New: HR Analytics template in Power BI

It looks like you've all really waited too long for this Power BI template! It's beginning to become the most popular one so far. This month, our focus was on HR analytics.

The Human Resources Power BI dashboard allows users to get a clear overview of the company's employees and the most relevant top-level KPIs: Headcount, Salaries, Hires, and Terminations. The 4 subsequent pages provide a more detailed view of each of the KPIs and the demographics.

The landing page already includes some reporting elements – the icons function as navigation buttons to different report pages where topics like Salary, Demographics, Hires, and terminations are covered.

Additionally, you'll find a “report tutorials” button where some tips on how to use a report are presented which can provide a better understanding for the end-users.

On the overview page, there are some top-level KPIs and category splits including Employment type, Education, and Satisfaction. In the top right, you can use report navigation to move on to the next page and dig further.

What does it all look like? There's a full demo of this template in the August Product Update video above!

New to Zebra BI? Then this guide is a must-watch for you!

One of our BI specialists, Lili Alesnik, remembers what was her biggest struggle when she began her Power BI journey. She admits the hardest part was transforming a given data set into powerful visualizations and a clear message for the viewer.

That's why she created this beginner's guide that shows you how to build your first Zebra BI dashboard in under 8 minutes.

You'll use Zebra BI Cards to present top targets, and Zebra BI Tables to get into the detailed structure. You'll finish off by presenting time trends with Zebra BI Charts and having a look at the report to get some insights.

The best thing is, that you really don't need any Power BI knowledge to be able to build this outstanding report.
