HR Benefits Consulting Seeing Increased Demand in Kennedy’s New Market Sizing and Rankings Study Short and long-term growth identified in Kennedy’s exclusive data, covering the entire HR consulting market — and featuring a deeper dive into HR Benefits. Business Wire KEENE, N.H. -- May 17, 2013 Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory, the leader in market analysis on the consulting profession, announces the launch of Human Resources Consulting Market Index 2013: Quarter 1. Initial findings reveal that, although a great deal of HR benefits work centers around reducing and mitigating corporate and public sector risk in the defined benefits plans, legal changes in the definitions of full- and part-time employees — as well as new rules concerning executive and board compensation — have increased consulting management demand in some of the HR benefits subsegments. “Kennedy’s expectation is that, while certain regulatory changes will provide a mainly short-lived boost, the general demographics trend of large labor and skill mismatches — coupled with employee retention problems — will in fact provide HR benefits consultants with new opportunities,” according to Lasse Pitkaeniemi, Project Lead and Associate Director. The new study quantifies the HR consulting market being driven by these and other trends, and delivers crucial data each quarter, with particular attention in Q1 to North American markets, HR Benefits, and a brief look at HR consulting through a financial services industry lens. The exclusive research provides current and forecasted growth through the expert, trusted perspective of the Kennedy analyst team — and their findings deliver the only data and market intelligence consulting providers need to make more informed, strategic decisions around: *Engaging clients *Determining geographic presence *Evaluating service emphasis *Developing talent *Pursuing emerging growth opportunities Pitkaeniemi continues, “Simply put, Kennedy’s market index studies provide the numbers without the noise. Timely selections of HR market index studies are slated for release every quarter this year, and offer an in-depth, uncluttered look at current and forecasted growth in key service areas and HR consulting segments.” In addition, Human Resources Consulting Market Index 2013: Quarter 1 includes Kennedy’s must anticipated rankings and related growth rates of the 20 largest consulting practices (by revenue and market share), including: *Accenture; Aon Hewitt; Booz Allen Hamilton; Buck Consultants; CBIZ; DDI; Deloitte; Ernst & Young; Gallagher Benefits Services; Hay Group; Hymans Robertson; IBM; JLT Employee Benefits Group; KPMG; Lee Hecht Harrison; Mercer; Milliman; Punter Southall; PwC; The Segal Company; and Towers Watson About Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory A Bloomberg BNA Business Founded in 1970, Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory provides accurate and reliable market sizing and forecasts on consulting services world-wide, needs-analysis and vendor profiling for buyers of consulting services, timely and insightful intelligence on the top consulting firms in their respective markets, and operational benchmarks that measure consulting performance.
