Internal mobility for staff, upskilling, leadership development, and talent management are all currently hot buttons for talent-focused leaders. They all require a clear view of the internal workforce (both contingent and full-time) and connections to strategic pools of talent, like corporate alumni. UK-based Profinda is the latest startup to raise VC in the pursuit of providing solutions that address these hot buttons. ProFinda provides a workplace optimization technology platform that uses machine learning to build a dynamic and detailed map to understand the skills and knowledge of the total workforce. They aim to allocate the optimal workforce by ensuring the right person is intelligently connected to the right projects and opportunities based on their skills, interests, cost and availability.
