PredictiveHire, used by some of the most trusted consumer brands in the world, today announced it has changed its name to Sapia to better reflect its unique position in the market of building AI HR solutions that are truly human-centered.

The name “Sapia” is a combination of Homo Sapien (human) plus AI.

“From day one we have focussed on creating AI technology that elevates the human experience,” said Sapia CEO Barb Hyman. “Our technology is personalized, smart and empowering.  It’s also  fully blind making it inclusive and fair. That means that when you use Sapia the impact on hiring diversity is immediate.”

Recent pay equity research from compensation management firm® reveals corporate actions are falling short of employee expectations. Among the findings: almost half of employees surveyed do not think they are paid fairly compared to people in the same role at other companies, and over a third do not think they are paid fairly compared to their internal colleagues.

Compounding the issue, only one-third of companies say any manager at their company can honestly and accurately answer when an employee asks, “How is my pay determined?” To close this divide between employee expectations and corporate reality, has introduced the Plunkett Pay Equity Framework™, which prescribes a six-step methodology, backed by data analytics, for attaining and sustaining pay equity.

Triggered by the global pandemic and the Great Resignation, human resources (HR) departments everywhere are receiving extensive attention, and in many cases, investments to help remedy recruitment and retention woes. To help further navigate this environment, isolved has launched its People Heroes Community where customers using isolved People Cloud can connect and collaborate all while earning and redeeming points for consuming content, communicating with others and championing their experiences.

“People trust people,” said Lina Tonk, Senior Vice President of Marketing at isolved. “When people have personal or professional challenges, they want to hear from other people who have faced a similar challenge, what they used to solve it and what they learned from it too. The launch of the isolved People Heroes Community is another way for isolved to enable our customers to exceed their personal and professional goals. The People Heroes Community provides a vibrant space for customers to source information and validation while learning how to maximize their current isolved investment and future innovation – all in a fun, interactive and gamified way.”

The isolved People Heroes Community is now active with pre-registered People Heroes, isolved’s customer advocacy program, already completing over 400 challenges (ranging from providing peer answers to participating in case studies). isolved direct customers can sign up for People Heroes here for access to the community.
