Human Resources

Human Resources departments are tasked with managing a company’s largest expense and biggest asset – its employees. HR teams must ensure that their company is staffed with just the right number of people, with the right skills, in the right places so it can achieve its business objectives. However, today’s employment climate is highly dynamic – as of 2014, the median number of years a US worker had been with their employer was just 4.6 years.

Executive Dossier

The Challenge

Employee information is often spread across multiple systems for human capital management, applicant tracking, and more, making it difficult for HR executives to monitor the status of their HR operations and detect alarming trends.

The Solution

MicroStrategy solutions give HR leaders a comprehensive view of their organization by blending data from core HR systems, talent management systems, performance, payroll, and more. By presenting essential KPIs as intuitive visualizations, MicroStrategy helps keep managers current on HR functions, from recruiting, to attrition, benefits administration, and payroll. Companies can use these insights to help maximize the potential of their workforce and increase efficiency. The image to the right shows an application that provides an at-a-glance summary of the core aspects related to headcount, including headcount trends, hiring rates, departure rates, and attrition rates at the departmental level.

Workforce Planning

The Challenge

In today’s dynamic and fast-paced employment climate, HR professionals need detailed workforce insights so they can ensure that their company is staffed with just the right number of people, with the right skills, in the right job roles.

The Solution

With MicroStrategy solutions, HR teams can closely monitor employee headcount and individual skillsets to help ensure that key positions are filled with qualified people. MicroStrategy predictive analytics help businesses account for employee attrition, budget changes, employee satisfaction, and more, allowing them to more accurately forecast recruiting needs and make organizational adjustments. For example, the application shown captures the supporting detail behind the headcount forecasts and budgets for business units within a company. By visually highlighting variances between the two, HR leaders can easily identify business units that have positions to fill or those that are potentially over-staffed.

Recruiting Automation

The Challenge

It took a record average of 29.3 working days to fill open positions in the US during April 2016. To accelerate hiring cycles, recruiters need mobile tools to help them eliminate delays and work more efficiently.

The Solution

MicroStrategy Mobile solutions can complement existing applicant tracking systems or operate independently. These talent acquisition apps allow decision makers to manage their hiring processes wherever they are, so they can conduct interviews, gather feedback on candidates, select hires, and finalize offers—all without being tied to a desk. By reducing process inefficiencies, these apps provide recruiters with an edge in securing the highest quality talent for their companies. This example shows an interactive rating screen for recruiters to complete post-interview. Using embedded transactional features, recruiters can immediately submit feedback on candidates to back-end tracking systems, reducing time-to-hire. Calendars and other essential resources help keep recruiters organized and efficient, even when they’re offline. *Source: DHI Hiring Indicators - June 2016 Report

Recruiting Analysis

The Challenge

Recruiting is a non-stop process, and HR departments must continually evaluate the effectiveness of their campaigns and techniques to ensure that key positions are filled quickly, with the best available talent.

The Solution

MicroStrategy Analytics solutions blend data from 3rd-party applicant tracking systems, internal HR systems, and other corporate systems to give HR departments a comprehensive view of their recruiting program. HR leaders can quickly assess the efficiency of recruitment efforts by viewing KPIs for vacant positions, including time-to-fill, time-to-hire, and interviews-per-hire. Additionally, managers can obtain demographic information on new hires to gain insight into the experience, make-up, and general quality of their growing workforce. The application shown provides detailed insight into the current states of hiring and attrition by displaying essential KPIs with colored threshold indicators. Managers can also visualize hiring trends and total employee headcount, as well as evaluate the effectiveness of various recruitment sources.

Attrition Analysis

The Challenge

Recruiting, onboarding, and training new salaried employees is expensive. Organizations need specialized tools to help them retain these individuals once hired.

The Solution

Using MicroStrategy Analytics, HR leaders can easily identify employees with multiple risk factors for turnover, drill down to understand the conditions creating the risk, and take appropriate actions to resolve the situation and help ensure that top talent is retained. In the example shown, risk factors such as comp ratios, performance reviews, tenure, and survey responses are aggregated to calculate a Total Risk Value for every employee. In this case, employees with three or more risk factors are visually highlighted for further scrutiny. Atrisk employees can take many forms, such as a high performer who is under-compensated or has expressed interest in another role.

