Second Quarter 2022 Consolidated Results

Revenue for the Successor three months ended June 30, 2022 grew 6.4% to $715 million, as compared to $672 million for the Predecessor prior year period.

Gross profit for the Successor three months ended June 30, 2022 increased 0.9% to $219 million or 30.6% of revenue, from $217 million, or 32.3% of revenue for the Predecessor prior year period. The improvement in gross profit was primarily driven by revenue growth, partially offset by higher costs associated with compensation expenses related to awards issued beginning in the second half of 2021, recent acquisitions in the fourth quarter of 2021 and higher costs related to growth in revenue, including investments in key resources.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the Successor three months ended June 30, 2022 were $157 million, compared to $105 million for the Predecessor prior year period. The increase was primarily due to compensation expenses related to non-cash equity awards issued beginning in the second half of 2021.

Interest expense for the Successor three months ended June 30, 2022 improved to $29 million as compared to $61 million for the Predecessor prior year period. The reduction was primarily due to the redemption of our Unsecured Senior Notes and the partial paydown of a Term Loan in conjunction with the Business Combination completed during the third quarter of 2021.

Income before income tax benefit for the Successor three months ended June 30, 2022 was $43 million compared to a loss before income tax benefit of ($6) million for the Predecessor prior year period.

Alight Solutions Launches Alight Digital Wallet to Provide More Flexible Pay Options for Workers
June 16 2022 - 07:30AM

New solutions allow employees to be paid when they want and provides easier access to pay

Alight Solutions (NYSE: ALIT), a leading cloud-based provider of integrated digital human capital and business solutions, today announced the launch of Alight Digital Wallet, powered by QRails. This app-based solution will enable organizations to help their people meet their unique financial needs and improve their financial wellbeing with an approach to pay that offers the flexibility workers need and want.

Alight Digital Wallet introduces two flexible payment options:

The pay card offers an alternative to a physical check or direct deposit into a bank account via a company-issued debit card.
Earned wage access allows employees instant access to a part of their earned wages or salary ahead of payday. Both options provide a seamless and flexible way for employees to access their salaries and manage short-term financial needs without having to wait until payday.

Both pay solutions include financial wellbeing content to ensure a better employee experience.

“For many employees, finances are the number-one source of stress, more so than work, health and even family,” explained Luca Saracino, executive vice president, payroll solutions at Alight. “When employers provide more robust support around day-to-day finances and total financial wellbeing, employees are able to better manage their financial stressors, which can positively impact all aspects of their wellbeing. Flexible pay options are a simple way employers can provide this much needed help to their workforce.”

Alight Digital Wallet solutions can be easily integrated into any payroll system. The offering is currently available in the United States and will be rolled out to additional markets across Europe, Latin America, and globally.

The Alight Worklife platform which enables our business process as a service (BPaaS) model is an enterprise-wide employee engagement platform that brings together content, AI and analytics to help keep employees financially secure and healthy," said Chief Executive Officer Stephan Scholl. "Our results demonstrate the traction we achieved in 2021. BPaaS revenue and bookings ended the year well ahead of original goals as we concurrently grew our Employer Solutions business and improved gross margins. This positive momentum allows us to raise our 2022 guidance from our initial estimates that we outlined when we went public."

Increased revenue 20.0% to $864 million and adjusted EBITDA 28.4% to $190 million Improved net (loss) income to $72 million from $(18) million in the prior year period Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) revenue grew 14.0% to $106 million, representing 12.3% of total revenue BPaaS bookings on a total contract value basis increased 131% to $143 million Ended 2021 with over 80% of projected 2022 revenue under contract ahead of historical levels of 75% New wins and expanded relationships with companies include Ingka Group, the largest IKEA retailer; Mercado Libre; Prym; CM.com; Kalera; and Walgreens Completed acquisitions of the Retiree Health Exchange business and ConsumerMedical Completed a largely cashless redemption of 60 million warrants for approximately 15.3 million shares of Class A common stock Subsequent to quarter-end, refinanced $2.5 billion in term loans reducing the Term SOFR borrowing margin by 25 basis points, achieved a maturity extension and effected a pricing benchmark conversion

Fourth Quarter Results

We prepared our discussion of the results of operations by comparing the results of the combined Successor six months ended December 31, 2021 and Predecessor six months ended June 30, 2021 to the Predecessor year ended December 31, 2020 to provide enhanced comparability to the reader about the current year's results. We believe this approach provides a more meaningful comparison for the reader.

