HR systems & reporting specialist
Many companies are still struggling to apply Big Data to produce quality insights, but Mackenzie Investments’ Lavender Jajj is ahead of the game. After being promoted to HR systems specialist last year, she began managing the company’s data in a SAP platform and conducting analysis to support senior management’s business decisions. She also helped implement an employee self-service system through SAP, and conducted the research and selection process for new exit interview software. In addition, she sourced software that can be used to create an HR dashboard, which has greatly reduced the time needed to prepare reporting; she also took existing HR org chart software and streamlined the time to prepare companywide org charts. In the interests of sharing best practice, Jajj is more than willing to pass on her expertise to other employees.
