Workforce data has started to gain more traction within general business practices. This type of data can be difficult to understand. Revelio Labs is a leading provider of workforce data and can help you use the information we find to your advantage.

Workforce Data: What Is It? How Can I Use It?

Workforce data is the combination of the information collected regarding the workplace environment. Our process combines several types of data into one location to create a single large HR database. There are four main areas where we collect data from. They include:

  • Current and past employee reviews: This includes both scores and typed reviews.
  • Organization data (firmographics): This data is company specific. You can find mapping to financial identifiers, subsidiary-parent relationships of companies, and industry classifications.
  • Information from government data: We gather public information from the government such as census data, voter registration, immigration filings, and social security. We also collect global and domestic published labor statistics like posting dates, job descriptions, and position salaries.
  • Professional profiles: These are profiles that are found online. We collect dates of employment, companies worked at, titles achieved, education achieved, skills acquired, and other information found on full-time employees' profiles.
