  • Identify patterns and trends in the data to help focus discussions and decision-making.
  • Document variables, assumptions, and code/formula necessary to generate and reproduce an experiment/analysis.
  • Collaborate with team members to ensure insights are relevant and user-friendly.
  • Assist with People Analytics owned programs, such as employee surveys, assessments, and external benchmarking.
  • Demonstrate productivity through the efficient use of time and a commitment to strong results.
