The Backstory

Our mission is simple: get the right people into their right jobs, to drive success at work.

It all began when I realized I hated work… Despite a career that included working with some of the best-known companies in the world, I found work mainly frustrating and unfulfilling.  It turns out I wasn’t alone. After several discussions with others it became clear to me that this feeling was not just a “me” thing, but a widespread problem affecting most people and businesses around the world.  It made me think “if so many people are unhappy in their jobs, where is the disconnect and why isn’t something being done to fix it?”

I set off on a journey to understand ‘why’ and to also find the right, exciting career for me. I tried to reimagine and explore new ways to view the relationship between people and work.  First, I saw a shocking level of apathy in the market – acceptance that we can’t do better – which I considered ridiculous. I met with experts who were using different pieces of information to help improve work happiness and performance, and it was really powerful stuff!  But it was also all over the place and needed expertise to deliver – so the valuable information was being wasted.  It was then that I had my ‘aha’ moment – my “spark” if you like – why couldn’t someone combine all this information together and make it available to everyone and for every job so that the right people could be matched in their right role and organization – to radically improve the way organizations and people came together! The more I looked into this approach, the more I was shocked that no one was already offering this solution to businesses. Of course, the HR world has been undeniably and infuriatingly slow to evolve and adapt to a rapidly shifting workforce, but I knew this revolutionary solution would fill the most critical gaps facing employees and businesses today. It was just a matter of bringing these concepts to life in a clear and easy way that would have the best leaders jumping at the chance to use these insights to improve their work-force decisions.

And so, I found the right career for me. Together with an incredibly passionate and talented team of people, we developed a People Intelligence Platform to do Predictive Talent Mobility for people and businesses everywhere.  This revolutionary predictive analytics platform uses both science and data to successfully match people with the jobs that they will thrive in and helps business leaders to build high performing, more productive teams (of much happier people) in a clear, easy and scalable way.

Today, we are proud that nearly 5,000 companies and over 2 million people have already joined us to start making better people decisions for career pathing, internal mobility and hiring. If you’re fed up with the status quo and are ready to drive better people results with a modern solution that actually works – this is for you.

Don't just cross your fingers hoping your people decisions will pan out...

Stop guessing. Start knowing.