Consolidated Results

For the fourth quarter, total revenue for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021, increased 20.0% to $864 million, as compared to $720 million for the Predecessor prior year period driven by 24.6% growth in Employer Solutions revenue due to acquisition and net commercial activity partially offset by a 3.1% decrease in Professional Services revenue and previously anticipated 21.4% decline in the legacy Hosted Business segment.

Gross profit for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021, increased 45.5% to $294 million or 34.0% of revenue, from $202 million, for the Predecessor prior year period, or 28.1% of revenue. The increase in gross profit was primarily driven by revenue growth as noted above, partially offset by increases in costs associated with the growth in current and future revenues.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 increased by $72 million to $169 million as compared to $97 million for the Predecessor prior year period. The increase was primarily due to a full quarter of non-cash share-based compensation from grants awarded at the end of September 2021 and higher expense associated with two completed acquisitions.

Interest expense for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 improved to $29 million as compared to $62 million for the Predecessor prior year period. The change was primarily a result of a total debt reduction of $1.2 billion in conjunction with the Business Combination (as defined below) completed during the third quarter of 2021.

Profit before income tax expense for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 was $97 million compared to a loss before income tax benefit of $21 million for the Predecessor prior year period.

Fourth Quarter 2021 Segment Results

Employer Solutions

Employer Solutions is driven by Alight's digital, software and AI-led capabilities and spans total employee wellbeing and engagement, including integrated benefits administration, healthcare navigation, financial health, employee wellness and payroll.

Employer Solutions total revenues for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 were $760 million, as compared to $610 million for the Predecessor prior year period, up 24.6% or $150 million primarily due to the acquisition of the retiree health exchange, which is predominately a fourth quarter business and positive net commercial activity. Recurring revenue increased 29.2% to $691 million, while project revenue declined 8.0% to $69 million driven by softer demand for one-time services.

Employer Solutions gross profit for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 was $274 million, as compared to $175 million for the Predecessor prior year period, up 56.6% driven by the revenue growth as discussed above and lower expenses related to productivity initiatives, including the impact of lower restructuring and integration related costs partially offset by increases in costs associated with growth of current and future revenues.

Employer Solutions Adjusted EBITDA for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 was $193 million, as compared to $144 million for the Predecessor prior year period, up 34.0% or $49 million primarily due to revenue growth as discussed above.

Professional Services

Professional Services total revenues for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 were $93 million, as compared to $96 million for the Predecessor prior year period, down 3.1% or $3 million due to a decrease in project revenue of $6 million partially offset by an increase in recurring revenue of $3 million. Project revenue has been impacted by weaker client demand for one-time implementation work due to COVID-19 related cost-cutting, while recurring revenue has benefited from ongoing client demand to optimize existing systems.

Professional Services gross profit for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 was $20 million as compared to $29 million for the Predecessor prior year period. The decrease of $9 million, or 31.0%, was primarily due to lower revenue and the Company's continued investment in retaining a specialized workforce.

Professional Services Adjusted EBITDA for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 was a loss of ($3) million as compared to $8 million for the Predecessor prior year period. The decrease of $11 million was primarily due to lower revenue and investments in key resources and workforce.

Hosted Business

Hosted Business revenues for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 were $11 million as compared to $14 million for the Predecessor prior year period. The decrease of $3 million was due to expected transitions from our Hosted Business to cloud-based services.

Hosted Business Gross Profit (Loss) for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 was an immaterial amount as compared to a loss of ($2) million for the Predecessor prior year period.

Hosted Business Adjusted EBITDA for the Successor three months ended December 31, 2021 was an immaterial amount compared to a loss of ($4) million for the Predecessor prior year period. The increase of $4 million was driven by a decrease in costs in the period which outpaced a decrease in revenue during the period.

Full Year 2021 Results

Consolidated Results

Revenues were $1,554 million for the Successor six months ended December 31, 2021, $1,361 million for the Predecessor six months ended June 30, 2021 and $2,728 million for the Predecessor year ended December 31, 2020. Revenues, for the combined year ended December 31, 2021, increased 6.9% to $2,915 million underpinned by 9.4% growth in Employer Solutions revenue due to the two completed acquisitions and net commercial activity partially offset by flat Professional services revenue and a previously anticipated reduction in the legacy Hosted Business segment.

