  • HR Headcount Reporting Automated

    A leading Auctioneer came to xlteq to help streamline and automate their global headcount reporting. This included real-time clarification of total headcount coupled with detailed location status functionality.

    The Problem - FTE (headcount) reporting

    This task was typically an 8 day process conducted on a monthly basis.  It often contained significant errors due to the heavy manual intervention required to create the report.

    • Templates manually created and populated with data from HR system (Workday),  
    • Checked centrally
    • Distributed to 40 departments for validation – typically updating leavers and joiners
    • Collated centrally
    • Consolidated data from templates manually imported (copied and pasted) into new excel listing
    • Analysts manually filter excel list and create final reports for board


  • The Solution

    Our first task was to design a standardised template for all departments to interface.  Next we built controlling application which:

    • Automatically imported the data from Workday into 40 new workbooks based on the standardised template.
    • Consolidated data from returned templates into Excel listing
    • Automatically (through the use of excel formulae) calculated the headcount summary report


  • The Output

    The final output was a fully automated reporting suite for board use. Showing the headcount summary and backup detail reports by department.


    Template creation, consolidation and reporting reduced to 4 minutes every month.
