Is your HR function keeping pace with change? 

Our world of work keeps changing at lightning speed. Accelerated digitization, skills-based organizations and agile working are just part of our new reality. These major transformations require a strong HR function that takes an active role and ensures changes are people-centered and sustainable. Yet, in reality, up to 60% of HR capacity is still caught up in administration. The current HR service portfolio doesn’t support the future of work. Employee experience is fractured at best, and HR isn’t perceived as an essential function in most organizations

Mercer has developed the HR Accelerator to help jump-start your HR function and improve its efficiency up to 25% while reducing transactional volume and freeing up HR staff to support and guide your organization in the new shape of work. HR Accelerator focuses on these pivotal areas:

  • Designing relevant future HR services
  • Defining target interactions and service delivery models
  • Shaping future HR roles
  • Enhancing the employee experience through digital advancements 

Complete this strategic exercise with a combination of collaborative, user-centered workshops, expert consulting services and our agile digital platform.
