Lincolnshire, Ill. --Hewitt Associates, a global human resources services firm, announced today it will provide HR business process outsourcing (BPO) services to Capgemini, one of the world's largest management and IT consulting firms. Hewitt will provide services to Capgemini entities in the United States and Canada.
Beginning November 1, under a ten year agreement, Hewitt will provide HR BPO services, including workforce administration, benefits, compensation, recruiting and payroll to Capgemini employees in the United States and Canada. As part of the agreement, Hewitt will hire approximately 40 Capgemini employees.
"By the nature of our business, we already know how outsourcing can benefit an organization," says Laurie Jadick, Vice President and North America HR leader for Capgemini. "What we needed was an experienced provider with a proven delivery model and capabilities to handle our very specialized HR needs, and we feel that provider is Hewitt."
The arrangement marks an extension of Hewitt's collaborative relationship with Capgemini. In May, the firm announced it would provide HR BPO services to TXU Corp. through an agreement with Capgemini Energy LP, a joint venture between TXU and Capgemini. This collaborative arrangement facilitates Capgemini's go-to-market efforts with Hewitt Associates and was a major driver in the selection process for Capgemini Energy LP.
"We're very pleased to be able to expand our relationship with Capgemini," says Bryan Doyle, HR Outsourcing Business Leader, Hewitt Associates. "To be one service provider selected by another is especially significant for us and a true testament to our ability to deliver. We have the HR content knowledge, the experience and the skills to serve Capgemini and its employees."
