Structural People Match recommends colleagues with skills and capabilities in common, making searching across complex organizations easier than ever.

St. Paul, MN. — (October 30, 2018) — Structural today announced the launch of People Match, which provides a modern solution to the problem organizations face aligning colleagues of similar skills with projects and opportunities. This is the first of several features built on data science that the company will add to its platform which powers internal people networks for organizations worldwide.

Structural People Match makes internal talent searches more dynamic and intuitive using data science. Structural now assesses employee profile data and calculates a similarity score for every person in an organization. This new capability builds on Structural’s robust ability to find and connect the right people at the right time based on skills, experience, and availability.

“Each of us benefits from data science when searching for a product to buy on Amazon or a show to binge on Netflix, but at work we lack similar capabilities to find and connect with our colleagues,” said Scott Burns, CEO & co-founder of Structural. “Structural clients can now use similar data science technology to empower their people and teams.”

People Match produces a list of employees with similar skills and experiences that can be further reviewed to find the right person at the right time. Structural customers will begin to see similarity scores on their teammates’ profiles as we roll out the feature this fall.

“We have a breadth of capabilities across our agency brands, and identifying the right internal resource for our customer projects is critical,” said Keith Wolf, Chief Creative Officer at Modern Climate. “At the time we pitch a client we need to quickly know what talent aligns to the job, and who’s available to do the work. We prefer to insource versus outsource, and Structural helps me more quickly find the resources internally to make that possible.”

With People Match, individuals can see which jobs are held by people with similar skills elsewhere in the organization. Leaders can gain powerful insights to their talent and understand similarities among their top performers. When coupled with employee utilization and availability data, everyone in an organization can reach across geographic and functional silos to find the full range of talent available for each project.
