Why Aura, Why Now? Why Understanding the State of the Workforce is Vital

The pulse of a business is its people, and it beats strongest when a company's employment practices resonate with the state of the wider workforce. Aura Workforce Intelligence, a pioneering SaaS platform for Workforce Analytics and Insights, recognizes that understanding human capital's intricacies is more vital now than ever. Here's why you should pay attention.

The Challenge with Current Practices

In the not-so-distant past, gaining actionable insights into the workforce landscape was like trying to solve a puzzle in the dark. Traditional methods for collecting workforce data were cumbersome, time-intensive, and costly. Companies scraped data, made calls, and utilized rudimentary tools—all leading to limited insights at best. Suffice it to say, the methods were as dated as they were inefficient.

Today, accurate and granular workforce intelligence is of the utmost importance. The job market is in a state of flux, and with it, employees' skill sets, demands, and expectations are evolving rapidly. Companies must evolve in understanding and approaching this aspect of their business, investments, or clients.

Where Aura Workforce Intelligence Comes In

Enter Aura Workforce Intelligence: a state-of-the-art tool primarily used to inform strategic investment decisions and identify opportunities for creating value. Born from Bain & Company, one of the world's leading consulting firms, and propelled by state-of-the-art machine learning and artificial intelligence, Aura offers a comprehensive analysis of workforce data, covering millions of companies and billions of professional work profiles worldwide.

Aura's spin-out from Bain is a testament to the nurturing and visionary support of a global consulting powerhouse. As Aura embarks on its journey as an independent entity, it carries the legacy and wisdom imparted by Bain. This transition marks a significant milestone, and the technology, honed and battle-tested through real-world business challenges, is now ready to navigate its own path.