Gross profit grew 15.9% to $967 million or 33.2% of revenue for the Successor six months ended December 31, 2021, from $834 million, or 30.6% of revenue for the Predecessor prior year period. The increase was primarily driven by revenue growth, partially offset by higher costs associated with the growth in current and future revenues including investments in key resources and recent acquisitions. This was partially offset by lower expenses related to productivity initiatives, including lower restructuring related costs and $21 million of lower costs in the Hosted Business as clients transition to cloud-based services.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $304 million for the Successor six months ended December 31, 2021, $222 million for the Predecessor six months ended June 30, 2021 and $461 million for the Predecessor year ended December 31, 2020. Selling, general and administrative expenses, for the combined year ended December 31, 2021, increased by $65 million, or 14.1%, to $526 million primarily due to a rise in compensation expenses related to non-cash stock awards issued in the third quarter of 2021 and non-recurring professional expenses related to costs incurred in relation to the Business Combination completed in the third quarter of 2021, partially offset by lower restructuring expenses related to productivity initiatives.

Interest expenses were $57 million for the Successor six months ended December 31, 2021, $123 million for the Predecessor six months ended June 30, 2021 and $234 million for the Predecessor year ended December 31, 2020. Interest expenses, for the combined year ended December 31, 2021, improved to $180 million as compared to $234 million for the Predecessor prior year period. The $54 million, or 23.0%, reduction was primarily due to the redemption of Unsecured Senior Notes and partial paydown of the Term Loan in conjunction with the Business Combination completed during the third quarter of 2021, partially offset by incremental interest associated with the term loan issued in the third quarter of 2021.

Loss before income tax expense (benefit) was $23 million for the Successor six months ended December 31, 2021, $30 million for the Predecessor six months ended June 30, 2021 and $94 million for the Predecessor year ended December 31, 2020. Loss before income tax expense (benefit) was $53 million for the combined year ended December 31, 2021, a decrease of $41 million compared to $94 million for the Predecessor year ended December 31, 2020, due to the drivers identified above and the fair value remeasurement associated with certain liabilities.

Balance Sheet Highlights and Subsequent Events

As of December 31, 2021, the Company's cash and cash equivalents balance was $372 million, total debt was $2,868 million and total debt net of cash and cash equivalents was $2,496 million. During the quarter, the Company announced the redemption of all of the Company's 45 million public warrants and 15 million Class C units. In connection with the redemption, the vast majority of holders elected to exercise on a cashless basis. This resulted in the issuance of approximately 15.3 million shares of the Company's Class A common stock. This transaction further simplified the Company's capital structure and reduced potential future dilution.

In January 2022, the Company updated the Benchmark reference rate on $2.5 billion of term loans to Term SOFR from LIBOR. It also extended the maturity date and reduced the Term SOFR borrowing margin by 25 basis points on $2.0 billion of those term loans.

Business Outlook

Given the strong results in 2021 and recent momentum, the Company is introducing its full-year 2022 outlook:

Revenue of $3.09 to $3.12 billion (growth of 6% to 7%) on a higher 2021 revenue base than the Company's original guidance. Current full year 2022 outlook exceeds original outlook of $2.95 billion. Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $650 million to $662 million. This compares to the Company's original guidance of $640 million for 2022. Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.54 to $0.60, a new metric. BPaaS total contract value bookings of $680 to $700 million driven by strong client reception

Alight: Quality Growth Stock Under The Radar
Dec. 06, 2021 6:07 AM ETAlight, Inc. (ALIT)
Summary

Alight is one of the largest providers of outsourced human capital management solutions.
The product of a SPAC that began trading in July. Negative sentiment among SPACs (current and former) and the complete meltdown of Paysafe has weighed on the stock.
Durable business model, high level of recurring revenue, and trades at a reasonable valuation.
Consistent results, increased visibility as a public company, new research coverage and inclusion in the broad indices should be positive catalysts.

