How To Solve The Biggest Problems With HR Dashboards


With a massive pool of jobs available, it’s getting harder and harder to retain employees at an organization. Following basic employee retention strategies like offering a higher pay is not enough. They need more than just figures. Having a system in place to appreciate the efforts put in everyday and to make their lives easier is a must. One way of doing this is reducing their daily administration problems. The constant need to open up documents and folders to look up general information is bothersome. The process of applying for leaves or reimbursements, keeping track of their attendance and late marks, and much more are all things that can be made much simpler with HR dashboards. A happy employee means a happy organization, and poaching efforts by others made futile.

To help you solve the biggest HR problem, sumHR has a set of dashboards to facilitate simplified processes.

1. Employee Dashboard

sumHR’s employee HR dashboard metrics feature provides users with a complete overview of all their statistics. It’s split into six categories:

i) Early Bird: This section shows you your average clock-in time everyday. Take a look at your consistency compared to other employees.

ii) Marathoner: Marathoner tells you your average working hours in the office. It picks up your clock-in and clock-out time everyday and calculates the average.


iii) Attendance Streak: Like the opposite of a countdown, this shows you the number of days you’ve gone without a holiday.

iv) Late Marks: This block shows the number of times you’ve been late on a monthly basis.

v) Overtime Days: Along with your average overtime hours, it shows you the number of days you’ve worked extra this month.

vi) Leaves: Based on your annual leave cycle, this sections tells you the number of leaves you’ve taken, and how many of those were unpaid/unscheduled.

2. Manager Dashboard

Manager’s HR dashboard metrics give you an overview of your own statistics just like employees, and you also have another tab titled “Managers View”. This tab gives you statistics and information about your reportees. Some of the main info includes

i) Unscheduled leaves,

ii) An average work duration of your team,

And an average overtime duration of your team compared to the company’s average.

Below this is the list of reportees. Managers can view a daily attendance streak of all reportees like their clock-in and clock-out time for the day. Another section includes the list of new joinees, reportees on probation, and reportees on notice.


A leaderboard mentioning overall statistics like early clock-ins, work durations, and attendance streak is also present. This leaderboard looks just like the first three sections in the employee dashboard.
A graphical analysis of the leave trends of all your reportees is shown at the bottom of the page.

3. Admin Dashboard

Admin’s HR analytics dashboard gives a complete company overview of all statistics. The third tab, after the employee dashboard and manager dashboard, is the admin dashboard. Three company statistics mentioned at the top include % of leaves, unscheduled leaves, and turnover.

Admins also get complete company attendance statistics on a daily basis which include the number of people who are:

i) Absent

ii) Late

iii) On Leave

iv) Present

An extra section apart from the common 3 sections of the list of new joinees, reportees on probation, and reportees on notice like the manager is – FnF pending. FnF pending shows you the employees who have left the organization but are yet to receive their final settlements.


Just like the manager view, the bottom of the page shows a graphical analysis of the entire organization’s leave trends.

sumHR also offers a couple of more dashboards to simplify data management. These are available in the software itself. Some HR dashboard examples are reviewer/reviewee dashboards in sumHR’s performance management system.
