The Background Of The Diversity and Inclusion Use Case

Our client is an engineering company that is committed to retaining its highly competent and skillful workforce, attracting the best talent and developing and deploying the diverse knowledge and experience of its employees.

The backdrop to this was also all the noise that they had heard concerning the Valley’s challenges with the very same issues.

Initially, they wanted to analyze their current situation to understand the nature of the issue.

Subsequently, they desired to get a short-term action plan and a long-term strategy to future-proof the solution.

Our Analysis

We analyzed the issue with data fed from various sources, developed a quick prototype and introduced it with a storyboard and vital statistics.

The view to your right was the instant C-Level view created using the Design Thinking approach. This view was more attuned to the C-Level executive’s requirement for fast and meaningful information delivered just right.

The CHRO’s view was further broken down for the HR Business partner in specific aspects. It was detailed but not overwhelming.

Our design thinking strategy was front and center while designing the user experience. This detailed “StoryBoard” could also be effectively used by mid-level managers as well as information analysts who want to study deeper and broader aspects of the data.
