Tenure: Contributors - Segments

The Tenure: Contributors segments page displays two different charts:

  • Segment Data
  • Medians of Portals

In addition to the charts described on this page, each metric's Segments page allows you to view and configure verticals and view metric details. See Segments Overview.

To access the Tenure: Contributors segments page, go to Admin > Tools > Benchmark and click the Tenure: Contributors report widget.

Segment Data

The Segment Data chart displays the median number of years individual contributors stay with an organization. The Median line is the median number of years for all organizations’ individual contributors within the segment. The stripe through the middle of the chart is the Scale Break. The Scale Break appears when the values on the Y-axis are increasing, denoting a break in continuity. The circle at the top of the chart displays the Outlier Max Value, which is the highest value for the segment. For Tenure, the Outlier Max Value would be highest number of years for one organization, within the segment.

Medians of Portals

The Medians of Portals chart provides helpful data when there are portals in the Segment Data chart that might be skewing the data. For example, if there is a segment with five organizations, and four out of the five organizations has a median individual contributor tenure of three years, and one of the five organizations has many more individual contributors than the others and also has a median individual contributor tenure of 20, the larger organization may skew the data for a segment. To avoid potentially skewed data, the Medians of Portals chart uses the median individual contributor tenures of each portal, rather than the tenures of all users in the entire segment. By using the Medians of Portals, you can avoid potentially skewed data, since it displays the medians of medians.
