PeopleAdmin’s Faculty Information System Wins 2022 BIG Innovation Award
Austin, TX—January 11, 2022— Today, PeopleAdmin was named a winner in the 2022 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group. This annual business awards program recognizes organizations, products, and people that are bringing new ideas to life in innovative ways.
The Innovation Award honors PeopleAdmin’s Faculty Information System, a low- to no-touch solution designed to decrease administrative burden on faculty. This new solution is part of PeopleAdmin’s HigherEd Platform, and is designed as a centralized hub for all faculty data, activities, and professional development — all necessary information for achieving a promotion or tenure.
“We are excited to be recognized for our innovation supporting HigherEd faculty. The Faculty Information System relieves faculty administrative burden, giving them time back and offering insights no one has seen before,” said Rishi Rana, General Manager of PeopleAdmin. “This recognition affirms the importance of our mission to offer ground-breaking analytic insights to higher education institutions by connecting faculty and student outcomes.”
As recognized by the Business Intelligence Group, this innovation is significant. Greater than 50% of HigherEd institutions still use paper-based performance and promotion processes. Faculty achievements drive growth at institutions, but faculty activity reporting is time-intensive and takes focus away from more critical work with students and research. When reporting is easier for faculty, the administration gets the information they need and faculty can focus on what really matters. Administrative intelligence in turn empowers leaders to make more strategic, data-driven decisions for the individual faculty member, the department, and campus-wide – fueling efficiency and impacting student outcomes. With better insight into teaching, research, grants, and publications, an institution can streamline its promotion and tenure process, gain transparency around EEO statistics, and see the complete picture to better promote its academic excellence. And with PeopleAdmin’s connected platform ecosystem, data flows seamlessly between departments.
“Innovation is driving growth in the global economy,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring PeopleAdmin as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”
