2022 Top HR Product Gloat Workforce Intelligence

What it is: For many organizations, workforce strategy is often encumbered by fragmented systems and manual processes that make it difficult to meet the demands of increasingly agile talent and business needs. With this in mind, Gloat built the Workforce Intelligence suite to solve the challenges of accessing scalable skills, jobs and talent insight, empowering organizations to understand and adapt to market needs. The Workforce Intelligence suite provides the actionable insights to design future-fit workforces and drive positive business outcomes—all powered by its proprietary dataset of network aggregate and external data, customer HR data and real-time continuous engagement.

Why we like it: Reviewing and choosing a candidate based on their experience is so pre-pandemic. Today’s HR and talent acquisition leaders have shifted to building skills-based organizations, and that’s where Gloat’s Workforce Intelligence shines. The solution analyzes data across multiple HR systems, the talent marketplace and external market data to gather and present that information in a single unified dataset. This helps business leaders understand rising and declining skills over time; skills clustering, categorization and adjacencies; skills demand, supply and gaps; and benchmarks within the market. Our judges were particularly impressed with the solution’s job architecture console and its ease of use. Now that’s a skill!
