Company URL: attensi.com

Company  Profile:Attensi is the world’s leading provider of Ai and Game-Based training - the most effective way to upskill your people with measurable impact on your KPIs. Engage your people with immersive 3D training, powered by the best insights from human psychology, technology, and gaming principles.

Whether on mobile, desktop, or VR, empower your people to master new skills with training they will want to complete and repeat. Recreate their working environments with advanced 3D graphics, realistic scenarios, and interactive dialogues with voice-acted avatars to test their knowledge. All in a safe, learning-by-doing environment.

Attensi has delivered Ai and Game-based training in over 150 countries, in more than 50 languages. Our customers include Circle K, BSH, Panera Bread, Travelers Insurance, Accenture, Kaiser Permanente, YMCA.

Areas of Specialization:Game-Based Training
Gamified Training
Mobile Training
Microlearning
LMS
LXP
Digital Adoption Platform

Products/Services & Solutions offered:
All Attensi solutions are designed to be repeated. Why? Because documented research proves that repetition is essential to learning new skills and behaviors and getting knowledge to stick. By contrast, if training only occurs once, after just one month up to 80% of learning is lost.

The game mechanics that underpin every Attensi solution are built with repetition in mind. They include engaging dialogues, immersive 3D graphics, memorable storytelling, captivating presentation, and competitive leaderboards.

Using these mechanics and best practice from human psychology and learning, Attensi solutions inspire users to repeat their training multiple times. In typical applications, trainees often complete their modules 4 or 5 times, even after gaining certification.

This level of engagement generates unrivalled data from the thousands of touchpoints in every training. These insights provide a comprehensive overview of your people’s progress in real time. The results can be tracked and measured against whatever KPIs matter to you. Use them to refine your training, improve any areas that show lower engagement, and spot any skills gaps.

We work closely with our customers to develop gamified training solutions that are tailored to their specific needs. Onboarding new employees, introducing new IT processes, replicating the behavior of best performers, HSE and compliance training are just a few examples of where customers have excelled using Attensi Ai and Game-based training.

“The difference with game-based training is it’s very interactive. It’s very immediate – you can get content out there very quickly. Traditional training can take 10 times longer to get content out there. If it’s important, you can say ‘you have 2 weeks to get this done’, and boom.”
-Paul Gorman President and CEO South Shore YMCA

Fit First® Technologies International Inc.

Company URL:  www.fitfirsttech.com

Company  Profile:
We’re on a mission to change the world of work.

We believe that hiring practices and career discovery should be human, simple, and cost effective; that hidden talent is everywhere, and opportunities should be open to all.

In the past, access to high-powered data analytics and employee screening and assessment tools were limited to Fortune 500 companies with big budgets. We’ve leveled the playing field by designing platforms that are scalable to companies of any size, in any industry. We’re proud to be making a difference across multiple fields, helping people from every corner of the workforce discover how Job Fit can transform careers, organizations, and the world.

Areas of Specialization:
The battle for talent is winnable.

Traditional recruitment methods aren’t serving you nor are they serving potential candidates. These days, hiring great people requires a more strategic approach. Our Job Fit tools target top predictors of success, leading you straight to the candidates who are most likely to mesh with your team, be engaged, and stick around.

Outsmarting your competitors starts with smarter recruitment. Lead your search with Fit First®.

Our products
Our Job Fit tools are designed to solve some of the biggest problems facing the workforce. We’ll let you in on a little secret: most of these problems can be traced back to fit.

TalentSorter®
Reference Getter®
Jobtimize®

Products/Services & Solutions offered:
These products look like a good fit for you.

These products look like a good fit for you.

1. TalentSorter®

TalentSorter® helps you hire people who are a good fit, faster. With the help of Fit First® Technology, TalentSorter® pre-screens applicants by measuring factors that have the highest correlation with on-the-job success. Once pre-screened, every applicant gets a FitScore®

Candidates with the highest FitScore® are the ones most likely to be a good fit with the role, manager, team, and company culture. And they’ll be waiting right at the top of your dashboard.

Nobody holds a Bachelor of Being Autonomous.

Education and experience are important, but they’re not necessarily the best predictors of success. FitScore® highlights key areas like communication, autonomy, and resilience that aren’t always emphasized in applications.

Forget cookie cutter questions, go custom.

Interviews are more effective when you ask the right questions. TalentSorter® provides you with detailed reports, including interview guides with suggested questions unique to each candidate’s profile.

