Turning Data into Actionable Analytics

Very few organizations are able to use their workforce data to actually improve their business. The reason? Most don’t have the time, the resources or the specialized data professionals required to extract actionable intelligence from their raw data. If this is your organization, OptForce is for you.

It starts with
your data.

We collect all of your workforce data—no matter how raw or disconnected. Then our data scientists, statisticians and optimization experts cleanse, harmonize and process the data.

Build and validate a simulation model.

This is a customized model of your workforce—extremely accurate and highly reliable—which is then used to answer your specific questions and analyze various “what if” scenarios.

Deliver actionable analytics

We roll the model forward in time to give you forecasting analytics—the heart of workforce planning and optimization. We also give you present-day metrics (current recruiting results, turnover, etc.), comparing them against industry standards, best practices and your internal goals. We even roll the model back in time to give you retrospective analyses—an invaluable practice for informing your future workforce planning.
