PeopleMap translates people's skills and experiences onto the competencies needed to thrive. Unlike traditional skills assessment tools, we don’t simply measure people's responses to a series of questions. Instead, we leverage existing and available data about an individual (Think resume, LinkedIn, ERP system data) to deliver an intelligent, customized visualization of how an individuals skillset applies to the future of work.
Our model, is founded on the work of Dean Schwartz of the Stanford GSE. His studies have shown that self-explanation and visualizations are powerful strategies to help people learn more deeply about themselves and construct enduring understandings.
Results from our 2018 randomized control trial with the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce highlighted that those who used a PeopleMap in their Workforce Development journey used nearly 3 times more skills to self-describe than those in the control group, and they were more likely to be recommended for a job or internship. Additionally, in a different 2018 study in partnerships with SNAP Inc, 75% of participants found PeopleMap very or extremely helpful in their new job search.
