WorldatWork Introduces Excel Dashboard Training for Compensation Professionals

Oct. 2, 2012 — Scottsdale, Ariz. — With today’s heightened focus on workforce analytics, compensation professionals need more tools for analysis and decision making. The solution: Excel dashboard functionality, which allows the presentation of high levels of compensation information in an interactive, consolidated view. To help compensation professionals use — and make the most of — Excel, WorldatWork, a leader in HR education for more than 55 years, has introduced Excel Dashboards: A How-to for Compensation Professionals. This self-paced skill-building course uses a real-world scenario comparing a company’s pay scales to market data, reinforcing what trainees learn and ensuring they can apply what they have learned immediately on the job.

“Compensation professionals work with a tremendous amount of employee and compensation data that they need to analyze and draw insights from,” said Kerry Chou, a Certified Compensation Professional and practice leader for WorldatWork. “Excel dashboards are a powerful way to consolidate vast amounts of data, findings and analysis into a condensed, executive summary view — making it easier to make sound business decisions and communicate those to upper management.”

Dianne Auld, considered the master of Excel training in the compensation field, teaches all nine sections of the course using self-paced Blended Learning. Excel Dashboards: A How-to for Compensation Professionals will be available beginning Oct. 23 and is available for presale now.

The course qualifies participants for one recertification credit and .75 continuing education (CEU) credit.
