How See Beyond Unlocks
Workforce Insights for Strategic

By Jake Ellis

For optimal business performance, HR, talent, and procurement leaders must be able to make decisions using insights captured from the platforms they use. However, when data is fragmented across multiple systems (e.g., HRMS, VMS, ATS, performance platforms, etc.), critical insights become trapped. Siloed data leaves leaders in the dark, resulting in decisions being made based on guesswork and instinct, resulting in misaligned strategies, and missed opportunities for growth.

See Beyond, a talent insights platform, can empower HR, talent and procurement leaders to unlock the true potential of their workforce and transform workforce data into a strategic asset.

What is a Talent Insights Platform? 

A talent insights platform is a powerful analytics solution specifically designed to unlock the value of your workforce data. It acts as a central hub, pulling together information from various HR systems (like your ATS and performance tools) as well as external market sources. This consolidation provides a comprehensive, unified view of your entire workforce.

A talent insight platform frees data from the straitjacket of operational systems to make it  and reusable, employing advanced data visualization and predictive AI to uncover hidden patterns, trends, and relationships within your data.

Without releasing data from your incumbent systems, insights will be difficult (if not impossible) to identify through reporting. Importantly, a talent insights platform transforms complex findings into clear, actionable recommendations. This supports informed decision-making across critical areas like recruitment, compensation, skill development, and employee retention. User-friendly dashboards and reports simplify the visualization and communication of workforce metrics to stakeholders throughout your organization.

According a Gartner study, by 2025, 70% of HR data will be generated by AI or machine learning technologies.

How See Beyond solves workforce data challenges

See Beyond tackles the complexities of workforce data through a systematic, four-stage approach.

Centralized data hub for your workforce

Step 1 – First, the platform acts as a powerful aggregator. It seamlessly harvests data from your existing HR systems, including your ATS, VMS, and other relevant sources. This eliminates the need for manual data extraction and creates a central repository of workforce information.

Uncover hidden connections

Step 2 – It organizes your data, forging the necessary linkages between data sets that don’t already exist. These are required to ‘ask anything of your data’ and to encourage users to be curious and ask new questions without the handcuffs of data crunching with spreadsheets.

Powerful predictive capabilities

Step 3 – Once data is organized and consolidated, See Beyond’s advanced analytics engine processes the data to reveal in-depth insights. The system identifies patterns, correlations, and relationships that might remain obscured within isolated systems. Crucially, See Beyond goes beyond descriptive analytics and actually employs predictive modeling. It forecasts workforce trends, anticipates potential risks, and highlights future budget implications.

Putting insights into action

Step 4 – This final stage delivers the most value. The platform translates complex findings into actionable insights. Intuitive dashboards, customizable reports, and interactive visualizations present information in a clear, digestible format. This empowers decision-makers across the organization to leverage data for strategic hiring, compensation adjustments, targeted skill development, and proactive retention initiatives.
