Protective Life needed a better way to gain and communicate actionable insights from their people data. They turned to Visier.
Valuable time used on manual reports
As Protective Life faced new challenges brought on by significant growth, the company needed a better, faster way to gain insights and make quick, data-informed decisions. Protective Life's HR analysts could spend considerable time hunting down answers to leadership's questions. Then they'd dedicate even more time to developing a digestible Excel spreadsheet to share their updates. The process was neither sustainable nor scalable.
Embracing advanced people analytics
To better understand workforce movement, Protective Life considered building their own tool from the ground up as well as repurposing other existing BI solutions into a people analytics tool. But once the HR team discovered the functionality, scalability, and accessibility that Visier People®: Organization could offer, the choice was simple. “We knew where our gaps were,” explains Matthew. “We selected Visier as part of our intentional journey to enhance our capabilities and infrastructure.”
Visier is far and away the best people analytics platform on the market.
