The Company’s Survey Data Shows Peers are No. 1 Source for HR Leaders

Charlotte, NC — April 26, 2022

Triggered by the global pandemic and the Great Resignation, human resources (HR) departments everywhere are receiving extensive attention, and in many cases, investments to help remedy recruitment and retention woes. To help further navigate this environment, isolved has launched its People Heroes Community where customers using isolved People Cloud can connect and collaborate all while earning and redeeming points for consuming content, communicating with others and championing their experiences.


According to a new survey from isolved, a G2 Leader in Human Resource Management Systems for a tenth consecutive quarter, HR leaders are turning to their peers for most of their HR advice, news and recommendations. When 500 HR leaders were asked what their go-to source of professional information is the top-three answers were: peer-to-peer platform LinkedIn (34%), peers directly (18%) and HR associations, also made up of peers (16%).


“People trust people,” said Lina Tonk, Senior Vice President of Marketing at isolved. “When people have personal or professional challenges, they want to hear from other people who have faced a similar challenge, what they used to solve it and what they learned from it too. The launch of the isolved People Heroes Community is another way for isolved to enable our customers to exceed their personal and professional goals. The People Heroes Community provides a vibrant space for customers to source information and validation while learning how to maximize their current isolved investment and future innovation – all in a fun, interactive and gamified way.”


The isolved People Heroes Community is now active with pre-registered People Heroes, isolved’s customer advocacy program, already completing over 400 challenges (ranging from providing peer answers to participating in case studies). In addition to over 1,200 discussion engagements to date, isolved customers are sharing how they have solved their challenges and made the most of opportunities:

It is by sharing experiences like this that isolved expects to become invaluable for its customer community of People Heroes. This is particularly true with the amount of innovation that is set to happen within HR and their wider organizations as the future of work continues to evolve at pace. In the
same survey of 500 HR leaders, 45% of respondents indicated their HR budget is increasing this year, which makes sense as 75% of respondents said employee experience has become a broader company initiative. isolved People Heroes now have a place to talk through those changes.
