Whiteman’s entry explored the development and functionality of Performica’s software and the company’s position within the people analytics technology (PAT) market. “This case study is valuable not just for the people analytics community, but for entrepreneurs and executives who might have the opportunity to create a startup from within a larger company,” said Whiteman. “For HR leaders, the case highlights the importance of using software to show how work happens in an organization.”

“I am thrilled that Performica’s unique approach is being recognized. Heather has done an incredible job telling our story, and I hope it inspires HR professionals everywhere to pursue progressive human-centric solutions for their organizations – even if they have to create them themselves,” commented Furman.
