Lincolnshire, IL-based HRO provider Hewitt Associates has notched its first win of the year with an end-to-end contract covering 26,000 employees for Canadian media company Rogers Communications. The deal signaled that Hewitt is still active in the end-to-end, enterprise HRO market.
Under the multi-year contract,—terms of which were not released—Hewitt will provide services including workforce administration, payroll, compensation, and health and welfare administration services to all of 26,000 Rogers Communications’ employees in Canada.
“HR BPO continues to be an integral part of our business, and we’re pleased to demonstrate that commitment as we expand our partnership with Rogers to deliver on their HR needs,” said Russ Fradin, Hewitt chairman and CEO. “We’re excited to grow our business and will continue to pursue opportunities—like Rogers—that will enable us and our clients to be successful.”
The announcement comes after the company last month named Jay C. Rising president of its HRO business. The company in 2005 won more end-to-end enterprise deals than any other provider but then had remained quiet through most of 2006 and this year until its announcement on Rogers.
