The Weight column can be filled with values between 1 and 10 according to the importance of the displayed value. As appropriate 1 represents the least important value in the company and 10 is the most important in the given field.

In the green field we have summed up weights, the “Employee Turnover” summarizing field on the figure is the sum of the columns Cost per Hire, Turnover Cast, Turnover Rate and Time to Fill subcategories.

Unfortunately onto the picture couldn’t be placed the help table in its entirely so out of the four key performance indicator only the first and last one is visible in details.


In the column Description we have made a short description of a key performance indicator so those also can use the human resources kpi scorecard who not familiar with this field.

In column Performance the given sub KPI’s value can be seen that we score in percentage format.

The question justly arises, how did we calculate the 54% belonging to the Employee Turnover can be seen in the Total Performance line? We have mentioned in the beginning of the article that this is a group performance indicator.

The calculation is as follows:
(3*30% + 2*70% + 3*80% + 3*4%) / 7 = 54%

And with this we are done with the calculation part of the human resource KPI scorecard. And now we only have to do is to create the design.

Finally let’s make the short summery of the phrases used in the making of the human resources kpi scorecard. The knowledge of these can be useful in our future work.
