A Pioneer in Business Intelligence focusing on the needs of Business Leaders: Visier


Employees are the true assets of an organization. Skilled and content employees contribute effectively towards the successful functioning of an organization. They strive hard to deliver their level best and achieve the assigned targets within the stipulated time frame. A successful organization knows the value of its employees and formulates policies to retain them and ensure growth for the company as well as its employees. Globally, there are various organizations offering excellent people analytics services, among them Visier stands out.

Hire Smarter

Hire Smarter helps you allocate and optimize resources to find today’s top talent. Identify where you have holes in your hiring funnel and tighten the process to stop good talent from slipping through. Is it the candidate experience? Overworked recruiters? A biased hiring process? Inefficient channels? Get clarity to make the right changes. Compensation is a major factor in attracting candidates, and you can’t afford to fly blind. Understand how the external labor market and compensation ratios influence hiring success so you can optimize your recruitment strategies. Finding good talent on the open market is expensive, and the solution to your talent acquisition challenge is often hiding in plain sight—inside your organization. Identify internal sources of candidates and reduce costs while providing career progression that leads to retention. Hire Smarter gives everyone in your organization the actionable insights to attract, and retain, today’s top talent.

Strategic Compensation

Inflation, turnover, and remote work have put your compensation strategy to the test. Strategic Compensation enables a plan that leads to business results. See the connections between compensation and hiring, retention, and productivity. Ensure your budget is directed at the most impactful areas, whether it be top performers, roles with high attrition, or historically-underprivileged employee groups. Find the right balance between investment and savings in your workforce. See how much proposed changes to your compensation structure will cost based on projected headcount, or how much you’ll save with reduced turnover and increased productivity. Uncover whether people are paid fairly, or if there is inequality hiding behind your rewards or job structure. Standardize jobs so people are paid fairly for the work they do, and change policies that lead to inequitable pay.
