People Driven Data

Almas offers a cutting-edge approach to integrating objective, human-driven data into the management of your workforce. The Almas analytics platform helps companies to determine where employees and candidates are a good fit, identifies high-performance individuals, builds more effective professional growth plans, and enables organizations to gain a greater understanding of workforce attrition.

The Problem

A lack of reliable soft skill data. Objectively quantifying human skills at scale hasn’t been an option.

To date, the hiring sector has been thinking inside of the box doubling down on dated methods that increasingly don’t work for successful candidate placement, talent development, or other critical aspects of talent strategy. This keeps occurring because objectively quantifying human skills at scale hasn’t been an option.

The Solution

The key to objectively and accurately measuring human skills requires the evaluation of work-relevant behaviors via a demonstrated performance in the context of the employer and their industry.

What Are They Saying?

“The professional growth and development of our people is one of our top priorities. By working with Almas we customized our programs and learning systems and delivered better results with field professionals.”

Learning and Development Director at a national healthcare organization

“I want to be able to offer a more interactive student experience and allow students to utilize some of the concepts and skills that are taught in the course. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that I implemented the simulation into the curriculum for all of my online classes this semester.”

Mihran Aroian, Ph.D., Lecturer, University of Texas McCombs School of Business

“We are facing some of the greatest challenges we’ve ever seen in the areas of organizational change and attrition. Almas provided us with data that enabled us to better focus our efforts and get a handle on how our company is changing.”

HR Executive at a national retailer

“This Spring semester, I used the Recurrence Signature Case Study in a large undergraduate Intro-to-OB class. There were two things that stood out. First, the business simulation was very approachable and easy to navigate for the students. It provided a unique opportunity for them to experience how it’s like to run a large company. Second, the support by Recurrence has been exceptional throughout the entire semester. Every time I had a question, I could be sure to receive a detailed and highly qualified response within a few hours. I look forward to using the simulation game again the next time I’m teaching this class.”

Oliver Schilke, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations, University of Arizona Eller College of Management

Almas provided the actionable business data they promised. By using HCAD we were able to more accurately target our HiPo’s (High Potential Individuals) and find the right people from our vast pool of candidates.”

Field Sales HR executive at a major Telecommunications Company

“I first implemented The Signature Case Study last fall in my graduate-level leadership class. The students’ experience was so positive – because they learned while having fun – that I chose to use the game again this spring. The game is a great tool that brings leadership styles to life for students. They experience virtually what they are learning in course readings, debates, and discussions.”

John J. Sosik, Ph.D., Professor of Management and Organization, Penn State Great Valley School of Graduate Professional Studies.
