12. JPMorgan Chase's Global Head of Workforce Analytics, Ian O'Keefe on Building a Successful People Analytics Team

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.

Ian is one of the most knowledgeable, experienced, and insightful leaders in the space so I know that listeners will enjoy this episode of the podcast. In this episode, Ian and I talk about:

  • The three-year build of workforce analytics at JPMorgan Chase, which he built from the ground up
  • The skills and capabilities you need in a people or workforce analytics team
  • How to balance demand for analytics from the business with prioritising the work
  • We reflect on the people analytics space, in general, based on Ian's unique perspective of having worked in several sectors like tech, banking, and retail
  • And like we do with all our guests we look into the crystal ball and ponder what the role of HR will be in 2025.

This episode is a must-listen for anyone in a workforce or people analytics role. HR and business professionals interested in how people data can drive business outcomes. And CHROs looking to build or scale their people analytics headquarters.