Alight Announces Redemption of All Outstanding Class C Units
December 02 2021 - 06:00AM


Alight (NYSE: ALIT) (“Alight” or the “Managing Member”), a leading cloud-based provider of integrated digital human capital and business solutions, today announced that Alight Holding Company, LLC (the “Company”) will redeem all of its 15,133,333 outstanding Class C Units (the “Units”) to purchase shares of the Managing Member’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), for a redemption price of $0.10 per Unit (the “Redemption Price”), that remain outstanding at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on December 27, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”). This redemption follows the redemption of the 44,499,941 outstanding Public Warrants (which include the Forward Purchase Warrants) which were called for redemption on November 26, 2021 pursuant to a notice of redemption delivered on the same date.

These Units were issued under the Second Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement of the Company, dated as of July 2, 2021, by and between the Managing Member, Bilcar FT, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“Bilcar”), Trasimene Capital FT, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“Trasimene”), the Company and the other parties from time to time party thereto, as amended by the First Amendment to Second Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement of the Company, dated as of December 1, 2021 (together, the “LLC Agreement”), by and between the Managing Member, Bilcar, Trasimene and the Company and are subject to the Warrant Agreement, dated as of May 29, 2020, by and between Foley Trasimene Acquisition Corp. (n/k/a Alight Group, Inc.) (“FTAC”) and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (the “Warrant Agent”), as amended by the Warrant Assumption Agreement, dated as of July 2, 2021 (together, the “Warrant Agreement”), by and between the Managing Member, FTAC and the Warrant Agent.

Redemption Details

Under the terms of the LLC Agreement, the Company is entitled to redeem all of the outstanding Units if the Reference Value (as defined below) equals or exceeds $10.00 per share. “Reference Value” means the last reported sales price of the shares of the Class A Common Stock for any twenty (20) trading days within the thirty (30) trading-day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which notice of the redemption is given. This share price performance target has been met.

In accordance with the Warrant Agreement, upon delivery of the notice of redemption, the Units may be exchanged either for cash or on a “cashless basis.” Accordingly, holders may continue to exchange Units and receive Class A Common Stock in exchange for payment in cash of the $11.50 per Unit exchange price. Alternatively, a holder may surrender Units for a certain number of shares of Class A Common Stock (such fraction determined by reference to the Warrant Agreement and described in the notice of redemption) that such holder would have been entitled to receive upon a cash exchange of Units. Holders of Units that elect a “make-whole” cashless exchange of the Units will receive a number of shares of Class A Common Stock for each Unit surrendered for exchange to be provided to the holders of Units no later than December 13, 2021. The exchange procedures are described in the notice of redemption and the election to purchase included therein. Any Units that remain unexchanged at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date will be void and no longer exercisable, and the holders will have no rights with respect to those Units, except to receive the $0.10 per Unit.

The number of shares of Class A Common Stock that each exercising Unit holder will receive by virtue of the make-whole cashless exchange (instead of paying the $11.50 per Unit cash exchange price) will be calculated in accordance with the terms of the Warrant Agreement with reference to the table set forth in Section 6.2 of the Warrant Agreement based on the fair market value of the shares of Class A Common Stock and length of time to the applicable expiration of the Units. If any holder of Units would, after taking into account all of such holder’s Units exchanged at one time, be entitled to receive a fractional interest in a share of Class A Common Stock, the number of shares the holder will be entitled to receive will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of shares.

None of Alight, its board of directors or employees has made or is making any representation or recommendation to any holder of the Units as to whether to exchange, whether on a cash or cashless basis, or refrain from exchanging any Units.

Issuance of the shares of Class A Common Stock underlying the Units has been registered by Alight under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and is covered by a registration statement filed on Form S-1 with, and declared effective by, the Securities and Exchange Commission (Registration No. 333-258350). In addition to the broker of any Unit holder, questions may also be directed to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, 1 State Street, 30th Floor, New York, New York 10004, Attention: Compliance Department, Telephone Number (212) 509-4000.

Alight Announces Redemption of All Outstanding Warrants
November 29 2021 - 06:00AM


Alight (NYSE: ALIT) (“Alight or the “Company”), a leading cloud-based provider of integrated digital human capital and business solutions, today announced that the Company will redeem all of its outstanding warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), that were issued under the Warrant Agreement, dated as of May 29, 2020, by and between Foley Trasimene Acquisition Corp. (n/k/a Alight Group, Inc.) (“FTAC”) and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (the “Warrant Agent”), as amended by the Warrant Assumption Agreement, dated as of July 2, 2021 (together, the “Warrant Agreement”), by and between the Company, FTAC and the Warrant Agent, for a redemption price of $0.10 per Warrant (the “Redemption Price”), that remain outstanding at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on December 27, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”).

