Tableau analytics has also helped to improve many aspects of Luxoft’s HR function, resulting in greater transparency and more efficient operations. Embedded dashboards have replaced Excel spreadsheets for the monitoring of HR processes such as appraisals, training, benefits, salaries, promotions and more, allowing HR team members to quickly see an employees’ full history on a single visualisation, whenever required.
Recruitment is another key area, with Tableau used to track all current job vacancies alongside projected future resourcing requirements, in line with predicted company growth. This approach allows the team to stay ahead of curve, proactively managing the workforce rather than reacting to resourcing issues as and when they arise.
“Tracking key HR processes in Tableau rather than Excel means the team can visualise and interrogate data sets far more quickly and accurately than before, resulting in more efficient overall operations,” says Natalia. “An effective HR function means happier, more satisfied employees, helping to reduce turnover and minimise avoidable crunch points that are caused by poor planning and inadequate staffing levels.”
Going forward, the Data and Analytics team is planning to implement a number of new Tableau initiatives across the business. These include embedded tips and navigation assistance on Tableau Server, rebranding dashboard designs to improve consistency, and automating reporting processes in additional areas including finance.
“At our last count, we had around 1,000 users of Tableau server, working with over 700 active dashboards across 80 projects or more,” says Alex. “As its popularity continues to grow within Luxoft, we have created a clear path towards improving the functionality we can offer to make employees’ day-to-day lives even easier, as well as improving the efficiency of the business as a whole.”
