CHINA STAFF magazine names Hewitt 'HR Consulting Firm of the Year'

SHANGHAI, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Hewitt Associates, a global human resources consulting and outsourcing company, has been named Consulting Firm of the Year 2009 by CHINA STAFF magazine.

The award was accepted by Jenny Li, managing director of Hewitt Associates Greater China, at a ceremony in Beijing on December 3rd.

Commenting on the award, Jenny said: "We are very proud to be recognized by this award. It has been a difficult year for many businesses in China who faced new challenges and unexpected surprises. As a result, we have had to provide new and innovative solutions, to meet our clients' changing needs. So this award tells us we are 'on the right track' and given everything the market has gone through this year, feels very special indeed.

"The award is a real confirmation that we are succeeding with our efforts to be more client focused and bring measurable results and meaningful impact on their businesses. It also provides great encouragement to our associates and confirmation that their efforts do make a real difference. We are proud of this achievement which helps bring us one step closer to realizing our ongoing mission of Making China a Better Place to Work."

First held in 1998 in Hong Kong, the China STAFF HR Awards expanded to Mainland China in 2003 in acknowledgement of CCH's business development in China as well as the country's rapid economic development. The judging process was a stringent one in which nominees for the awards must first produce a variety of industry information for assessment. Afterwards, an independent and anonymous review of the information is conducted, coupled with a visit from an independent evaluator to ask supplementary questions, ensuring an accurate and objective review process.

Previously Hewitt has been acknowledged by CHINA STAFF as the HR Consulting Firm of the Year for five consecutive years (from 2004 to 2008), the China Compensation and Benefits Firm of the Year in 2004, the China Consulting Firm of the Year for Change Management in 2005, the Consulting Firm of the Year for Performance and Reward Management in 2006, and most recently Business Process Outsourcing Firm of the Year in 2008.

Hewitt was also a finalist in the HR Outsourcing Firm of the Year 2009 award category.
