As today’s business world continues to be transformed by the sheer volume, speed, and availability of data, information about professionals and their work-related performance has become an essential competitive advantage.
A window into the global mobility and evolution of human capital has opened. Investment managers and global corporations now look to “people data” to provide granular workforce views and help uncover trends within localized employment hubs, regions, and national and international industries.
While the popularity of human capital data in the investment community is apparent, there are still several factors that investors, data users, and buyers need to consider when evaluating such content and determining a suitable approach.
Whether stakeholders choose to buy, build, or blend different human capital datasets, self-reflection on their data collection, downstream workflow requirements, and investment goals is critical to their strategy. From asset owners and investment managers to researchers, data scientists, and software developers, all end-users require transparent, ever-expanding coverage, comprehensive mapping capabilities, and data granularity that can keep pace with their evolving needs.
