Our unique suite of digital tools - which include our Twisit®, Living Analytics® and FlowOS® platforms – are able to gather data that objectively gauges the mindsets and behaviors of employees that are critical to performance.
SQN’s proprietary AI-powered change management solutions can then use this data to map out an organization’s unique Performance Signature®, its ideal cultural identity required to achieve business objectives. This radically innovative approach provides a people performance operating system that can be scaled across large organizations to ignite significant performance improvement.
Using gamified and behavior measurement tools, coupled with the power of AI and predictive algorithms, we can directly link the behaviors of employees to business outcomes. Through a process of intensive but objective data gathering, we construct a digital twin of our clients’ business to reveal their unique organizational persona. We then actively train a predictive algorithm to guide them towards the ideal cultural identity required for business success. Using online dashboards, machine learning and change recommendations informed by behavioral science, we gradually shift behaviors in individuals, teams and business units to achieve sustainable, long-term performance gains at scale.
