"The trend toward global business services is driving overall demand for HR consulting and thus elevating HR to the strategic role it has pursued for so long. Now, more than ever, the C-suite is focused on developing a people agenda that creates competitive advantage in a constantly evolving global marketplace. Additionally, buyers are looking for firms that can also operationalize HR strategies. Consulting providers that combine strategy with HR function expertise and implementation capabilities have a competitive advantage."
