Texas Rangers Director, Amateur Scouting Operations, Adam Lewkowicz added: “SurePeople allows our talent acquisition team to leverage advanced analytics so we can better understand how prospective talent will impact team chemistry and performance. Utilizing Prism’s insights in our scouting process has improved our decision making.” To date, more than 600 prospective Rangers recruits have taken Prism.
