About Us

At PeopleInsight our exclusive focus is workforce analytics, delivered to the mid-market. With our extensive experience in HR and BI, we recognized a real need in the HR and Talent space. We saw tons of disconnected and under-utilized data and we wanted to help bring this together and equip HR and Talent leaders with access to analytics, insight and expertise needed to drive better decisions and outcomes. We also recognized that mid-market companies needed a unique approach. Without the big budgets or dedicated teams, there were no viable offerings for mid-sized companies for analytics solutions.

So, with the best and brightest minds, we built PeopleInsight.

PeopleInsight is the one and only workforce analytics solution designed for companies between 1000 to 5000 employees. Our out-of-the-box solution quickly and seamlessly connects all relevant data sources to deliver must-have workforce analytics aligned to specific business priorities. More than just a software solution, PeopleInsight provides expert and ongoing guidance to our customers. We believe in a high-touch, hands-on approach and that’s why our team of experts are available anytime to provide guidance and support as you evolve your analytics to meet changing business priorities. Many of our customers will tell you, PeopleInsight acts as an extension of their team – providing expertise and guidance in all things analytics.

Office Operations

Obie leads our Office Operations division – or at-least she thinks she does. Inspired from Obi-Wan-Kenobi, Obie is well beyond her years in terms of wisdom (not unlike the average Weimaraner), disciplined (not always), but most of all, lovable. In this picture Obi(e) is voraciously debating the logic of one of Andrew's algorithms. Andrew won (eventually).
