Acquisition: Aon Hewitt Purchases OmniPoint’s Workday Services Branch

puzzleGlobal human resources solutions firm Aon Hewitt has announced it will acquire Workday Services from OmniPoint. Workday Services is a leading deployment and integration firm and a partner of SaaS HR solutions leader Workday. Aon Hewitt seeks to expand its Workday capabilities including its HR technology services to large firms and global organizations. The acquisition will distinguish Aon Hewitt as the only company in its industry with end-to-end resources for designing, building, and operating the Workday HR platform.

“As today’s workforce continues to rapidly evolve, Aon Hewitt is shaping the HR industry and staying ahead of current and emerging trends in the market to empower results for our clients,” said Kristi Savacool, chief executive officer, Aon Hewitt. “The SaaS model is gaining traction across our client base and fits well into our existing service-centered HR outsourcing solution. This strategic investment enables us to rapidly scale our knowledge base, expand our full suite of HR solutions and broaden our capabilities to serve our clients’ unique needs and preferences. It is a bold step to strengthen our industry-leading position in HR solutions.”

Aon Hewitt’s current team of Workday-certified employees will be supplemented by over 120 professionals from OmniPoint’s team where the cohesive group will continue to serve the Workday community within Aon Hewitt’s HR BPO business. OmniPoint clients will then have access to broader HR administration services and continued Workday deployment capabilities under Aon Hewitt.

“Aon Hewitt has an excellent track record of quality service with a variety of underlying engines in the HR outsourcing space. Joining forces with OmniPoint enables us to provide that same level of service to clients that choose Workday as their HR platform,” said Jonathan Schembor, president of HR BPO at Aon Hewitt. “Clients are increasingly interested in hosted solutions like Workday because they are flexible, cost effective and require little maintenance on the part of the employer. Rapidly building a team of experienced and credentialed specialists is important in meeting this growing client demand and expanding our presence in the HR outsourcing market.”
