Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany is a leading science and technology company with more than 50,000 employees in healthcare, life science, and performance materials.
Merck KGaA’s approach is unusual in that it combines Organization Development (OD) and People Analytics to deliver practical and differentiated support to the business. Today the team is no longer asked to provide data. Instead, it is asked to provide input on what the data means as well as recommendations for interventions.
“At Merck KGaA, it’s not just HR doing analytics for HR. Our people analytics aims to increase the quality of people capital and the organizational decisions we make.” – Anna Lena Fritzsche, Organization Development & People Analytics Expert, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany
