PwC US Announces Intent to Acquire HumanR, Inc. --Workplace Survey Provider to Complement Saratoga™, PwC's Workforce Analytics and Survey Group--
NEW YORK and WASHINGTON, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PwC US today announced its intent to acquire substantially all the assets of HumanR, a Herndon, VA-based consulting firm specializing in organizational development consulting. HumanR will become a part of PwC's Human Resource Services (HRS) practice, within its Saratoga™ workforce analytics team.
PwC's focus on workforce analytics is aligned with HumanR's mission to help organizations create a better, more trust-based and productive work environment for employees. Through the acquisition, PwC will not only gain intellectual and analytical capabilities and technology platforms, it will also combine two of the leading names in workforce analytics and employee surveys.
"With talent management of critical interest to companies today, the effective use of workforce analytics is essential to helping organizations attract, retain and develop talent," says Nik Shah, a leader of PwC's Saratoga practice. "HumanR's strong brand and excellent client relationships with HR executives at companies of all sizes and across industries make it a perfect match for PwC's comparable workforce analytics capabilities. Together, we will further enhance our ability to harness the power of workforce data for our clients, enabling them to make better workforce decisions that drive business growth."
HumanR has a long history of providing HR and organizational leaders with the tools to measure and improve employee performance and retention. HumanR offers data driven strategic consulting through its workforce surveys, 360 feedback programs, competency modeling, performance management tools, leadership development programs and training services.
Mary Saily, CEO of HumanR notes, "We at HumanR are thrilled to be joining PwC, a world-class organization with a depth and breadth of resources that will enable us to better serve clients and to bring them added value and extended service offerings."
Ms. Saily will join PwC as a leader in the PwC Saratoga practice. Burgess Levin, founder of HumanR, will serve as a senior executive consultant. The deal is expected to close in November.
Based in Herndon, Va., and founded in 1975, HumanR provides corporations and government agencies with tools for managing the employee life cycle and developing strategic talent.
