Using the Interactive Charts

Explore and customize the interactive dashboard by filtering the data that is useful to you — and creating a customized visualization to share.

Data Customization

Use the drop-down menus in the control module on the dashboard to discover the information most relevant to you.


1. View by worker satisfaction, industry, and other parameters allows you to set a filtering parameter to view results by industry, geographic region, or how long an organization has been operating.

2. Filter Results allows you to drill down to the specific segment of data you are interested in viewing.

Saving Your Customized Visualizations

After you’ve applied filters and other customizations to an interactive chart, you can download a PDF of your customized view using the tools at the bottom of the visualization.

Share or Embed the Interactive Chart

You can share an interactive chart — either the view you created or the original view — with your network or on your website by using the tools at the bottom right-hand corner of the visualization. There are options for linking a chart to your Facebook and Twitter feeds, and for embedding it into your own website.

About the Data

To understand the challenges organizations face managing their workforces as they continue to progress in their digital transformations, MIT Sloan Management Review, in collaboration with Deloitte, conducted its ninth annual survey of nearly 3,900 business executives, managers, and analysts from organizations around the world.

The survey, conducted in the fall of 2019, captured insights from individuals in 126 countries and 28 industries at organizations of various sizes. More than two-thirds of the respondents were from outside the U.S. The sample was drawn from a number of sources, including MIT Sloan Management Review readers, Deloitte Dbriefs webcast subscribers, and other interested parties.

In addition to obtaining the survey results, we interviewed business executives from a number of industries and academia to understand how organizations are investing in their workforces today. These executives and subject-matter specialists bring unique perspectives to the evolving relationship between the organization and worker. In some cases, the executives we spoke with are spearheading novel approaches to workforce investment and the role of the worker in a digital age. A number of executives come from HR, but many don’t.
