 Current HR data visualisation challenges

Data quality and integrity:HR data is often fragmented and spread out across different HRIS, payroll systems and spreadsheets.This disorganised data makes it difficult to get a clear view of employee metrics, complicating workforce management.

Ineffective budget planning and resource allocations:The budget planning process is critical to get right. What is needed is both a top-down view of headcount, costs and budgets as well as a bottom-up plan that needs to address the business priorities. This can be a significant administrative headache if handled through ad hoc channels such as email, spreadsheets etc.

Diversity and inclusion in the workforce: Building a balanced and inclusive workforce is challenging. HR teams need to address bias in hiring and create a culture that values diversity and ensure fair opportunities for everyone.

Visualisation examples that are proven to enable HR teams

Data cleansing report

It highlights missing fields and errors with the help of visualisation rules, enabling managers to correct bad data easily. You can easily identify all long term vacancies to ensure that you only have current positions in your payroll system.

Budget management report 
This report allows companies to organise their key metrics based on org units (departments, cost centres, business units, etc.) and span of control. The visualisation rules highlight departments who are over or under budget, as well as employees that have a compa-ratio under 95% of the set benchmark. This chart can also show acting employees and vacant positions that exist now and in the future.
