  • On the snapshot dashboard, Under the “Distribution by Tenure %” the numbers don’t make sense for a total percentage of 100%. If I hover my mouse over the top of every column, it shows how many we currently have, but it is not a percentage. Can you advise how to explain this table?

    • The Distribution by Tenure is not a % it’s the number of employees present in each tenure category. The rest of the section under tenure shows the average tenure in years.

      Best wishes.

  • Hello,
    there are exit types which I do not need to be included into the retention calculation, as example, internal changes or exits due to force major like COVID, where we as employer was not able to do anything to keep people. Is it possible somehow to update table accordingly?
    Also there is not much value of monthly (1 month ) retention. We would be happy to have Tenure of 2 years. It means that our retention should be calculated for each 24 consecutive months. Can it be applied?
    Also it is very important to see retention for each department separately to identify the most problematic once. Can it be done?
    Thank you in advance.

  • My agency does in-house promotion. Is there something I can do to include those types of numbers on the dashboard? We also have employees who transfer to another state agency. Is there away to add that to the dashboard? I also do not see a decline position area. Can that be added as well?

    • Thank you for showing interest in our template.

      Currently, the template is not designed to track internal job transfer/promotion. We can take this as a customization project for a fee. Please write to for estimation.

      Best wishes.
