One Model’s Story Behind Workforce Analytics

One Model’s founding team has spent years in the workforce analytics space, beginning their journey together at Infohrm (since acquired by SuccessFactors, then SAP). While working with hundreds of organizations, they saw customers struggle with the complexities of HR data to assemble it and generate any meaningful insight from it.

So in late 2014, Chris Butler, David Wilson, and Matthew Wilton founded One Model with the mission of making an organization’s most complex data accessible and valuable for all. They built a team and platform around the vision of business leaders seamlessly interacting with workforce data to unlock value in their people and their organizations.

Today, One Model is trusted by large organizations who want to work with a team of HR data experts who are passionate about your success!
