Text-based data sources are a key factor for any organization to understand the "whys"

Finding committed employees is one of public and private organizations’ top priorities. MeaningCloud can help extract insights from the employees' feedback with People Analytics, a text analytics solution for human resources.

Listening to the Voice of the Employee by systematically collecting, managing and acting on the employee feedback on a variety of valuable topics is essential. Since everyone wants to understand employees better, text-based data sources are a key factor for any organization to understand the "whys" and act on them to make improvements.


Most promising areas of text analytics for Human Resources

Manually extracting ideas from text is tedious and expensive at best and impossible because of the large volume at worst.

Voice of the Employee

Voice of the Employee collects the needs, wishes, hopes, and preferences of the employees of a given company. VoE considers specific needs, such as salaries, career, health, and retirement, as well as implicit requirements to satisfy the employee and gain the respect of colleagues and managers.

Open-ended questions in surveys

Open questions are one of the most effective ways to gather employee opinions; they offer them an open forum to make suggestions and present innovative ideas.

CV analysis

Going through hundreds of resumes is not an easy task. MeaningCloud’s Text Analytic approach helps recruiters to identify which candidate suits best the requirements of the company.

Exit interviews

An exit interview is a survey taken by someone who is leaving an organization. The analysis results provide valuable information that can help improve turnover, optimize the recruitment process and hiring, reduce absences, improve innovation, maintain performance, and reduce possible conflicts.
