Deloitte Consulting has appointed Daniel Hibbert as Director in its Human Capital consultancy practice. Hibbert joins from Mercer, and prior to that served Big Four rivals PwC and EY.
Daniel Hibbert has over 20 years’ experience in supporting organisations on workforce reward issues, in both the private and the public sectors. He specialises in pay structure design, performance related pay, job evaluation and helping companies link reward with HR and business strategies. After starting his career in accountancy, Hibbert joined EY in 1986, where he spent roughly eight years, in his last role as a Manager. In 1994 he moved to PwC, where Hibbert contributed to dozens of business and HR engagements across a wide range of industries.
After nearly 20 years with PwC, Hibbert embarked on a new challenge early 2012, and joined Mercer, one of the globe’s largest consultancies specialised in human resources and talent management services. Hibbert spent 3+ years with the firm, choosing to move to Deloitte per the 1st of June. At Deloitte he will serve as Director in the firm’s Reward practice, which is part of the Human Capital business unit.
Hibbert on his new role: “We are seeing a real demand from clients to bring their reward systems more closely into line with the management of talent and with their business strategy. Those who can get this right will have a competitive advantage in today’s world of work.” Deloitte’s most recent Human Capital Trends survey reveals that a lack of employee engagement is regarded as the number 1 challenge for HR directors. According to Andrew Mewis, leader of Deloitte’s Reward practice in the UK, rewards can play a major role in finding the right recipe for engagement, stating: “Rewards are a fundamental way of engaging with employees and boosting productivity.”
Deloitte’s rewards and benefits business team in the UK currently consists of over 110 people. “I’m excited to be part of the team. We are well placed to help our clients to ensure that their reward systems properly support the needs of their businesses,” adds Hibbert.
Deloitte’s Human Capital business unit supports clients with a range of HR services, including talent management, HR transformation, rewards & benefits, change management, leadership, actuarial services, learning & development and organisation design. The European Human Capital organisation is led by Ardie van Berkel, a partner in the firm’s Dutch practice.
