Human Capital Management Consulting Spurred by Organizational Change

Kennedy's Research Points to Demand for Basic Services That Were Put Off for Years

PETERBOROUGH, NH--(Marketwire - Dec 7, 2011) - Kennedy analysts tracking the Human Capital Management consulting market have found that client demand is rebounding from its lows during the downturn. Kennedy predicts that client spending on Organizational Change consulting will grow to nearly 20% above 2010 levels by 2014.

According to new research from Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory, Human Capital Management Consulting Marketplace, the most successful consulting practices are those that advise not only HR leaders but business leaders and line management on the linkages between human capital and business performance.

"Our analysts have identified four human capital consulting practices that lead the market in this regard," said Dan Daly, Vice President and Managing Director at Kennedy. "In distinguishing these four consultancies, we gave particular weight to a firm's ability to advise on human capital strategy and organizational change." The leading firms are featured in The Kennedy Vanguard of Human Capital Management Consulting Providers, 2011 within the new research.
