December 5, 2016


New York, December 5, 2016- Mercer, a global consulting leader in advancing health, wealth, and careers, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. (NYSE: MMC), announced today that it has acquired the business of Sirota Consulting LLC (Sirota), a global provider of employee engagement solutions that offers the full breadth of organizational assessments, surveys, technology, and analytics. The acquisition builds upon Mercer’s consulting strength and capabilities in talent management and reinforces its commitment to employee engagement.

Sirota, a well-established global brand with more than 40 years of experience, conducts surveys with more than one million employees annually across 130 countries and 80 languages. As specialists in organizational research, Sirota’s advisory capabilities and technologies span all aspects of the employee experience, including engagement, team effectiveness, leadership, and culture. Combined with sophisticated analytics and data mining tools, Sirota’s surveys help clients get real time insight from engagement data. Sirota then uses advanced analytics to help HR identify where leaders, employees, strategy, and culture are misaligned, uncovering hidden factors that drive performance and support positive change.

“Employee engagement is one of the most important human capital issues facing business leaders today, and the acquisition of Sirota strengthens our consulting insights by ensuring our clients have access to leading expertise and data-driven employee survey research programs,” said Ilya Bonic, Mercer President, Career. “With Sirota’s highly regarded intellectual capital, global normative database, tools, and assessments, Mercer has the ability to address current trends in the marketplace that will benefit organizations worldwide.”

“Our mission is to help our clients solve their business problems through employee research,” said John Mallozzi, Chief Executive Officer at Sirota. “Both Mercer and Sirota have the tools, technology, and insights to help organizations execute their strategy, enhance their talent management programs, and unlock the full potential of their workforce.”

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
