OneModel takes the clients data, as is, and integrates it into a customizable set of People Analytics.

One of the pioneers in figuring out how to effectively use data in HR was InfoHRM, an Australian firm purchased by and integrated into SuccessFactors almost a decade ago (2010). Founded in 1982, InfoHRM helped clients develop business-driven talent measurement. In those days, computing power and storage were precious resources.

OneModel, based in Austin, is a direct descendant of InfoHRM. It was founded in 2014 by former key employees who went on to spend the interim years at SuccessFactors. With deep experience helping clients understand and work with data, they concluded that clients need greater flexibility to use all of their data to solve big problems.

OneModel fits neatly into the Data Workbench bucket. Neither built from scratch nor limited in focus to a single point solution, the tool encourages its clients to innovate in their use of analytics. OneModel is designed to integrate the entire range of data sources within an HR Department. (Some have as many as 125 different software tools.)

Following a simple data integration process, the user may create predictive models for any subset of the data. Control is in the hands of the user. Modifying the templates is easy and encouraged. OneModel also supports the use of external data models and data sets for tasks like workforce planning, curriculum development, pipeline analysis, commute time calculations, demographic comparisons, or stock market analysis of competing employers.

Paychex currently uses OneModel to build analytics for its own internal use. “We leverage OneModel’s solution to feed more than 25 sets of internal HR data into one place. This has been a very beneficial partnership for us.” says Laurie Zaucha, VP of HR and Organizational Development, Paychex.

There are two main paths to Analytics literacy and working processes for HR data. The first is templated toolkits for specific purposes that can give you a quick start and repeatable/benchmarkable processes. OneModel represents the alternative: a complete set of tools for designing and building your own nuanced analytics, predictions, and applications.

After years of promise, HR Analytics and Predictive tools are coming into the sunlight.
