Data-driven HR: Control your assets and manage staffing trends

Always have the right people with the right skills at the right time and cost

The Challenge

Until you capture a consolidated view of your organization's employee data, you can never know for sure what's going in your workforce. How's morale?
Supporting Content
Which areas have the highest staff turnover? How are productivity levels? All of these questions are crucial to an HR department, but without being able to see the big picture they can be hard to answer.

Disparate data leads to uncertainty: Understanding staffing trends, absences and managing attendance is difficult when this information is held in different places. You'll either waste time manually pulling the information together from different reports or worse, you could make a wrong decision based on confusing or incomplete data.

Looking ahead is impossible without good data: Being able to see what's coming around the next corner can be incredibly valuable in business, but unless your data is in order it's hard to discover trends that can lead you to good decisions about future resource levels. To be one step ahead and ready for whatever the market throws at you, you need to have access to good and up-to-date data in a format where you can understand what's going on and spot the trends.

Keeping your data safe is crucial: HR data is often extremely sensitive and confidential, so it is important that it's only ever viewed by authorised managers. This requires robust data access and content control - two things not to be compromised on.

The Solution

To ensure you have the right people with the right skills at the right time and cost, you need a tool that can help you extract maximum value from your HR data. DecisionPoint can help you get all your HR data together and give you a complete overview, so you achieve the right staffing levels whilst balancing cost and customer service.
Identify Patterns
Identify patterns in hiring, firing and promotions across your company:

With DecisionPoint, you can present your HR data in an intuitive and information app. You can drill down through business units, into departments, teams and individuals, you can filter by employee type, location, paygrade etc. and you can view information about absences, training courses provided and appraisals etc.

Control Content
Keeping confidential data confidential:

DecisionPoint provides control over both content security, to control who sees which app, and data security, to restrict the information people can see within an app. For example, this will allow you to restrict access to an appraisal dashboard to line managers, who will each only be able to see details of their direct reports.

Avoid Risk
