United States, New York

In its annual survey of almost 9,000 practicing consultants in North America, the website Vault has ranked Mercer number one in Human Resources Consulting for the 15th consecutive year. Mercer is one of a select few organizations with such a long track record of leadership in its category, which places it among the gold standard of professional services firms.

“The recognition by our peers and competitors is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our 22,000 colleagues around the world, who are committed to helping our clients advance the health, wealth, and careers of their most vital asset – their people,” said Julio Portalatin, President and CEO of Mercer. “We remain vigilant about improving and enhancing the service we offer. New products, services and our recent launch of Mercer Digital are just a few examples of how we constantly evolve to meet the needs of a changing workforce – now and in the future.”

Vault, a provider of career planning research for professionals and recent graduates, sources all of its rankings and reviews from surveys of verified practitioners. For the Consulting Practice Area Rankings, Vault asked consultants to vote for up to three firms (excluding their own) considered the best in each business focus area, including HR consulting, management consulting, economic consulting, and energy consulting.
