BlackRock's Analytics Insights and Research (AIR) team develops in-depth and impactful analyses, insights, and recommendations that help drive the firm's talent, diversity, employee engagement, and hiring agendas. We are proud to partner with business leaders in pursuit of better people decisions, by applying the same type of sophisticated analysis we do for investment decisions.
Talent Insights Partners work closely with BlackRock leaders to analyze and interpret human capital data in support BlackRock's strategic talent initiatives.

In this role, you will represent Talent Insights throughout the organization; this includes responsibility for formulating, articulating, and executing vision and strategy, managing, and enhancing people analytics data quality, as well as evangelizing and enabling the wider HR function and business to use, action and measure the outcomes of people analytics.
Success will be achieved through leading a team that provides partnership to the global organization around critical people decisions. This will include partnering with HR leadership and the head of Employee Listening in mapping the employee lifecycle, highlighting the moments that matter and designing and/or implementing tools that measure, provide insights and create actions that support these. Beyond the Talent Insights team and your AIR colleagues, you will have the opportunity to influence a geographically diverse team consisting of a broad range of Human Resources professionals with varying analytical responsibilities. We will look to you to counsel and coach this distributed team on how to create meaningful insights that lead to improved business and workforce outcomes.
