Human Resources can’t expect to keep up with a changing world by standing still. HR professionals need to equip their operations, and themselves, to function in a rapidly changing global environment.
We think of the future of HR differently than most. Many obstacles get in the way of HR success: reorganizations, M&A, talent shortages, budget pressures, employee demands, and disruptive new technologies. But at Mercer, we don’t just want you to react to these issues — we want your HR team to become an essential business function leading the way in delivering bottom-line results.
We look to HR with an eye for design. How can core HR processes like recruitment, succession, and performance management be made more efficient and effective? How can HR become a valuable business partner, central to strategy discussions? It’s all part of HR transformation.
Great design doesn’t always equate to great practice. Mercer’s proprietary HR Operations Scanner® has shown many organizations where their HR service model is falling short or where the design is misaligned with strategy. With these insights in hand, HR was able to change their operations and become a value-adding strategic player.
Mercer was named a Kennedy Vanguard in HR Transformation in the firm’s 2015 HR Consulting Report.
“Mercer’s entrance into the Vanguard this year is a direct result of the firm’s concentrated effort to strengthen the breadth and depth of its HR transformation service offering. . . . Mercer’s integrated approach reduces the complexity of HR transformation and ensures changes to HR programs are effectively communicated and adopted.” — Kennedy Information, LLC
