  • Create reports, visualizations and analysis for a variety of leadership levels that facilitate evidence-based business decisions. This includes both executive-level PowerPoint style presentations as well as technical dashboards/charts.

  • Remain up-to-date on current trends/breakthroughs in people analytics tools and technology to determine new opportunities for PSJH.

  • Act as a professional and technical mentor/role-model for more junior analysts or other caregivers earlier in their data analytics maturity; assist in ongoing training/education efforts to promote data maturity across the organization.
