New Campus Workforce Planning Dashboards are now available!

August 27, 2015

Did you know that two-thirds of our staff are vested with retirement benefits? Or, that almost one in ten have a high likelihood of retiring in the near future?  These and other such nuggets of information are now available on a new Cal Answers dashboard called Staff Retirement Metrics.

The Analytics & Metrics team from Central HR worked with the Cal Answers IT team to provide data that can help managers anticipate their retirement attrition and plan for it. Intuitive interface and compelling visualization provide managers a helpful tool to understand their workforce and better plan resources.
