Best Power BI Dashboard Examples for HR, Finance, and Project Management teams

Lately, we have had a lot of organizations asking more about how data visualization works. They want to know if we have any Power BI examples. If not Power BI, perhaps examples from other platforms?

That is why we want to share some data visualization examples with you to give you a better understanding of how these platforms can help your organization. Below are three Microsoft Power BI dashboards we created for clients to provide you with a better insight into how this platform can help your organization visualize your data for better analysis and execution.

Power BI Dashboards Examples

The examples below give you an idea of what you can do with Power BI dashboards set up expressly to your needs.

As a bonus, we embedded these dashboards into this post to interact with the dashboard features to find out how easy they are to use for your organization. Note: the numbers and info below have been changed to protect our client’s privacy.

1. Project Management Dashboard

We created the first Power BI dashboard for an Audio/Video manufacturing company to test their projects, resource allotments, and skills development. The reports helped our clients enhance the effectiveness of their projects.

The example below has several charts in one central location to explain how multiple projects worked holistically.
The reports offer information about:

  • Number of active projects
  • Project status
  • Project budget
  • Task Management
  • Resource Utilization

With simple coloring designs, executives can glance at the report and see how many projects are:

  • In-Progress/Awaited
  • Good
  • Warning
  • Risk

Furthermore, employees can access the status of specific projects like those at risk by clicking on the red areas of the report.

2. HR Analytics Dashboard

Often specific departments in a company reach out to us because they need a Power BI dashboard for their specific needs. For example, we helped an engineering firm’s clients’ HR department with a dashboard to improve their strategic personnel resource management.

In other words, the HR team could use this visual data to improve their decisions on hiring, onboarding, and retaining employees. These decisions can affect many things throughout the organization, including better work environments, higher employee productivity, and even a possible increase in the bottom line.

To help the HR department, we created several reports with information on:

  • Demographics- gender, ethnicity, designation, locations, seniority, etc.
  • Awards- annual performances, award types, promotions, and raises
  • Hiring- number of applications, prospective employee demographics, and positions
  • Terminations- demographic, location, job function, and tenure for terminated employees

By having access to this demographic and geographic data, the HR department can ensure they follow best practices in their organization and follow all state and federal guidelines for hiring, retaining, and terminating employees.

3. Financial Dashboard

Another department that greatly benefits from data visualization dashboards is the finance department. With so many numbers to account for (no pun intended) in finance, it is not surprising that many departments want easy ways to understand their financials.

That is why we use Power BI to track common financial measurements such as:

  • Balance Sheets
  • Cash Flow
  • Profit & Loss Statements
  • Liabilities and Expenditures
  • YoY comparisons- up to 2 years of Assets, Liabilities, Income, and Expenditures
  • Rations- working capital, KPIs (loss ratio, quick ratio, etc.)

Final Thoughts
If you are looking for a better way to understand your data, then the right Power BI dashboard can help your entire team analyze and act on your data more effectively. We can easily customize these dashboards to your specific business needs or connect with the data source of your choice in a reasonable time and cost.
