    📖 Background

    In this first ever BI competition, you will be exploring a dataset for a fictitious software company called Atlas Labs. You'll have to import, analyze, and visualize the data using Tableau.

    The end goal will be a clean, self-explanatory, and interactive dashboard for the HR team of Atlas Labs. By conducting a thorough exploratory data analysis and creating visualizations, you'll dive deeper into attrition and what factors impact attrition. This analysis will help the organization determine what action they will need to take to retain more employees.

    💪 Challenge

    Using Tableau, create an interactive dashboard to summarize your research. Things to consider:

    1. Make your dashboard stand out! Give it a unique look and feel.
    2. Visualize the biggest differences in salary, attrition, job satisfaction level, and work-life balance across demographics and other dimensions. Don't feel limited by these, you're encouraged to use your skills to consolidate as much information as possible.
    3. Create a screenshot of your (main) Tableau dashboard, and past that in the designated field.
    4. Summarize your findings in an executive summary.

    ✅ Checklist before publishing

    • Don't forget to publish your Tableau dashboard, make it available on Tableau Public and share the link.
    • Although you use Workspace, a notebook style document that contains text cells (what you're reading right now), you only should paste the link, the executive summary, and a screenshot of your Tableau dashboard in the designated fields. Also, leave the notebook name as notebook.ipynb.
    • Remove redundant text cells like the background, the data, challenge, and checklist. You can add cells if necessary, but your focus should be on the Tableau dashboard.
