HRTech Interview with Samer Saab, Founder and CEO at Explorance


Brief our audience about Explorance.

Founded in 2003, Explorance supports more than 20 million people in their individual journeys of purpose, growth, and impact. As the leading provider of People Insight Solutions, Explorance empowers organizations with actionable decision-making by measuring students’ and employees’ needs, expectations, skills, knowledge, and competencies. Explorance facilitates continuous improvement and accelerates the insight-to-action cycle leading to personal growth and organizational agility. Headquartered in Montreal with business units in Chicago, Chennai, Melbourne, Amman, and London, Explorance works with 25% of the Fortune 100 and 25% of the top Higher Education institutions, including 8 of the world’s top 10 business schools. The company has clients in more than 50 countries.

How does the organization encourage students and employees across their journey of learning, development, and productivity in life?

Our mission, at Explorance, is to support people in making the most of their journey of growth, impact, and purpose in life. Today, we are able to positively impact the lives of about 20 million people. I hope that we will soon do so for 1 billion.

We also believe that industry and education have a shared responsibility, and a duty to closely collaborate, in the raising of the future change-makers of this world. The earlier we can assist someone to shape their skills, knowledge and competency base, the faster they will hit the ground running as they join the workforce. This is why we chose to partner with higher education institutions.

I am a believer that a good part of the Great Resignation was triggered by those people that realized they were going in the wrong direction in their careers. The pandemic gave everyone the opportunity to take a step back and rethink their personal life and career journey.

This is why “purpose” is key.

Think for example of someone that studies for 10 years to become a doctor. Then 10 years into their career, they realize that this path was not fulfilling their sense of purpose. What a tragedy this would be. This is why this partnership between industry and education matters. There is a lot of data available on both sides of the fence to better inform everyone to do better. Organizations must commit to seeing the person, that lifelong learner, in their student or employee. Because while we could be a student at one point in time, and an employee at another, we remain the same human that aspires to make the most of our time on earth.
