The acquisition builds upon Mercer’s consulting strength and capabilities in talent management and reinforces its commitment to employee engagement.
Mercer, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies Inc., has acquired Sirota Consulting LLC (Sirota), an employee engagement solutions company that offers the full breadth of organisational assessments, surveys, technology and analytics. The acquisition builds upon Mercer’s consulting strength and capabilities in talent management, and reinforces its commitment to employee engagement.
Sirota, a well-established global brand with over 40 years of experience, conducts surveys with over one million employees annually across 130 countries and 80 languages. With organisational research, Sirota’s advisory capabilities and technologies span across engagement, team effectiveness, leadership and culture. Combined with sophisticated analytics and data mining tools, Sirota’s surveys offer clients real-time insight from engagement data. It then uses advanced analytics to help HR identify where leaders, employees, strategy and culture are misaligned, uncovering hidden factors that drive performance and support positive change.
“Employee engagement is one of the most important human capital issues facing business leaders today, and the acquisition of Sirota strengthens our consulting insights by ensuring access to leading expertise and data-driven employee survey research programmes for our clients,” said Ilya Bonic, Mercer president, Career.
“Our mission is to help our clients solve their business problems through employee research,” said John Mallozzi, chief executive officer at Sirota. “Both Mercer and Sirota have the tools, technology, and insights to help organisations execute their strategy, enhance their talent management programmes, and unlock the full potential of their workforce.” The terms of the agreement were, however, not disclosed.
