Regular reporting enables HR to keep a finger on the pulse of the organisation by tracking key workforce metrics across each individual, team and department, no matter where they are based. New trends and opportunities can be spotted early on and emerging problems can be addressed before they become significant hurdles.
Employee reports and analytics can also help managers in doing their job better. HR reports can inform managers about relevant developments in their teams and departments. For example, if the marketing department struggles with high turnover and a high time-to-hire, managers will be more likely to put emphasis on retaining employees and will be aware of risks like longer replacement times when someone is about to leave.
