Workforce Visualization through Automated Organizational Charting
Visualizing the Workforce
As a Human Resources manager of large company, you undoubtedly create countless organizational charts to communicate the workforce structure and manage it effectively. This manual organizational charting effort tends to be time consuming, prone to errors and typically results in charts that are out-of-date before they’re even completed. Additionally, these charts provide no real business value because they lack metrics and meaningful data. Part of the problem is that the information is hidden in multiple data sources.
When you don’t track workforce data effectively, you run the risk of:
- Violating government and industry regulations
- Wasting time calculating metrics associated with individual contributor headcount
- Failing to align corporate initiatives with structure of your business
Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily access all the data stored in your separate HR data silos, regardless of the source? Then, you could use the data to drive business decisions. With a deeper visibility into the workforce, HR professionals, executives and managers like you get a more cohesive view of the business. A secure, automated, web-based system that provides access to a visual view of the workforce structure (but restricting access to sensitive data such as performance and salary information) enables you to get the critical details your company needs to succeed in today’s dynamic, global marketplace.
Driving Business Decisions
With instant access to an accurate view of your organization available on the web, your company intranet or even your smart phone, you can generate the reports you need to manage more efficiently. Using headcount reports that include contact information, education level and current performance, you can quickly assess performance gaps and plan for learning and development initiatives that have real business impact.
Successful managers use ad hoc reports to determine if positions have been filled and take action if openings remain. This type of agility makes your company more competitive and responsive to industry trends. Charts exported in multiple styles makes reporting relationships clear, showing the depth and breadth of your staff. With careful analysis, you can identify managers with too many direct reports and make adjustments to ensure your strategies for talent management and succession planning reflect a sustainable business strategy. Using organizational charting to transform the data buried deep in your HR databases gives you the flexibility to build the optimal organizational structure for your company.
