This behavior is caused because the user does not have permissions to access the username of the employees that are on the tile.

Field Level Permission (Must be enabled via Provisioning)
Cell Level Permission (Must be enabled via Provisioning)

See KBA 2434120 - Ad Hoc Report Row/Field/Cell Permissions for further information on the switches.
