MHR Challenge - Visualise Your Organisation

"As organisations engage more with their employees, visualising the shape of the organisation, social connections and job skills is becoming more and more important. Being able to quickly locate people by skill, influence, location and performance rating are all requirements in today’s organisational management. Simply viewing the organisation from the top down is no longer enough, so our challenge to the coders is to come up with innovative ideas for visualising the organisation."
