Top HRO Deals of 2005

systematicHR Avatar

I might be a bit behind on the news and it’s entirely possible this has been posted elsewhere. However, HRO Today Magazine posted their top 22 HRO deals of 2005 in their January/February issue. Personally I’m positive this is nowhere near a complete list. I’m betting there were at least another 30 HRO deals even if they were under $100M.

What’s interesting about this list (and as HRO Today points out) is that the names on the list are all very recognizable. Then there’s also the $1.1B DuPont deal that’s remarkable, but then again, $1.1B over 13 years isn’t quite the goliath deal when contract length is considered. Anyway, here’s the list:HRO Today’s Top HRO Deals of 2005

As long as I’m at it, Aberdeen also put out a new HRO study called the “HRO Benchmark Report” in January 2006. It might be of interesting reading for any organizations thinking about entering an HRO contract. (registration required)

    Hey, right off the press…

    The Conference Board just released the following:

    It’s the Journey That Matters: 2005 Strategic HR Transformation Study Tour

    It is one of the best compendium HRT and HRO case studies I have read in a while. It focuses on firms such as Caterpillar, Scotia Bank and Telus. The quality of the work and the objectivity of the Conference Board is also a nice change from the pseudo studies coming-out from many other sources. Check-it out at:

    Thanks Romain for pointing me to that site. Unfortunately I don’t have member ship to the Canada Conference Board, but there’s tons of great free stuff out there otherwise.
