Philadelphia, Pa. -- Right Management Consultants has successfully concluded the assimilation of Empower and Manchester Associates, creating one of the largest organizational consultancies in the world, a $130 million organization with more than 700 consultants in 22 countries.
Right began its assimilation process five months ago, when it was acquired by Manpower. As part of the acquisition, Manpower’s organizational consulting division, Empower, and its 300-plus consultants, was merged into Right’s organizational consulting practice. At the same time, Right also began assimilating consultants from Manchester, which Right acquired in January.
"We are delighted to announce that we have succeeded in bringing together some of the best organizational consultants in the world and merging them under the Right banner," says Right Chief Executive Officer Richard Pinola. “This was no small feat, but as a leading organizational consulting firm, this gave us an excellent opportunity to be our own lab for a successful, global merger.”
With the addition of Empower, Right for the first time has offices in the People’s Republic of China. In addition, Empower’s service offerings in strategic talent management, talent value analysis, and employee engagement and communications have bolstered Right’s organizational consulting practice.
Chris Pierce-Cooke, Executive Vice President of Organizational Consulting for Right, said the addition of Empower strengthened Right in ways that extend well beyond the expanded services it can now offer clients.
“Right’s professional expertise in organizational consulting has clearly been enhanced,” says Pierce-Cook. “Our new colleagues from Empower and Manchester bring some of the deepest intellectual capital available in organizational consulting to our organization.”
