness of a company’s talent. Visibility is a critical step to leveling the playing field as we strive for objective, informed choices about interviewing, hiring and promotion.”
Many Boards and C-Suites have made Diversity and Inclusion a leading business priority, and as such, have joined coalitions of companies committed to taking specific actions towards their goals, including regular measurement and analysis of their state of D&I.
The majority of these companies employ a Chief Diversity Officer, whose role is to understand the demographics of their workforce and improve the dynamics of their organization. However, according to research conducted by Russell Reynolds Associates only 35 percent of Chief Diversity Officers say they have employee demographic data, leaving the majority without hard numbers to support their work. Visier People™: Diversity and Inclusion gives these leaders the insights they need to drive strategic change within their organizations.
With Visier People™: Diversity and Inclusion, leaders can:
- Understand and answer critical, diversity-focused questions like demographics, diversity headcount, diversity turnover, and hiring trends.
- Clearly communicate organizational changes and diversity insights to the entire team through dynamic, real time visual storytelling.
- Compare D&I results to global benchmarks, offering insights into how your organization measures up in your industry by headcount, ratio, turnover and more.
- Understand engagement among diverse employees and monitor the impact engagement has on turnover and exit patterns.
- Securely share insights with all stakeholders to reinforce progress toward goals and to improve accountability.
