SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Evolv, the leading provider of workforce profitability solutions, today announced a collaboration with researchers at the Yale School of Management, a groundbreaking academic contributor of research concerning domestic and international business resources. Through this collaboration, Evolv and Yale hope to pursue new research in workforce intelligence and the resultant impact on workforce productivity.
“Working with Yale researchers will allow unprecedented collaboration among leaders of the most rigorous research in workforce science,” said Evolv CEO Max Simkoff. “What’s particularly exciting about our collective data-driven approach is the opportunity to validate, and when necessary debunk, current practices using real-world experience aggregated in Big Data.”
Dr. Mitchell Hoffman, a researcher at the Yale School of Management, said "working with Evolv is a pleasure and a great opportunity. We are using big data and state-of-the-art econometrics to generate novel and often counter-intuitive insights about the forces that influence attrition and performance in the workplace." Dr. Hoffman has conducted research on the efficacy of training contracts and is currently exploring the impact of employee referral programs on worker retention and productivity.
Evolv and Yale researchers will initially explore the effects of management structures, employment practices, and employee relationships on workforce profitability and performance. Through compilation and analysis of large data sets acquired across a multitude of industries, job types and regions, Evolv and Yale researchers will unlock new actionable insights into workforce management and decisions.
Evolv harnesses the power of big data predictive analytics and machine learning to uncover and correct the inefficiencies that undermine the performance of global workforces. Evolv’s software-based analytics platform delivers actionable decision support throughout the employee lifecycle by identifying improvement areas and transforming core operational business processes to drive increased employee retention, productivity and engagement.
