Cloud-based human capital and technology services provider Alight Solutions has forged a multi-year agreement with Socially Determined, a social risk data and analytics company, to transform employee wellbeing through comprehensive social risk data and analytics.

Through the partnership, Alight Solutions aims to further extend its capability to help employers to provide tailored employee support through the Alight Worklife platform and Alight services ecosystem.

Besides, the collaboration will offer exclusive access to Socially Determined’s predictive metrics centred on social determinants of health (SDOH).

Furthermore, the agreement will help to strengthen the Alight Worklife platform as an advanced employee engagement platform driven by artificial intelligence (AI).

The platform is also supported by a growing set of internal and external data assets to support customers to achieve their human resources (HR) and wellbeing goals, said Alight Solutions.

Socially Determined CEO and co-founder Trenor Williams said: “Socially Determined’s unique, data-driven, analytics-first approach to quantifying and visualising community-level SDOH and individual-level social risk factors creates a holistic, actionable and inclusive environment for employers by empowering them to visualise and understand SDOH risk exposure and social care support needs for their employees – in real-time, at scale, and at an industry-leading degree of resolution.”

The partnership will also allow Alight Solutions to develop a clearer picture of each individual employee, enabling employers to better predict unaddressed requirements at the individual-level.

It will also help employers in significantly improving relevancy by prioritising the content, benefits, and engagement strategies available to educate, support, and guide employees.

Alight Solutions vice president and experience inclusion and equity leader Ali Cusic said: “Alight believes that the experiences and journeys we help employers create need to help employees reach their full health potential, while helping organisations achieve their goals through increased employee engagement.

“Our partnership with Socially Determined amplifies Alight’s ability to provide clients with additional insights into employees behaviours and needs, including vulnerable populations that are traditionally harder to engage.”
