Building a People Graph with R

The McKinsey People Analytics team has combined R and Neo4j to build a People Graph to helps us leverage the networks of people, skills, and expertise in our Firm. To this end, we’ve built an R package that allows efficient querying and server management for Neo4J using bolt, R, and cypher-shell.

We will present a quick overview of both the theoretical and technical sides of our use case. Theory: by combining various HR data sources in a graph db, we are able to analyze communities of people, identify pockets of expertise, and understand social networks in the Firm. This has already made impact in our talent management strategy. Technical: We’ve developed an R package (neo4jshell) that allows us to integrate Neo4j into our broader existing workstreams, such as Oracle dbs and R. We’d like to encourage other R developers to check out this package for their own use cases.
