“It’s not you, it’s me.” That’s not true. It’s both of you.
Finding the right match for the right job is hard. Article after article will tell you the “One question Google asks All employees” – but it doesn’t work. The lack of a culture fit continues to be a major reason that employment situations don’t last. The resulting turnover is expensive and difficult on the company and the employee. HR Data Solutions takes a data driven approach to making job and cultural fit a science, not black magic. This is not a job board or a better set of interview questions. This is what happens when you use 21st century data science to solve one of the most challenging problems in the world.

Jeremy Littlejohn, CEO of HR Data Solutions, has been working on making data more actionable since 2007. As a founder of RISC Networks, he has 11 years of experience building and scaling software and analytics businesses. HR Data Solutions is the result of years of working to solve hiring problems and become more confident in the people decisions of a growing company.
