HR Analytics Dashboard


An HR Analytics using Power BI will give a dynamic overview of the most important HR metrics in a single platform.

In our dashboard, you will see the below mention information
  • Organization Structure
  • Revenue per employee – Companies need to know if they are overstaffed/understaffed and this metric can determine if more is being spent on salaries than there is revenue coming in.
  • Headcount: Track the size of your company or department
  • Gender Ratio: Common distinction often used for diversity purposes
  • Age: Age is becoming increasingly important in today’s aging workforce. Age is often a key focus point for organizations that want to innovate and reorganize.
  • Education level: Educational level should only be included when available and when relevant for the overarching goals of the organization. Otherwise, it runs the risk of being a ‘vanity metric’ in the HR report.
  • Function type: A metric like function type or function clusters might help to distinguish different groups within the company. An example could be top management, middle management, production personnel, and support staff.
  • Cost per Hire: Measure how much it costs for a single hire
  • Turnover Rate: Analyze the effectiveness of your employee retention efforts
  • New hires: This metric represents the number and/or percentage of new employees who joined the organization within the last year.
  • Absence: This metric represents the percentage of time that employees were absent in the previous period on average. Another representation of this number is the total days of absence per employee.
  • Absence rate –  How frequently are employees calling out for the day/week/month? And, is there a pattern in certain departments or absences by the time of year.
  • Length of service –  This can be an indicator of happiness at work and employee satisfaction. The more employees a company can retain, and the longer they can retain them, the better.
  • Training cost: Training cost represents the total amount that a company spends on training new hires and the existing workforce.
  • Recruitment cost: The total cost of recruitment efforts, often includes the costs of external agencies, advertisement and, sometimes, lost productivity. Entire books have been written on how to calculate this number. Read for more information here.
  • Applications Received per Vacancy: Track the popularity of your job vacancy postings
