What is HR data visualization?

HR data visualization is essentially the process of transforming raw data into meaningful visual stories presented in the form of insightful graphs, charts and dashboards. Because of the way our brain processes information, presenting data in a visual way helps us discover patterns and trends, making data visualization a much more effective way of conveying a story than overloading stakeholders with raw data.

In order for HR to really become data-driven, information needs to be presented intuitively and accompanied by a clear story so that it becomes easy to use in the decision-making process. This means that in addition to a certain level of data literacy, you also need to understand how people process visual information, and how to explore data to uncover its story. Knowledge of various types of charts and graphs, and the pitfalls associated with them, is an essential part of creating effective and compelling visualizations of HR data.
