Global HR consulting firm Mercer has acquired Jeitosa Group International, a global HR business consultancy and IT systems integration firm based in the United States. Terms of the transaction, which will see roughly 75 professionals join Mercer, have not been disclosed.

Jeitosa Group International was founded in 2004 and since grown to a firm with roughly 75 employees. From its base in San Francisco and global network of employees and associates – which spans across Europe, Latin America, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific – the firm supports clients with HR consulting services. Jeitosa Group in particular has a strong track record in Workday – in recent years the firm has supported more than 100 Workday clients in over 40 countries.

With the addition of Jeitosa, Mercer significantly boosts its Workday offerings, allowing it become a “a full Workday Services Provider”, according to a press release by the firm. Last month the HR consultancy was named an official Workday Advisory Services Partner, and in anticipation of the additional work in the field, the firm decided it would be beneficial to bolster its offering, both in size as in depth. “Clients of both firms will benefit from the scope, scale and resources that we can apply to assure successful Workday deployments,” says Kim Seals, Senior Partner at Mercer.

In addition to the Workday expertise, Mercer and Jeitosa will bundle their propositions to offer complementary services. Jeitosa will be able to leverage Mercer’s strategic HR consulting offerings, while vice versa Mercer will add IT and system integration expertise to its portfolio. “The union of the Mercer and Jeitosa businesses will allow us to offer our clients broad HCM knowledge combined with deep systems integration experience,” comments Karen Beaman, CEO and Founder of Jeitosa. “Our united team and service offerings will be able to provide a rich and comprehensive solution.”
