Source | | David Green

To build sustainable success in people analytics, you need a few key ingredients. Let’s look at three. First, align the work of the people analytics team to the business strategy and priorities. Second in parallel, be intentional about building analytical capability across the wider HR function and third, get the sponsorship from the Chief Human Resources Officer, the Global HR Leadership Team and Senior Leaders in the business.

My guest on this episode of the podcast has mixed all of these ingredients and more since founding the people analytics team at Merck, in 2016. Alexis Saussinan is the Group Head of People Data and Technology, and the function he has built has become a bedrock of Merck’s people strategy and consistently delivers value to the business and the global workforce at Merck.
