Aon logoGlobal human resources solutions business Aon Hewitt just announced its plan to acquire OmniPoint’s Workday Services company, a leading deployment and integration firm. Workday is a market leader in Software as a Service (SaaS) HR solutions.

The acquisition will allow Aon Hewitt to significantly expand and accelerate its Workday capabilities. This includes equipping HR technology and services to mid-sized and large, global organizations. The new purchase will make Aon Hewitt the industry’s only company that offers an end-to-end resource 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, CEO, 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.”

Once the transaction closes, the OmniPoint team of more than 120 certified professionals will continue to serve the Workday community as an operating unit within Aon Hewitt’s HR business process outsourcing (BPO) business. The unit will provide both deployment and optimization services. Aon Hewitt will offer broader HR administration services to existing OmniPoint clients who are interested in outsourcing as well as Workday deployment capability to new OmniPoint clients.

“We are thrilled to join the Aon Hewitt team,” said Keith Diego, managing partner at Omnipoint. “Our expertise in Workday deployments will be a tremendous complement to Aon Hewitt’s industry-leading HR outsourcing business, and all of our clients will benefit from the added expertise of the combined organization.”

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter.
