How General Motors Can Use Data Analytics to Retain Employees

The Stratifyd Signals platform used AI-powered text analytics software to generate data visualization tools for current and former General Motors employee reviews on Indeed.com. GM employs more than 216,000 individuals across the world, making employee retention and turnover rate a major concern. The people analytics provided by Stratifyd Signals created a clear picture of employee satisfaction to help the company effect greater change in company policy and keep more of their employees at work.

 
 

The results revealed five key areas, that determined whether employees did or didn’t stay with the company.
