How to Illustrate HR Topics: Needs and Values in Business

One of the biggest presentation challenges is to convey our thoughts into right and attractive visuals.

Have troubles with showing employee needs and values in an engaging way?  This blog is an ideal place to discover ideas to illustrate HR or training ppt. Or to find general inspiration.

If your task is to create a presentation or a slide for such topic, we designed a solution 🙂

The trick is to use an accurate symbol for every concept you want to share with your audience. Take a look at the first usage example of a hierarchy of employee needs – classical Maslow pyramid.

The first thing that strikes the eye is that every level is colored differently. Next thing you notice – clear icons that illustrate words near them (the words are the last factor which people usually notice while looking at such slide). And finally, the semi-transparent arrow going up, which shows the level of employee engagement.

Note: Presented graphics is available in Needs and Business Values PPT icon set. See details by clicking the pictures.

With such wide icons range – from personal needs to business values – you can create any chart or diagram you need. And our second example is employee engagement factors, presented in a circle:

You can see that each element is represented by a particular symbol: financial rewards – by a pile of coins, personal growth – by a growing plant, leadership – by a hand holding a flag, work relationships – by spheres, connected with each other, work satisfaction – classical thumbs up symbol, flexibility – bending spring.

The next diagram you can recall from any HR meeting, business conference or company presentation:

With simple shapes and icons, you can illustrate all company values and present its culture.
