The pandemic and recent social justice protests have challenged all of us to not only imagine a new future but to work toward it. Frida Polli, CEO and co-founder of Workday Ventures’ portfolio company, pymetrics, stated it very well in her recent blog post when she identified the movement toward equity and inclusion, and the global pandemic, as a call to “inspire unprecedented progress.”
The pymetrics’ technology hits at the heart of what will make our workplaces better, more diverse, and more inclusive. The company offers a talent matching platform that uses a unique dataset, captured through a series of behavioral science-based exercises that objectively measure cognitive, social, and behavioral attributes, and ethical artificial intelligence (AI) to match individuals with their best-fit job. It removes inherent bias from the hiring process to more accurately and fairly match the right people to the right jobs.
In advance of Polli’s upcoming talk at the Collision technology conference, I spoke to her about the impact of recent events on hiring, redeployment, and skills as companies increasingly focus on diversity, inclusion, human wellness, and creating the best teams and companies possible.
