About the job
At Google, data drives all of our decision-making, and our HR organization is no exception. The People Analytics team acts as an internal innovation lab, using analytical approaches to make sure Google continues to be a great place to work. The team provides critical support to the business around issues of organizational health and is responsible for not just taking the pulse of our Googlers, but harnessing Googler feedback to drive change for the better. As an analyst you'll be detail-oriented and conscientious, analytical and curious. You're a strong problem-solver, who uses both quantitative and qualitative methods to get things done. And on top of it all, you're someone who wonders "What if?" and then seeks out the solution.
As a People Analyst, you'll work with the Reporting and Insights or Workforce Planning team. Reporting and Insights (R&I) is the team that supports Google's People Partners across all regions. Each People Partner has a specific R&I person of contact who serves as their interface for advanced people data, reporting, and insights needs, backed by a team of analysts to assist with data requests. Workforce Planning (WFP) is the strategy, analytical forecasting, and planning process that connects an organization’s business strategy with its people strategy. As a People Analyst, you'll ensure that the team and your clients are well-informed and able to make thoughtful, data-driven decisions. You will create action-oriented analyses that translate how hiring, organization shape, location strategy, promotion rates, attrition etc. affect a business’ site strategy, top-line growth, and bottom-line results.
Great just isn't good enough for our People Operations team (you probably know us better as "Human Resources"). Made up of equal parts HR professionals, former consultants, and analysts, we're the advocates of Google's colorful culture. In People Ops, we "find them, grow them, and keep them". We bring the world's most innovative people to Google and provide the programs that help them thrive. Whether recruiting the next Googler, refining our core programs, developing talent, or simply looking for ways to inject some more fun into the lives of our Googlers, we bring a data-driven approach that is reinventing the human resources field.
Manipulate and analyze large data sets to distill insights from data and connect disparate ideas into cohesive, well-grounded recommendations using creative and structured presentations.
Develop and automate data and analytics solutions, iteratively build and prototype effective, scalable, and easy to understand reporting solutions (e.g. dashboards) to provide insights at scale.
Build relationships and collaborate with teammates, business leaders, HR clients, and HR application engineers to solve organizational problems and provide organizations with high quality data.
Prioritize work to manage multiple workstreams, high pressure situations, and new information.
