How To Present Data To Management – Lessons for HR

Presenting data is harder than it looks. Bar charts may not cut it. But, maybe in HR we have an advantage because our data is about people. We can tell stories! We can humanize the data!

For example, change ‘20% of employees are planning on leaving within 6 months’ to ‘1 out of 5 employees want to leave by Easter’. It’s even better if, after that, you draw the line between the fact and the business impacts.
