Pune-headquartered insights & analytics player SG Analytics (SGA) has appointed Dr Kiran Bala (pictured above) as Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO). In this role, she will lead SG Analytics’ global HR strategy to improve operational effectiveness and align with the company’s business priorities as it continues along its growth story.

Dr Bala will work along with SGA’s global HR team and senior leaders to design programmes that focus on employer brand, employee experience, and talent practices. The company has offices in New York, Seattle, Austin, San Francisco, Toronto, London, Zurich, Pune, Bangalore, and Hyderabad. 

Sushant Gupta, SG Analytics' Founder & CEO, said: "Leading a talented and global workforce is an essential ingredient for our success. As we continue to grow, Kiran’s extensive global experience, clear vision, and strong leadership skills will help us attract, grow, and provide a career-defining experience to our team members."

The organisation has grown in both revenue and team members in the last couple of years, currently having over 1,100 employers, of which more than half were added in the last three years.

New CHRO Dr Bala brings over 18 years of experience leading HR teams at global organisations. Most recently, she served as Head of HR for UST BlueConch, and has previously tenured with SKF, Persistent Systems, Schaeffler Group, IBM, and M&M, in roles to lead people teams that manage all aspects of HR. She is passionate about building high performance teams, strengthening culture, and learning and development.

On her appointment, she said: "I look forward to strengthening people practices, experiencing the brand promise of 'life’s possible' with (an) inclusive, meaningful, and positive work environment, and attracting best in-class talent.”

The addition of the CHRO to SGA's executive leadership team follows the launch of a new profit sharing plan, and the recent appointments of Kulwinder Singh as Chief Marketing Officer, Ankit Rastogi as Head of Financial and Consulting Services, and Nishant Singh as Head of Products.
