Beyond Innovation TV Sat Down with Plum CEO Caitlin MacGregor to Discuss Plum's Methods for Maximizing Employee Innovation


Developing employee’s talents is critical for business success, but it’s easier said than done. The data around what drives, energizes, and drains your employees is often hidden. 

Why is it so difficult for employers to identify and nurture these skills?

It’s a big question with a straightforward answer: it’s hard to really see the human side of employees. Soft skills can be hard to measure, and the data around what drives, energizes, and drains employees is subjective and often hidden.

Plum reveals this valuable data by measuring each employee’s innate talents using proven Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology and provides organizations with a scientifically proven data set that allows them to fully understand the human side of each candidate and employee.

In the video below, watch Caitlin MacGregor, CEO & Co-Founder of Plum, explain how measuring innate talents empowers companies to set their employees up to thrive over the long term by understanding what areas drive employees and what drain them. She shares that the key to optimally matching people to jobs where they’ll thrive is to quantify the behaviors that are necessary to succeed in a role.
