Ciphr : The Manpower Indices Report – An explanation of the report’s content and calculations

The Manpower Indices report is a standard report within Ciphr People. By default, the report is located within the ‘Reports’ > ‘Manpower’ menu.

The report output is broken down into three distinct sections; Stability Index, Skill Conservation Index, Labour Wastage.

When a user runs the report, they should be prompted for a date. This user specified date is used in each of the three report sections, detailed below.

The report establishes the following figures, using the methods outlined:

12 months service at

[user specified date] This is a record count of staff who have 12 months service or more as at the date specified by the user.

Staff as at [one year prior to the user specified date] This is a simple headcount, based only on start dates and leaving dates of individuals.

Staff as at [user specified date] This is a simple headcount as above, based on start dates and leaving dates.

Leavers
A count of staff who left in the year up to the user specified date. This is a simple count of staff records with leaving dates in the date range.

Average Staff
The average headcount is established using the basic formula of (Staff at one year before the user specified date+Staff at the user specified date)/2.

Stability Index
This section of the report shows the number of staff with 12 months service or more as at the date specified by the user running the report, and the headcount one year prior to the specified date.
The percentage figure represents the number of staff with 12 months service or more as a percentage of the headcount one year before the date specified.

Skill Conservation Index
This section again shows a count of staff with 12 months service or more as at the date specified by the user, but this time compares this figure with a headcount as at the same date. The percentage figure shows the percentage of the headcount records with 12 months service or more.

Labour Wastage
This section shows the number of leavers in the one year period up to the user-specified date, and the average headcount in the period. The percentage figure shows the wastage, or percentage of leavers in the period against the average headcount.
