Alight Integrates Data and Artificial Intelligence to Transform the HR Experience and Accelerate Business Outcomes

Alight | April 12, 2021

Alight Worklife, an enterprise technology platform that drives measurable benefit through highly personalized interactions with employees, was unveiled today by Alight Solutions, a leading cloud-based provider of integrated digital human resources and business solutions.

Alight Worklife brings Alight's industry-leading technology into a single platform to shape employee experiences and drive improved results for employers and their employees. Employees can conveniently view and interact with their HR and benefits applications with Alight Worklife at any time and from any place. Employers, for their part, will use analytics and AI to deliver personalized support to employees, which increases engagement, efficiency, and retention across the enterprise.

Greater value for employees

Alight Worklife's suite of web-based tools is combined with the mobile app to provide employees with a unified digital experience. Alight Worklife utilizes a powerful data engine and artificial intelligence to provide personalized HR and benefits recommendations to people's preferred channel or device, based on their life situations and engagement. This enables employees to make informed choices and make the most of the employer benefits available to them.

“Employers have a unique opportunity to assist their employees who face a constant barrage of information in their digitally-driven lives, but struggle to grasp what's important and how to act on it,” said Colin Brennan, Alight's chief product strategy and services officer. “Alight Worklife aggregates, surfaces, and personalizes data in a manner that engages employees at the point of need and assists them in making better choices about their health, wealth, and wellbeing.”

Transformative results for organizations

Alight Worklife provides companies with data-driven insights into how employees engage with HR and their benefits, that employers may use to improve employee experiences and tie them to transformative results. Employers may compare themselves to industry benchmarks using Alight's human capital and business data, which is handled by over 4,300 companies and 30 million employees and their family members.

“Organizations continue to quickly invest in transformation, but many aren't making significant improvements in employee experiences, so it's becoming increasingly clear that much of that spending is wasted,” said Greg Goff, Alight's chief product and technology officer. “Alight Worklife provides valuable perspectives into how employee decisions and behaviors affect top-and bottom-line performance for employers looking for better productivity and efficiency.”

Scalable solutions for enterprise growth

Alight Worklife is the platform that drives Alight's three main cloud-based solutions, which are built to scale and address the specific needs of companies and their employees:

Health Cloud – Alight manages benefits, navigates the healthcare system, and offers personalized assistance to employees to help them make better, more cost-effective health choices for themselves and their families. Organizations can reduce healthcare costs, monitor indirect costs, and increase overall compensation package satisfaction by providing a happier and more informed workforce.

Wealth Cloud – Alight's intelligent, highly personalized tools help employees manage day-to-day financial responsibilities and save for retirement. Organizations can reduce employees' financial stress and create and maintain a healthy workforce by integrating the whole financial image of their employees' lives, from daily budgeting to handling life events.

Payroll Cloud – Alight's new modern payroll systems ensure that employees are paid correctly, on schedule, and via their preferred platform, like digital wallets. Organizations may also use AI and robotic process automation to thoroughly review global pay data while meeting all regulatory criteria.