Performance Management

The Challenge

According to a recent survey, 71% of millennials who expect to leave their employer in the next two years are unhappy with the development of their leadership skills.* To retain top performers, HR organizations must ensure that their performance review processes yield actionable results.

The Solution

MicroStrategy solutions help companies identify top performers, assess their skillsets, and shape their career paths with better goal setting, training and development, and merit-based pay increases. With these insights, managers can keep employees motivated while also expanding their skills, so they are prepared to occupy more senior roles in the future. The report shown above clearly identifies employees who attained the highest performance ratings within a group or across the company. Managers can easily drill deeper into data for specific employees to see the details behind their performance ratings. In addition, this screen provides a rolled-up summary of potential organizational actions - such as promotion, retention, or transfer - for various classes of employees.

Training and Education

The Challenge

Companies make tremendous investments to recruit, onboard, and retain employees. To maximize the return on those investments, HR organizations must ensure that employees receive the training necessary to advance their careers and to continue adding value to the bottom line.

The Solution

Using MicroStrategy Mobile solutions, HR organizations can help ensure that employees are equipped with the information they need to be successful in their role. Employees can access presentations, videos, competitive information, and complete course certifications — all from their mobile devices. By investing in training, organizations can reap the benefits of higher employee satisfaction, lower turnover costs, and a better-run business. The example shows the training screen of a pharmaceutical sales app that gives users instant access to information about company products, industry trends and regulations, and competitive offerings. This app delivers a wide range of multi-media content to employees, including presentations, videos, product info, and industry research. Additionally, the content is continually updated and even available offline, so employees can always engage with the latest educational resources.

Manager Portal

The Challenge

Organizational structures constantly change, and managers often get assigned new resources without much insight into their history. Employee information about past performance reviews, salary and bonus history, promotion history, and areas of expertise is typically spread across multiple systems and unavailable to managers when it’s needed.

The Solution

This application enables managers to easily access and manage employee information such as contact details, job skills, benefits, payroll, and performance data. In addition, managers can quickly review and approve expenses, time-off requests, equipment orders, purchase orders, and maintenance requests. As a result, managers can be more productive, corporate processes can move more quickly, and employees can benefit from better, more consistent career development.

Employee Self-service

The Challenge

Today’s employees are used to living with the convenience of mobile apps and expect to interact with employers and corporate systems the same way.

The Solution

With MicroStrategy solutions, HR organizations can help keep employees engaged, productive, and more satisfied by deploying self-service applications that condense multiple systems into a single place. These applications let employees create and modify their personal profiles, monitor their individual benefits and payroll information, and contact specific departments if they have questions. This solution helps increase HR and payrollrelated transparency and can lead to better overall communication between employees and the departments designed to support them, facilitating a more integrated, knowledgeable, and engaged organization.

Digital ID Badge

The Challenge

Traditional physical access credentials like plastic ID badges, passwords, and hardware tokens are cumbersome to manage, and — because they are easily lost or stolen — are prone to security breaches.

The Solution

Usher enables enterprises to boost their security posture by controlling employee access to disparate facilities and offices via centrally-managed digital identity badges. Usher badges provide a range of highly configurable, multi-factor authentication features that include support for push notifications, biometrics, one-time passcodes, face-to-face validation, as well as time- and geo-fencing. Employees can easily clock in or out using their digital badge, and can also open doors and other entryways via Bluetooth proximity, or by tapping a digital key on their smartphone. Usher can also complement existing employee self-service mobile apps by adding a layer of authentication to help secure interactions with corporate systems.

Time and Attendance Tracking

The Challenge

According to a global study, the median loss from a single case of occupational fraud is $150,000*. HR organizations need to automate time and attendance tracking to avoid costly (accidental or intentional) errors in time-logging.

The Solution

With Usher, organizations can replace timesheets and antiquated systems by allowing employees to automatically check in and out of their shifts simply by using their smartphone. With both Bluetooth proximity features and geo-fencing or time-fencing capabilities, employees can enjoy a more convenient experience, while Usher’s multi-factor authentication features help ensure secure user validation. This solution pinpoints and timestamps when employees enter or leave any enterprise facility, regardless of geography. Using real-time maps of enterprise office activity, managers can help ensure that employees are where they should be, so they can direct operations accordingly.
