An attribute is a distinguishing skill, experience or quality that is an inherent part of someone’s person.
Attributes can be tangible, such as whether someone is an ‘open source contributor’, ‘past founder’, ‘female’, ‘has a PhD’ or ‘builds diverse teams’, as well as intangible, such as whether someone has ‘entrepreneurial spirit’, ‘embodies the company values’ or is a ‘go-getter’.
Searching for people used to be based on a set of keywords applied to user-defined resumes. This process is limited and inaccurate; Only 8% of resumes are filled out with the right set of searchable keywords and user-defined resumes contain unverified information that is not triangulated with other data sources. With Findem, these limitations no longer exist. You can search for people based on their attributes, rather than keywords and every attribute is verified and triangulated across multiple data sources.
Our library of 1M+ attributes are formed from people data and are the building blocks of People Intelligence. They offer a holistic, data-informed picture of each individual that can be used, for example, to surface unbiased insights into individuals or teams, benchmark against competitors, and identify high-quality, diverse talent with the exact attributes you need to fill your talent gaps.
