Why sift through reams of personnel and performance data when you can monitor your Key Performance Indicators on a simple dashboard? Uncomplicate voluminous, time-consuming and repetitive tasks by learning to create dashboards in Excel- a critical tool in your communication armory.

As HR personnel, both policy and presentation aspects of your job are equally important. While there are many tools that can be used to create a dashboard, Excel is commonly used due to its power, flexibility and the fact that it mostly comes pre-installed on computers.

Microsoft Excel offers an inexpensive and effective way to manipulate HR data such as employee salaries, relocations, benefits and other KPIs. Create meaningful reports that make data analysis easy. You'll learn how to make the dashboard virtually maintenance-free when new data becomes available, create pivot tables needed to drive the dashboard, create great -looking visuals, add interactivity using slicers, automate elements of the dashboard with a macro and protect cells containing critical formulas.

In just 90 minutes you will be able to create your own HR Excel dashboard and classify your data records according to metrics that matter to you most.
