Building a people analytics function in a global Fortune 50 company is as wonderful an opportunity as it is a significant undertaking. This was the challenge facing my guest today, Ian O’Keefe, when he took the role as Global Head of Workforce Analytics at JPMorgan Chase in June 2016. Ian and I walk through his journey in building the function at the bank as well as reflecting on his 10 years in the space, which has included people analytics roles at Google, Sears, and American Express.