Find great people in surprising packages.

By putting greater emphasis on Job Fit, the pool of candidates naturally widens for employers, while barriers evaporate for candidates with diverse backgrounds.

What’s with the FitScore®?

Stop hiring the résumé and firing the person. Ever hired someone who looked great on paper and aced the interview, only to flame out early? Education and experience are important but are simply not the most reliable predictors of success. Our FitScore® helps you identify the best people in the applicant pool based on their likelihood of success across four critical aspects of fit – role, manager, team and company culture. We dig deeper than your standard résumé reader.

With TalentSorter®, your position is effortlessly posted directly or easily integrated with your existing applicant tracking system. FitScore® highlights critical aspects of communication, autonomy and resilience that simply aren’t captured on other platforms. By measuring soft skills and behavioral traits, our technology does the upfront legwork by pointing out who your most desirable candidates are, and why.

The right questions lead you to the right people.

As if rifling through irrelevant résumés weren’t enough, interviews can be a huge time suck. With TalentSorter®, you’ll head into the interview process feeling confident and finish with your valuable time intact. Remember those impressive people with the high FitScores®? TalentSorter® generates unique Job Fit reports for each candidate, including custom interview questions based on their profile. Asking the right questions brings you closer to hiring the right fit.

Your shortcut to hiring the right people.

2. Reference Getter®

Put reference checks on autopilot.

References are a form of risk management and a critical piece of the full picture. Let’s face it – résumés and interviews are sales pitches. Candidates craft their message carefully, emphasizing only strengths and accomplishments. 85% of candidates fudge the truth a bit (or maybe a lot). Learning about a person from someone who’s already worked with them can uncover misrepresentations and give you the full 360° view.

The thing is, references have always been a pain to chase down. Reference Getter® saves your valuable time by automating the process for you and delivering results directly to your dashboard. Done.

Get off the phone (or just use it to watch cat videos).

Request references from your candidate, sit back, and let Reference Getter® get to work in the background. Candidates will invite their references to respond to your list of questions, and you’ll be able to view the invitation status as requested, in-progress, or declined. Once the reference is complete and submitted, you’ll receive a notification on your dashboard.

Step away from the cookie-cutter questions.

We’ll supply you with a template of questions, but feel free to customize. If you’re already using TalentSorter®, adapt the questions generated from your interview guide for your reference. This is a great way to cross-reference versions of events and get a clearer picture of your candidate.

Why are references so important?

People do tend to fluff up the content on their résumé, and COVID 19 made it difficult to interview people face-to-face. It’s much harder to get a reliable measure of the person on Zoom. That makes reference checking doubly important. Many things you may not notice in a remote interview could be revealed when checking references.

Your fast-track to checking references in one place.

3. Jobtimize®

Aptitude is evenly distributed, opportunity is not.

Jobtimize® optimizes regional employment ecosystems by taking an intensely person-centric approach to accurately matching each individual’s natural aptitude and behavioral profile with the educational and employment pathways to which they are best suited. Not based on what’s in their resume, but based on who they are, and what their full potential is. Jobtimize® takes all the friction out of matching talent with opportunity.

Build back better than better.

Policy decisions are designed with the best of intentions; however, employment and economic outcomes often rely on outdated systems and approaches. Build a workforce to be reckoned with using the technology that optimizes how talent gets deployed in a region.

Workforce development is our future.

Workforce shortages have never been more pressing. Economic stability depends on long-term thinking and a reliable approach. Jobtimize® uses cutting edge behavioral technology to better guide career development within the communities you support.

Measure what Matters Most.

Jobtimize® levels the playing field for applicants facing barriers to employment by turning outdated career guidance and hiring processes upside down and leading with behavioral fit first. We enable all the stakeholders in the employment ecosystem to focus on the person and their potential, unaffected by the limitations of their pedigree and whatever labels may have been attached to them.

Find remarkable people in surprising packages.

There’s a world of hidden talent out there, and we’re on a mission to help you find it. Jobtimize® introduces trainers and employers to pools of individuals who are already pre-screened and matched to their programs or jobs, while opening new doors to an even wider audience whose potential may have been historically overlooked or unrecognized.

Industries Serviced:
Fit First Technologies, proudly caters to a diverse range of industries, ensuring that our pre-screening assessment solutions are adaptable and effective for all. However, we have clients in the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) Sector that have been very successful. Fit First® is fully dedicated to every client and we are determined to serve up stronger performance and fatter margins in the fast-casual restaurant chain.

