“This is a very rare search opportunity within the HR construct,” said Nat Schiffer. “Very few firms are committing the resources to people analytics that Mars Veterinary Health is committing. This search will afford a successful candidate to set the bar not only with respect to human capital data science but also how that data can help shape decisions and help close critical talent gaps where and when  human capital metrics are tied to operating performance and revenue.”

The Senior Director of Global People Analytics & Insights will be responsible for managing Mars Veterinary Health’s people analytics capabilities and services, and providing relevant insight for the people & organization team, the MVH leadership team, and the organization more broadly.  This role will manage a team of data and analytics professionals who develop and cultivate a strong collaborative partnership with leaders in the MVH Data & Analytics and IT teams to further the P&O data science roadmap.
