Job Details

Do you have strong analytical skills and a passion for helping others? Does the idea of being challenged on a daily basis to lead the HR analytics for a company with 65,000 employees excite you? JBS USA, North America’s largest meat processing company, recognizes the importance of utilizing an analytical approach in its efforts to lead, manage, and protect its people. As the leader of our HR Analytics and Compensation Function, you will be a key member of a team that influences decisions that impact each and every one of our employees.  This position is based at our Corporate Headquarters in Greeley, CO.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Ownership of HR & Safety Analytics and Compensation (e.g., safety and health analytics, survey instruments, base compensation, incentive compensation, performance management analytics, etc.), enterprise-wide
  • Development and production of reports and dashboards (“descriptive statistics”)
  • Regular utilization of advanced statistical methods (survey analysis, regression analysis, significance testing, etc.) to analyze issues and assess causation, predict outcomes
  • Frequent research into issues of importance (pay and motivation, retention, engagement, surveys, etc.) in order to make informed decisions and utilize best practices
  • Frequent communication with all levels and areas of the organization
    • Communicating complex concepts in a way that makes sense to decision makers
    • Persuading leaders to consider potential explanations or actions that may seem foreign or go against the “prevailing wisdom”
    • “Customer service” for the business
  • Frequent coordination/facilitation/leadership of projects involving a cross-section of the organization
  • Some travel required (not more than 25%)


Desired Qualifications:

  • A bachelor’s degree in a quantitative field (economics, statistics, mathematics, finance, engineering, etc.) or completion of a master’s program that has a significant quantitative component
  • Experience working with and analyzing data, with a good understanding of advanced statistical concepts like regression analysis.
  • Experiences outside of work and school that show pursuit of a passion
  • Excellent time management and organizational skills
  • Driven, constantly striving to accomplish goals

The most important skills and characteristics that will lead to success in this role are:


Let’s assume that, on average, each of the 65,000 JBS employees goes home to two other family members each night. That means the company has an opportunity to impact over 200,000 lives each day. If you are a compassionate person, you will be passionate about this job, because you will be positively impacting thousands of people.


Formally, we have seven key values that drive our culture at JBS – Humility, Sincerity, Simplicity, Discipline, Determination, Availability, and Ownership. We sometimes say that our eighth, unwritten value is optimism. If you’re looking for a job, this is likely to be one of, if not the, most challenging opportunities you come across. We also believe it has the chance to be the most rewarding one you have a chance to apply for. If you’re the type of person who wants to “be the change you want to see,” and is willing to come into work every day optimistic that we’ll achieve our goals, we want to work with you.

Leadership Skills

This is not an individual contributor role. You will have responsibility for leading and developing the team. You’ll also be responsible for leading key initiatives and cross-departmental groups to solutions. The willingness and ability to empathize with others, make tough decisions when needed, and stand up for the right decisions is a must.

Strong Analytical Skills

This is a very analytical job. If you like looking for answers in data and using analysis to drive decision-making, and you are good at it, you will be right at home. The ability to analyze a problem conceptually, and then translate that concept into a functional analysis will be fundamental to your success. A strong understanding of statistical concepts, such as statistical vs. practical significance, correlation, causation, control variables, and regression analysis will help.

The Ability to Effectively Communicate with Others

You will have the opportunity to work with a wide range of people in this role, from executives to entry-level employees. The ability to relate to different types of people and understand their needs is a must. You will also need to take complex concepts and communicate them in a way that is easily understood by someone who is learning about them for the first time.

The Willingness and Ability to Learn New Things

If you want to come to work every day and do the same repetitive tasks, this job may not be the best fit. There are certainly aspects of this job that will be repetitive, but you will be working on a variety of projects, and building analyses and processes from the ground up. At times, you will be challenged to become a subject matter expert on something that you previously had no knowledge of. There will be plenty of support and guidance, but you will need to be willing to step outside of your comfort zone at times.