Working with MOTiV/GiANT has been a transformative experience for our business and our people. Through their expert management coaching and development programs, we've witnessed tangible growth and observable impact at every level. The 'X' factor that sets them apart is their unparalleled ability to tailor their strategies to our unique organizational needs, ensuring a customized and effective approach.

MOTiV/GiANT has proven to be invaluable partners, consistently delivering actionable insights and fostering a culture of continuous improvement. The impact on our leadership team and the overall dynamics of our organization has been both profound and lasting.

I highly recommend MOTiV/GiANT to any business seeking meaningful, tailored coaching and development solutions. Their approach goes beyond the conventional, making them the ideal choice for those who aspire to elevate their leadership and drive sustainable organizational growth.'
— Anthony Valletta, President, bartaco

Landon, with MOTiV, helped me navigate life beyond the sale of my company. We got clear on what success meant for me in this new phase and how to transition well so that I could move on effectively from the organization I built. He helped us have the discussions that had consistently tripped us up, managed egos, and helped very different agendas become more aligned. It wasn't without its bruises, but he was a trusted partner who helped me craft a game plan I'm executing now.'
— Jay Rollins, Chairman & CEO, JCR Capital

The work we've done with Landon and MOTiV has been transformational: for individual, for the effectiveness of our teams, and really for our entire organization. Leaders show up with intentionality, make less messes, get more out of our people, and miss less opportunities. The MOTiV team's presence provides a way to do the hard work of building functional workplace trust. The speed and efficiency of trust is a real thing. We had competent department leaders that were experts in their realm, but we weren’t unlocking the cross functional ideas and efficiencies of operations. Landon and his team helped give us the language, the leadership and the essential repetitions to become much more effective. It's difficult to describe how stark a contrast there is in the way our teams can operate.

In a market cycle where we are pulling back on a lot of expenses, our leadership and employees are finding creative ways to keep MOTiV engaged because there is no question about the value they add.'
— Landon Hoover, CEO, Hartford Homes

When it came to what we were trying to accomplish and how we would go about it, we were running in a number of different directions amongst our leadership team. Landon provided the structure and direction our team needed to, for the first time, really clarify how difficult our customers have it and how we specifically engage that difficulty. Our leadership team came away able to communicate what we do with 'one voice' to the rest of the organization. It has already allowed us to set ourselves apart in the marketplace. So much so that when other brokerages were cutting back we grew by nearly 150% during COVID. Attracting the right talent has only been one of the easiest ways to measure MOTiV's impact on our team.
— Dave Ness, CEO, Thrive Real Estate

Sunny Day Fund

By leveraging Sunny Day Fund’s embedded behavioral economic techniques such as loss aversion, employers reward liquid savings balances, customized to their unique workforce.

As a result, Sunny Day Fund has enabled employees to build $2,000+ in savings in the first year, lower loans & withdrawals from retirement plans, decrease turnover, and improve self-reported mental health.

Client Testimonials
From Paul Tuennerman of Sticky's The Finger Joint:

"Like most chains our size, we made an admirable attempt to support our Restaurants with in-house IT. It was a nightmare. We spent more time mediating fights between the Operations and IT Teams than fixing the problems. The reality is that, at our size, the need for a qualified solution for IT outweighs our budget. It simply was not feasible to build out a Department of the size we needed.

So, we augmented our IT Department with Science on Call.

While this helped, it highlighted just how inept we were at supporting our Restaurants.

So I called Andy.

We worked through a process where we could draw down our in-house IT Team while ramping up with SOC. Today, we have a single former GM with a knack for IT who serves as their eyes, ears, and, most importantly, hands supporting our Restaurant Operations.

I am sure you’re in a similar position: IT matters. Today, technology plays an increasingly important role in what we do. Getting this wrong was going to suck.

Andy, Ken, Luisa, and their team did an incredible job transitioning administrative control of our various platforms. They went through the configurations and integrations of each platform and provided insight into best practices so we could maximize the benefits. We went from having a response time of weeks to hours, and frankly, I can’t point out a situation where they couldn’t solve the problem before the end of the day. They provide support when we roll out our limited-time offerings and advice as we look to move into a new platform. Sometimes, I forget they’re a vendor; they feel like part of the team.

Please get in touch with me directly if I can answer any questions about SOC or my favorite side items."

