Real examples of our work are somewhat hard to share due to client confidentiality, however we do occasionally work with companies outside our usual HR / employee-data domain and these can be excellent windows into the type of work we deliver.
For the publication of today’s Financial Times / Bowen Cragg & Co Index of corporate online effectiveness we created two interactive visualisations to let readers explore the data set in greater detail, and for the first time, to personalise the scores based what is important to them.
The first visualisation let’s you see the progress of the 30 companies who have been present in all editions of the report. We give the user the ability to highlight the company that interests them. Highlighting was chosen to give context to the results rather than the more usual filtering.
The lower panel lets the user explore the components of the total score by company and year.
The second one is similar to several of our tools for scenarios. By changing assumptions – in this case weightings for the components – the overall data is changed. Here we use a slopegraph to show change from one state (no weightings) to another (weightings). We then show ‘top 10 movers’ lists.
The key of all these types of visualisations is to make them interesting to explore and visually appealing. We hope that we have achieved those aims here.
