Mercer announced today that it has agreed to acquire the business of Workday Services Partner Jeitosa Group International, a leading global HR business consultancy and IT systems integration firm. This will allow Mercer to become a full Workday Services Provider following a recent Workday Advisory Services Partner announcement by the firm. Clients of both firms will have the ability to leverage integrated Workday services from Mercer, encompassing both global strategic HR consulting and technical systems deployment and integration.
With nearly 10 years of Workday experience, Jeitosa Group International has supported more than 100 Workday clients in over 40 countries. Through this acquisition, Mercer will add Workday deployment services to its current Workday advisory services to be able to assist Workday’s current and future customers with a complete end-to-end solution including:
- Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) deployments
- Project management, change readiness and communications support
- Post-deployment assessments and on-going Workday system optimization
- Job family architecture design, including job catalogues and salary compensation
“Welcoming Jeitosa to Mercer is a very exciting development for us. Clients of both firms will benefit from the scope, scale and resources that we can apply to assure successful Workday deployments,” said Kim Seals, Senior Partner at Mercer. “Mercer’s strong HR and business experience will be augmented with Jeitosa’s deep Workday technical expertise and business process implementation focus.”
“The union of the Mercer and Jeitosa businesses will allow us to offer our clients broad HCM knowledge combined with deep systems integration experience,” said Karen Beaman, CEO and Founder of Jeitosa Group International. “Our united team and service offerings will be able to provide a rich and comprehensive solution for Workday HCM customers.”
Going forward, Mercer’s global Workday relationship will be led by Steven Seykora, Partner and Workday Practice Leader in Mercer’s Talent business.
The transaction is subject to the terms and conditions of the definitive agreement between Mercer and Jeitosa Group International and is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2014. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