"The best way to put it, it's the soul of our company." - Torchy's Tacos

"Engagement has skyrocketed since adopting Wisetail. Since implementing a Spanish option in 2022, logins to the Salata training program have increased by 103 percent, and module completions increased by 38 percent. The benefits extend to retention as well—especially in the difficult-to-replace position of general manager. In the midst of ongoing labor shortages last year, half of Salata’s 22 franchise owners experienced no GM turnover whatsoever... Invest in your people, they will invest in you." - Salata

“Our LMS was an essential employee. That’s where all of our messaging was. We wouldn’t have landed where we are now, after Covid, without our LMS.” - Bagel Brands

"We aspire to make a community where our team members are engaged and trained in a way that builds an extraordinary experience. Wisetail is central as we enter a new era of training, employee learning and ongoing efforts to communicate our core values to our team communities and guests." - Caribou Coffee

“Assigning tasks holds people accountable and gets everyone aligned with what our brand expectations and standards are, which builds a culture of consistency. [Wisetail's] OnTrack is a much more robust tool than we ever envisioned. We wanted to use it as more of an operational assessment tool that our field team could use to verify standards and execution across the brand. Now we can score how well our restaurants are meeting our standards, whether that is with fresh food, friendly service, or clean restrooms. It gives operators a clear picture of how they are aligning with our standards.” - Slim Chickens

Wishlist

Company URL: www.enjoywishlist.com

Company  Profile:
Humanizing work to spark engagement!

Wishlist lets you reward your employees with thousands of localized offerings and curated physical goods, and helps to reinforce the core values that drive your mission through day-to-day recognition. Our bespoke marketplace encourages your teams to select a personally meaningful reward delivered at just the right time.

We believe that corporate gifting should apply the same principles and thought as we take in our personal lives. No more transactional attempts at providing a great reward for a team member’s organizational impact, or reaching a significant milestone. Wishlist helps you know your employees on a deeper level and gift with purpose.

Areas of Specialization:
Onboarding preferences - We are able to capture employee rewards and communication preferences during onboarding. This allows reward senders the ability to give the perfect gift at the right time to magnify its impact.

Integrations and SSO - Wishlist can integrate with existing software to provide a seamless experience for our clients.

Curated Marketplace - We lead with experiences. Our marketplace lets employees redeem from an incredible array of experiential rewards, like live sporting events, spa days, food tours, adventures, and more. We also give access to thousands of physical products that can be shipped door to door.

Products/Services & Solutions Offered
Recognition Feed - Our recognition strategy is to clearly define how an individual’s work impacts the whole. Our software will help reinforce the behaviors that meaningfully support the mission. Wishlist makes it easy for everyone to show and receive recognition on a single, visible platform. Our approach is driven by your core values - each appreciation post must tie in one (or more) of your core values in order to make an explicit connection between the action and its organizational impact.

We wanted to give our employees something they want to have. "I went to a cooking class my company paid for, vs here's a giftcard I got and don't know what to do with"

Lineup.ai

Company URL: www.lineup.ai

Company  Profile:
Lineup takes your historical data from the POS and combines it with our future-looking local demand data around weather, events, TV schedules, foot traffic, etc. to produce 4 weeks' worth of sales forecasts at a time that are updated daily with any new data we receive. We then combine those sales forecasts with a location-specific labor allowance to help your team build optimized schedules. We can push the schedule back to the POS for clock in/clock out enforcement in most cases.

Areas of Specialization:
Our goal with Lineup.ai is to empower owners, operators, and managers to make more informed decisions with reliable information and give them time back in their day. We also want to improve the experience of restaurant workers with better scheduling, more predictable shifts, and easier communication.

Products/Services & Solutions offered:
Sales, labor and item level forecasts powered by machine learning. Scheduling platform to help restaurants manage to a labor percentage of sales and an employee facing app for restaurant employees to see their schedule, enter general availability, request time off and shift swap.

Client & Client Testimonials:

Michael Schatten, VP of Operations at Carrot Express- "Lineup.ai significantly dropped payroll for our 17 restaurants by about 300 basis points. Annualized, we should see a 1.1- 1.3 million dollar savings."

John "JP" Bimler, Training and Development Manager at Cabo Bobs- “Implementing Lineup.ai was as good if not better than the sales pitch. Which is very rare,” JP said. “They have valued our input and implemented a lot of our ideas in better ways than we thought of. The Lineup.ai team even takes the time to talk one-on-one with our management teams. After a few months of watching the sales forecasting we noticed that Lineup.ai was within 2% or 3% of actual sales."
