New SHRM-SIOP Collaborative White Paper Published


by SIOP Administrative Office

The latest collaborative white paper for HR professionals, Data Visualization: Get Visual to Drive HR's Impact and Influence, is now available on the SIOP website.

Authored by Evan F. Sinar, the paper is part of a series created by SIOP and SHRM to further the use and understanding of evidence-based HR practices. The resources created are specifically intended to infuse the science of industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology and other HR disciplines into management practices for daily use in the workplace.

Sinar, a vice president and chief scientist at DDI, has recently been elected as SIOP’s incoming Financial Officer and Secretary. He authored data visualization chapters in the book Big Data at Work and the SAGE Encyclopedia of Industrial and Organizational Psychology. He is an active social media author and curator and has been recognized as a top worldwide influencer on data visualization as well as other leading-edge topics.

Data visualization is an immensely powerful technique for exploring and communicating information. To a degree far beyond traditional text or number-based formats, well-designed visualizations make data accessible, clear, enticing, and engaging to business audiences. Yet, despite the recent surge in visualization’s use, many HR professionals aren’t proficient in these compelling approaches.

Many HR datasets are well-suited to visualization as a component of storytelling and messaging for nontechnical, professional, and executive audiences. Data visualization is also a more approachable skill than ever, with many easy-to-use and quick-to-learn tools available.

This paper provides an overview of foundational concepts for effective visualization design and a recommended set of practical resources and principles for rapidly incorporating data visualization into your own work.

The SHRM-SIOP Science of HR white paper series provides practitioner-oriented reviews of evidence-based HR practices. Other recent topics include Trends and Practices in Talent Analytics, The Bigger Picture of Employee Well-Being, and Understanding Nonstandard Work Arrangements.