Redemption Details

Under the terms of the Warrant Agreement, the Company is entitled to redeem all of the outstanding Warrants if the Reference Value (as defined below) equals or exceeds $10.00 per share and, if the Reference Value is less than $18.00 per share, any Private Placement Warrants and Forward Purchase Warrants are also concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants (each as defined in the Warrant Agreement). “Reference Value” means the last reported sales price of the shares of Class A Common Stock for any twenty (20) trading days within the thirty (30) trading-day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which notice of the redemption is given. This share price performance target has been met. No Private Placement Warrants are outstanding, and the Forward Purchase Warrants are being concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants. At the direction of the Company, the Warrant Agent delivered a notice of redemption to each of the registered holders of the outstanding Warrants on November 26, 2021.

In accordance with the Warrant Agreement, upon delivery of the notice of redemption, the Warrants may be exercised either for cash or on a “cashless basis.” Accordingly, holders may continue to exercise Warrants and receive Class A Common Stock in exchange for payment in cash of the $11.50 per warrant exercise price. Alternatively, a holder may surrender Warrants for a certain number of shares of Class A Common Stock (such fraction determined by reference to the Warrant Agreement and described in the notice of redemption) that such holder would have been entitled to receive upon a cash exercise of a Warrant. Holders of Warrants that elect a “make-whole” cashless exercise of the Warrants will receive a number of shares of Class A Common Stock for each Warrant surrendered for exercise to be provided to the holders of Warrants no later than December 13, 2021. The exercise procedures are described in the notice of redemption and the election to purchase included therein. Any Warrants that remain unexercised at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date will be delisted, void and no longer exercisable, and the holders will have no rights with respect to those Warrants, except to receive the $0.10 per Warrant.

The number of shares of Class A Common Stock that each exercising Warrant holder will receive by virtue of the make-whole cashless exercise (instead of paying the $11.50 per Warrant cash exercise price) will be calculated in accordance with the terms of the Warrant Agreements with reference to the table set forth in Section 6.2 of the Warrant Agreements based on the fair market value of the shares of Class A Common Stock and length of time to the applicable expiration of the Warrants. If any holder of Warrants would, after taking into account all of such holder’s Warrants exercised at one time, be entitled to receive a fractional interest in a share of Class A Common Stock, the number of shares the holder will be entitled to receive will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of shares.

Alight understands from the New York Stock Exchange that December 23, 2021, the trading day prior to the Redemption Date, will be the last day on which the Warrants will be traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

None of Alight, its board of directors or employees has made or is making any representation or recommendation to any holder of the Warrants as to whether to exercise, whether on a cash or cashless basis, or refrain from exercising any Warrants.

Issuance of the shares of Class A Common Stock underlying the Warrants has been registered by Alight under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and is covered by a registration statement filed on Form S-1 with, and declared effective by, the Securities and Exchange Commission (Registration No. 333-258350). Exercise of Warrants held in “street name” should be directed through the broker of the Warrant holder. In addition to the broker, questions may also be directed to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, 1 State Street, 30th Floor, New York, New York 10004, Attention: Compliance Department, Telephone Number (212) 509-4000.

From Foley's company CNNE earnings report. A major holder of $ALIT

https://seekingalpha.com/article/4467699-cannae-holdings-inc-cnne-ceo-rick-massey-on-q3-2021-earnings-call-transcript

"...It's been sort of some dark days here lately, but they're coming out, we believe, they're coming out of the ditch. And it's going to be a great stock to own. We're also pleased with Alight and Ceridian. They posted great results this quarter.

Alight reported earlier today 20% revenue growth in their BPaaS revenue, which is their enterprise software platform. They had a 42% increase in BPaaS bookings in the third quarter, so incredible growth in the growth engine of Alight.

They actually reported that, at the end of the third quarter they had achieved already 99% of the revenue that they had originally projected to achieve for the full year. So we obviously -- we're really happy with this company.

They've done a few deals to expand their product offerings. Those are listed in the quarterly report and in their own press release, but that was Venafi, ConsumerMedical and the Aon Retiree Health Exchange.

