Deloitte to Acquire HR Technology Consultancy

New York— March 29

Deloitte has signed an agreement to acquire all of the assets of Aggressor LLC, a business and IT consulting firm that focuses on providing deployment services for Workday services.

The transaction is expected to close in April.

Workday is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) enterprise service for human resources, payroll and financial management.

The acquisition further strengthens Deloitte’s market position as a HR technology and transformation consulting practice based on breadth and depth of capabilities, as rated by Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory.

Global companies are using Workday’s human capital management, talent management, payroll, financial management and spend management service to help acquire, measure, develop, deploy and retain their global workforce, as well as help improve financial and operational efficiencies and gain insights into their organizations.

Deloitte’s Human Capital Trends 2012 report concludes that transformative technologies, such as cloud, are driving many companies to focus on advancing their HR capabilities.

Based in Pleasanton, Calif., Aggressor complements Deloitte with top talent that can help Deloitte grow and maintain its leadership position in the HR transformation market. Approximately 100 Aggressor employees are expected to join Deloitte’s human capital consulting practice as part of its HR transformation service line.
