Mercer Acquires Authoritative Mining Salary Surveys And Consulting Services Of Hall Consulting Limited

Mercer, a global consulting leader in talent, health, retirement and investments, announced today that it has acquired the salary survey database, client relationships and consulting services of Hall Consulting Limited (HCL), a leading provider of expertise and information services for the mining sector in North America. HCL’s Coopers Mining Industry Salary Surveys have been the hallmark of salary survey initiatives dedicated to mining industry for many years. As a result of the acquisition, Mercer strengthens its suite of survey data and positions itself as a pre-eminent authority providing research, analysis and consulting services to the energy and mining industry.

“Mercer continues to add to our expertise in specific industries, and we believe that our experience in talent management can be of particular value to the mining and extractive industries as the sector grows and competition for talent heightens,” said Orlando Ashford, President, Talent, at Mercer.

Mercer’s Talent business, which includes compensation and benefits and human resources policy benchmarking data, software, tools and consulting services, provides HR information to many of the world’s largest organizations. The addition of survey data specific to the mining industry – covering some 150 positions collected from more than 200 mining operations in the US and Canada – expands Mercer’s overall service offerings and supports a growing sector.

“Programs designed to enhance attraction and retention of scarce talent must be based upon good data,” said Brian Brown, Mercer Senior Partner, Western Canada. “Building on Hall’s resources, Mercer has the breadth of expertise to advise clients in the mining industry on talent management and rewards programs essential to maintaining a competitive advantage.”

There are more than 2,000 publicly traded mining companies in Canada and the US. This provides an excellent opportunity for Mercer to grow it is talent information and consulting services in the industry.

“Mercer is recognized as a leader of information solutions around the world,” said Lou Vujanich, the founder of Hall Consulting. “Their HR knowledge, resources and global capabilities combined with comprehensive data on compensation practices for North American mining operations will greatly benefit the industry.”
