It’s destination India for Hay Group
The global organisational and human resources consulting firm, Hay Group, has decided to set up its first global knowledge centre in India, to support its offices worldwide. According to Hay Group’s managing director ( Asia region) Reiji Ohtaki this research centre will support the consulting activities of offices around the world.
Pointing out that the Chinese team, which was engaged in changing the way operations were being undertaken in the Chinese airline sector, had to research for global benchmarks on their own, he said, “Once our Gurgaon knowledge centre is up and running, these benchmarks will be streamlined by the centre.”
The group, which recently undertook the Indian CEOs versus global CEOs study for the Prime Minister’s office, currently works for over 7,000 organisations in 39 countries around the world. Over 470 of the Fortune 1,000 companies in the US are serviced by the group.
It also services a range of verticals including chemicals, consumer products, financial services, government, healthcare, manufacturing, pharamaceuticals, retail and utilities.
The group also advises clients on organisational effectiveness, role clarity and work design, managerial and executive assessment, selection and development, executive remuneration and corporate governance and employee and customer attitude research. It also has plans to increase its team size to five times the present number in the next three years.
The setting up of the knowledge centre is in line with the group’s strategy of repositioning itself from a purely human resources consulting firm to an organisation and a human resources consultant. The new branding now puts the emphasis on “strategy-related consulting.
