Designing an HR Dashboard: Strategically Leveraging Your Data

| Workshop


School leaders often rely on analytics to inform critical financial decisions and their strategic initiatives in admissions, fundraising, curriculum development and budgeting. Yet personnel and staffing decisions are rarely informed by data, even though salary and benefits account for up to 80% of a school's operating budget. NBOA has created a powerful tool to help you tell your school’s human resources story in a concise graphical dashboard. This workshop will help you decide which elements to include in your customized dashboard based upon your strategic goals and particular circumstances. Join us to learn about tracking relevant HR metrics for your school and conveying your staffing story to leadership.

Please note: Schools participating in this workshop should have already downloaded and installed NBOA’s HR Dashboard. The workshop is intended to provide more context for the tool and a better understanding of its uses.

Recommended Audience: Heads of School, Business Officers, Human Resources Professionals, and Controllers

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn about the uses of personnel-related metrics.
  • Participants will examine ways to gather and organize metrics so they analyze more accurate data.
  • Participants will determine appropriate partners for data collection and identify the intended audience for the HR dashboard.
  • Participants will identify school-specific metrics and begin to develop their HR dashboard.
