Empowering the fourth generation of human capability management solutions to the workforce market, Almas Insight is helping to provide employers and employees with the data they need for better, more efficient placement in the job market

SEATTLE - August 9, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Almas Insight, a company that provides data-driven solutions for organizations to measure needed human skills in the job market, today announces the addition of Michael Griffiths as an advisor. Griffiths is a principal at Deloitte Consulting LLP with Deloitte's Workforce Development practice in North America. With this addition, Almas will be able to leverage Griffiths' deep experience and industry understanding of how organizations hire more strategically, reorganize more efficiently and compete more effectively with objective, data-driven employee insight.

Griffiths brings more than 20 years of experience in leading key programs for market-leading clients, with work across industries — ranging from mergers and acquisitions, leadership development, and workforce transformations for leading firms. He is a thought leader across workforce transformation and has won industry recognition including both the Brandon Hall and Chief Learning Officer awards. Prior to Deloitte, Griffiths was the Global Strategy Lead for Learning Solutions at Accenture. Griffiths' experience helping global organizations transform and adapt their talent strategies to new market conditions by utilizing cutting-edge technology is virtually unparalleled.

At Deloitte, an organization with differentiated services and solutions in learning, leadership development, knowledge management, and skills-based transformations, Griffiths works with global clients to build high-performance businesses that drive growth and optimization through talent and learning. He is also the lead for Deloitte's "Human Capital Trends" for 2022. All of this experience combined makes him a welcomed advisor to Almas, a company centered on utilizing human capital data to better manage and develop organizational workforces. 

Almas Insight offers a cutting-edge, immersive, game-based product that combines contextual video, situational simulation, and cognitive tests to measure more than a dozen high-demand human skills fast. The company was formed to bring this decade of research to businesses and was promptly funded by Learn Capital — the world's largest human development venture fund. Through research conducted by the University of Washington, Almas demonstrated with a nationally representative sample that users broadly prefer this measurement method. More importantly, it helps to reduce socioeconomic biases inherent in our current employment system and has seen validity exceeding all other methods tested. 

"Adding a human capital leader like Michael Griffiths to our advisory board is a clear next step for our work at Almas and will accelerate our ability to help global organizations," said Rob Savette, co-founder of Almas Insight. "We have an outstanding technology solution that can help employees while simultaneously saving organizations significant amounts of capital. As organizations face the extraordinary talent challenges presented by the current economic climate, our complete focus will be on getting our solution into the hands of as many human capital and executive leaders as quickly as possible."

"Most organizations are facing critical new workforce challenges the last few years. These new challenges require new workforce solutions," said Griffiths. "Human skill measurement is one of the key trends I see as necessary in this market transformation. Workplace research has shown this is a critical component to hiring, success, development, and, critically, tenure for employees."

FentCheck Founders Named Fast Company’s ‘Most Creative People in Business 2022’ for Fentanyl Overdose Harm Reduction

The renowned business magazine Fast Company honors a small group of entrepreneurs for their innovation and global impact annually

OAKLAND, Calif. - August 9, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Fast Company today announced its 14th annual list of the Most Creative People in Business, recognizing FentCheck founders Alison Heller and Dean Shold for their impact on reducing accidental fentanyl overdoses in the United States.

Each year, Fast Company honors individuals making a cultural impact via bold achievements that have never been accomplished before in their chosen fields. These influential and diverse engineers, executives, filmmakers, activists, designers, research scientists, and founders, among others, are leading with creativity during one of the most challenging times in history.

"We're honored that Fast Company has chosen to recognize FentCheck's innovative work in harm reduction," said FentCheck co-founder Alison Heller. "FentCheck takes a compassionate and creative approach, inspired by the AIDS activists who put condoms in bathrooms at bars and clubs in the 80s. The abstinence-only approach never worked for sex, and it doesn't work for substance use. Our mission is to get fentanyl test strips and other life-saving resources into as many venues as possible, and this award will help us reach more people." 

"There are a lot of misconceptions about people who use drugs," said FentCheck co-founder Dean Shold. "But at the end of the day, they come from all types of backgrounds. They're cooks, bankers, servers, doctors, students, office workers, first responders, you name it. Fentanyl doesn't give people second chances, but FentCheck does. Our goal is to destigmatize the resources that are saving lives and make them accessible." 

Since its founding in 2019, FentCheck has distributed over 1,500 fentanyl test strips every week to over 50 venues in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York, Portland, and Reno. In addition to this important work, FentCheck makes Narcan and Narcan training available to staff at venues around the U.S., and frequently works with legislators to advocate for statewide legislation supporting harm reduction, thus reducing fentanyl overdose deaths in their congressional districts. FentCheck is also a partner of the harm reduction program at the University of California, Berkeley. 

About FentCheck

FentCheck's mission is to decrease the overwhelming number of accidental fentanyl overdoses by providing life-saving resources like Fentanyl Test Strips and Narcan within the community. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. FentCheck can be found online at www.FentCheck.org
