Previously Gannett’s Human Resources monthly HR Executive report was a text-based, 25-page report, compiled through a data call and manually updated by Gannett’s legacy reporting team and various members of the HR team. After Gannett and TEGNA split, a new People Analytics team was formed. One of their first charters was streamlining reporting to create an overall HR Executive Dashboard.
Gannett’s People Analytics team used Tableau to combine all relevant data fields from multiple systems and create an overall HR Executive Dashboard for the Gannett executive team (GET).
The new HR GET report consists of 12 interactive dashboards across multiple categories such as labor spend, demographics, hiring, requisitions, and terminations. The report also includes a “special interest” analysis dashboard to highlight a relevant monthly topic, helping leadership understand the impact of decisions. For example, in the case of an acquisition, they can understand the implications on HR metrics.
“Tableau has allowed our People function to provide better and more relevant data, supporting decisions around our human capital. Our function provides consistent and relevant data, helping to drive our business forward," commented Dave Harmon, Chief Human Capital Officer.
Today, Gannett moved to a single Ceridian Human Capital Management system, where they continue to source data for executive reporting.
