The Activ8 Intelligence team is thrilled to have won the 2022 HR Tech Award for Best Analytics, Measurement, and Business Impact Solution. The win, awarded for our illumin8HR people analytics platform, recognises the unique ways in which our product goes above and beyond the competition.
Commenting on the award, Ben Eubanks, Chief Research Officer, Lighthouse Research & Advisory, said about illumin8HR:
“A difficulty with most data measurement? Averages. If you’re not average, you’re not heard. Activ8’s illumin8HR product looks deeper, finding moving trends and hotspots to surface automatically so HR and managers can take action.”
This is exactly why we’re proud of what our solution offers. By putting analytics simply and safely in the hands of more managers and decision makers, we help them learn more about their teams, and take more informed actions.
Heidi Lopez, Managing Director of Activ8 Intelligence said:
“I’m both delighted and proud of our amazing team and the illumin8HR product. It is a fantastic accolade for Activ8 and for our partners who have worked with us to make analytics accessible and impactful for the 1,000+ organisations using it to make great people decisions every day.”
The uniqueness of illumin8HR
Most people analytics solutions are either the product of business intelligence (BI) teams or dedicated people analytics providers – in either scenario, the end users are typically HR departments.
In contrast, illumin8HR is designed for people managers who don’t have the time or sometimes the skills to interpret the analytics. As well as providing simple HR dashboards, illumin8HR automatically looks for anomalies in the underlying data and prioritises them based on the organisation’s HR goals, presenting them to the user in easy-to-understand language, with all key information on one screen.
There is real excitement and engagement about how this functionality is helping people managers and HR departments have a more tangible impact on their organisations and deliver a more measurable ROI from deploying people analytics technology.
With illumin8HR, end users can really measure the impact of workforce investments by focusing on areas such as staff retention, reducing absence, reducing recruitment cost and reducing spend on temporary workers, to name a few.
What’s different about illumin8HR?
illumin8HR is changing the people analytics experience for users and moving it away from being simply a tool to something that drives change and continuous improvement:
- Not just for HR. illumin8HR makes people analytics accessible to people managers across an organisation, not just HR, meaning insights are presented directly into the hands of the people who can make a difference.
- Accessible insights. By presenting insights in plain language and placing all key information relevant to the organisation’s goals on one screen, the time and skills required to interpret the insights and understand them are minimised.
- Collaborate within the platform. Rather than having to rely on exporting data or taking screenshots of charts and reports to share them, data can be easily shared within the platform with individuals or teams and discussions can be held in a Teams-like format to help foster collaboration.
- Drive measurable impact. Users can create Action Plans within the platform to tackle issues highlighted, which allow them to set measurable targets and check in on them over time to ensure plans are on track.