We think Stephan and his team Katie, Cathinka are best-in-class. And we share his vision Stephan's vision with unlocking the power of Alight's, BPaaS platform. And it's funny, because we were just talking Alight started this year or started out as a public company they talked about organic revenue growth of 1%, for 2021.

Then, sometime in the second quarter they said, "Well, we're going to get maybe 3% revenue growth 3%, 4%, maybe up to 5%. Then today they guided to 5% to 6% in 2021 and that obviously bodes very well.

I don't think they guided for 2022, but you can expect our revenue to continue to accelerate this company. And my own personal opinion is going to be a high single-digit grower in the very near future.

That's going to get you a re-rate, much higher multiple of EBITDA. And we think you're going to be a very happy owner there. ...."



In the Q&A section
"But I still love Alight you can see the results you go look at what they reported this morning. They are just knocking the thing out of the park. We love the management team. It's a big idea. I do think they're going to get a re-rate. I do think they're going to hit high single-digit revenue growth eventually. And I think eventually some big company is going to come buy them. So, hopefully we'll get a double or a triple and then if that happens."

Granada Spain

The main private employer in the province is looking for 250 technology workers in Granada

The multinational Alight Solutions already has 1,500 employees in the technology sector in its Granada center, on the rise in this land

The multinational Alight Solutions is looking for 250 workers specialized in technology for its center in Granada. The old Arinso has become today, with almost 1,500 employees in the city, the main private contractor in the province. Only the University of Granada beats him from the public.

Alight Solutions seeks to expand its Granada workforce with 250 new employees to be immediately incorporated to meet the great demand for IT solutions services for large companies and, from now on, to generate its own software. The expansion is continuous, as explained on Radio Granada by the world vice president of the company and head of the Granada center Javier Toni, for its two lines of work:

Of the 15,000 workers that the North American multinational has in the world, 1,500 are in Granada, in a center that has evolved in recent months.

In line with the consolidation of this province as a national technological focus, Alight Solutions has gone from being a computer management and support services company to also generating its own applications for third parties. It is an important leap in quality, endorsed a few days ago by the top international leader.

The company was established in Granada in 2007 as Northgate Arinso. The Granada center was recently acquired by the multinational Alight Solutions, not by chance. Now it is strengthening ties with the University of Granada, whose School of Informatics and Telecommunications is considered one of the best in the world.

Alight helps employers manage vaccine requirements with secure digital solution
August 25 2021 - 09:00AM

Alight Verify provides easy way for employers to track the vaccination status of their workforce

In the face of emerging COVID-19 variants and ever-changing government regulations and guidance, U.S. employers continue to grapple with how to safely bring people back to the workplace. Alight Solutions, a leading cloud-based provider of integrated digital human capital and business solutions, has launched Alight Verify to help employers manage vaccine requirements and leverage data in driving business continuity decisions.

With Alight Verify, employees enter their vaccination data and upload their vaccination cards, which are securely stored within the Alight platform where employees regularly access and engage with their HR and benefits applications. Provided with real-time analytics, employers have better visibility into vaccination trends and can delineate between high-risk areas where COVID-19 cases are mounting and other areas where vaccinations, masking and other factors are holding case numbers down.

“The resurgence of COVID-19 cases is casting uncertainty on future plans and employers are facing sensitive but critically important return to workplace issues,” said Colin Brennan, chief product strategy & services officer at Alight. “Whether a company requires vaccination, provides incentives or has different policies based on vaccination status, Alight Verify will help them protect the health and safety of their workforce and future-proof their operations.”

Alight Verify helps employers manage the impact of the pandemic on their workforce in three ways:

Vaccine documentation: Employees enter their vaccination information into a secure system in a way that’s efficient and mindful of their privacy. Exceptions for medical or religious reasons are also recorded.

Multichannel communications: Employees receive personalized messages on their preferred channel or device, including vaccine education and reminders about vaccine boosters and testing programs.

Data-driven insights: Employers track vaccination statuses across geographies and medical plans, which can reveal workforce trends and risk factors that help drive decisions around in-person staffing and mask requirements.

Alight Verify also allows employers to apply credits and surcharges, depending on employees’ vaccination statuses, during annual enrollment and off-cycle campaigns.
