agreement, Hewitt will hire approximately 40 Capgemini employees.

By the nature of our business, we already know how outsourcing can benefit an
organization, said Laurie Jadick, vice president and North America HR leader for
Capgemini. What we needed was an experienced provider with a proven delivery
model and capabilities to handle our very specialized HR needs, and we feel that
provider is Hewitt.
