Philadelphia – April 24, 2018 – SharedXpertise, publisher of HRO Today magazine and producers of the HRO Today Forums, has announced the launch of its HRO Today Advisory Services.

This new boutique advisory practice assists practitioners with achieving stronger business outcomes. With comprehensive industry research as its foundation, HRO Today Advisory Services has developed decision tools and services around provider partner selection, benchmarking, and workforce strategy, with an emphasis on simplicity and speed.

“I’m often asked by human resources practitioners to advise them during their process for sourcing and selecting a new service provider,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of SharedXpertise Media. “With our workforce expertise, innovative design thinking, and access to more than a decade of HRO Today Baker’s Dozen research and data, we can deliver value to human resources practitioners through a collaborative approach that’s exclusive to our industry.”

Based on HRO Today survey data, over 69 percent of responding practitioners have used the HRO Today Baker’s Dozen ratings to support their sourcing events and more than 80 percent of these buyers’ corresponding decisions were influenced by the ratings. HRO Today Advisory Services can go deeper into this research to advise practitioners on their partnership decisions.

“In today’s digital and highly dynamic environment, it is essential to accelerate decision-making while minimizing risk,” said Candy Hipple, managing director, HRO Today Advisory Services. “Our research shows that when selecting a service provider, a knowledgeable buyer and a streamlined sourcing process will result in a more enriched and effective partnership outcome overall.”
