Research shows that a diverse workforce is the most productive. A new startup is tapping into some tech so organizations can know just how diverse their employees are.

D.C.-based Lineup Management Services created a B2B platform that’s designed to help organizations build better, more diverse teams. The software startup recently launched its flagship product called lineup, a tool for organizations who work in the assessment industry to use when making sure they have a diverse workforce, a press release states.

“The performance of a team depends greatly on the diversity of its talent,Guillermo Ortiz de Zarate, president of Lineup Management Services said in a statement. “Teams that have a mix of people with varying backgrounds, experience and training think differently. Participants are happier and more engaged, which leads to more discussion, possibility, innovation and, ultimately, better outcomes. It’s with this knowledge we developed lineup. We wanted to make it easier for organizations to capture this data, filter on specific traits and build the best work teams possible.”

The company introduced the product at the Association of Test Producers’ (ATP) annual conference in Orlando earlier this month. Lineup has a dashboard with multiple functions for users to create and distribute evaluations, track responses, organize and update data, filter data using customized tags and more. Users can continuously track data to identify trends and make workforce improvements.

“Lineup is a great tool for any organization that regularly forms cross-functional teams and/or manages a robust dataset of traits and characteristics for its team members,” Zarate said in the press release. “It is particularly applicable for associations and test publishers. Not only does it save them time by automating a traditionally cumbersome, manual process, but it also harnesses valuable data they can use to make informed improvements that will increase engagement, enhance productivity and optimize performance.”

Lineup Management Services launched in 2017 and its lineup product was designed by IT professionals who work for the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB). Lineup started as an internal project for NCARB to get more insight into the skills and demographics of its volunteers. The company was born out of NCARB and since the council created the product, it has taken a cultural shift to develop tech solutions as an external business.
