Deloitte Consulting LLP has acquired substantially all of the assets of California-based Bersin & Associates LLC. Deloitte is now poised to provide the talent marketplace with broad H.R. and talent management solutions ranging from data, research and analysis, strategic insights and technology selection through final implementation.
“The rise of globalization, changes in the labor model, shifting workforce dynamics and significant cost pressures are elevating the strategic importance of the H.R. function among the C-suite,” says Deloitte’s Barbara Adachi. “The acquisition provides our clients with an enhanced portfolio of H.R. and talent management research, benchmarking and advisory services to help them address these challenges — all from a single source. Together, we can help companies navigate the future direction of HR while adding strategic value to their bottom line.”
The intact Bersin team will remain focused on delivering analytics, research and tools that employers use as a foundation for day-to-day decision making. It will operate under the name “Bersin by Deloitte.”
“Through this acquisition, Bersin will gain dedicated resources to expand into new content areas, globalize our offering, enhance our information services platform, and provide human-resource-level insights and services,” says Josh Bersin, founder, CEO and president of Bersin & Associates. “We are excited about the combination both firms will bring to help clients manage the spectrum of their talent management needs to serve the workforce of the future.”
