“By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes. A sort of information map. And when you’re lost in information, an information map is kind of useful.” – David McCandless
The primary goal of a dashboard is to enable data visualization for decision making. Dashboards display the most important information needed to achieve one or more objectives that fit entirely on a single computer screen, so it can be monitored at a glance.
Dashboards consolidate and arrange numbers and metrics on a single screen. A well-designed dashboard is a remarkable information management tool.
Data dashboards: Collections of tables, charts, maps, and summary statistics that are updated as new data become available.
Dashboards can be;
• Static for a one-time view, or
• Dynamic & interactive showing data changes
• Should present timely summary data or metrics/KPIs (useful to the user/decision-maker)
• Should inform rather than overwhelm
• Should call attention to unusual metrics/KPIs that require attention or are of interest
Uses of dashboards
• To help management monitor specific aspects of the company’s performance related to their decision-making responsibilities
• For corporate-level managers, daily data dashboards might summarize sales by region, current inventory levels, and other company-wide metrics
• Front-line managers may view dashboards that contain metrics related to staffing levels, local inventory levels, and short-term sales forecasts
An HR Dashboard is a data visualization/visual display of important HR metrics, stats & insights on a single screen. The primary purpose of an HR Dashboard is for decision making by management teams of organizations.
Employers should ascertain what works well for their organizations and what measurements they feel are critical to be displayed on the HR Dashboard.

▪ Workforce Demographics like Gender, Age etc
