Q) When reporting on headcount – how can we filter only “employees”?
A) Use prebuilt Employee Headcount metric from:
HCM – Workforce Core -> Workforce Headcount Facts -> Facts – Workforce Headcount -> Employee Headcount
(or) You could use a filter expression on Headcount metric – by adding a new calculation:
FILTER ("HCM - Workforce Core"."Facts - Workforce Headcount"."Headcount" USING "HCM
- Workforce Core"."Employment Information"."User Person Type" IN ('Employee'))

Q) Turnover : How can we filter only action reason “resignation”?
A) Create a new calculation on delivered metrics and dimensions. For example, for this one – try the following:
FILTER ("HCM - Workforce Core"."Facts - Workforce Attrition"."Voluntary Termination Headcount" using "HCM - Workforce Core"."HR Action"."Action Reason" LIKE 'Resignation')

Q) Average Headcount metric shows the avg of period start and period end headcount - how are Start and End headcounts considered?
A) If you do not specify a time dimension filter and just pull Avg HC metric – then it considers all periods that’s available in WRKFC assignment snapshot fact table. Let’s say if the data is available from 2013, then the start would be Jan-2013 and end would be Aug-2020. This metric uses analytical functions such as FIRST_VALUE and LAST_VALUE and computes an average. Let’s say start HC for Jan-2013 is 200 and end HC for Aug-2020 is 12000, then the avg is (200+12000)/2=6100.

If you provide a time dimension filter, such as, 2015 Q1 – then the start and end would be considered from 1-Jan-2015 & 31-Mar-2015 respectively.
