(1) Each of the mentioned operating figures measures something different which is why its included in the Cockpit (integration approach; counters the one-sided highlighting of a single operating figure such as satisfaction or commitment, for example);
(2) Each operating figure is graphically represented in a box plot. Box plots visualise the distribution of data with a box and the so-called whiskers, the vertical lines at the top and bottom of the box. In the box, a horizontal bar shows the median value and a square point visualises the average value;
(3) An assumed given 4-point scale results in extreme average values of “1.0” and “4.0”. The multi-coloured displays in-between signalise positive and negative areas of the actually produced average values (green = very good/good; yellow = satisfactory; red = insufficient) with a gradual problem pressure in order to initiate measures for improvement.
(4) The operating figures compiled in the HR Management Cockpit and their ascertained specifications can be transferred into an operating figures spinmap for better comparison (see fig.)
