Talent consultancy Sheffield Haworth has acquired change management and business transformation consultancy S&H Consulting. The move comes at a time of rapid growth for Sheffield Haworth’s Consulting Solutions team.

Unemployment is low, while an ageing population and increasing restrictions to cross-border labour movement mean that demand for talent is high. Amid the on-going war for talent among UK firms, demand has boomed for consulting firms which can help clients plot HR strategies to navigate this environment.

Founded over 25 years ago, Sheffield Haworth is a talent consulting firm that delivers talent and up-to-date industry information across the globe in the financial services, business and professional services and digital and technology sectors. The firm supports clients with executive search and consulting solutions and talent advisory, combining a lengthy track record with an on-going commitment to diligence, integrity and innovation. The business has 10 offices throughout the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific regions.
