Our Evolution

Our Journey to Providing Better Insights

Activ8 was the first company in the world to pioneer predictive analytics in the HR space. Activ8 has evolved to provide an analytic layer on existing HR, HR Tech and Payroll software solutions.

Activ8 believe HR is instrumental to better business results and competitive advantage. To achieve this, the HR function must support line managers to understand workforce issues and decisions that affect business challenges. Activ8 partners with HR, Payroll and other HR software suppliers to turn their data into insights.

Our product brings relevant data to the forefront so busy managers can focus their time on decision making and other necessary duties.
