WilsonHCG, a global talent solutions leader, today announced that it has merged with CPH, a UK-based RPO provider. Together, the companies will redefine global human capital solutions.
“Since 2012 we’ve been seeking a global partner that met our high expectations of quality and performance. Not only did CPH meet that criteria, but they are a natural culture fit for WilsonHCG. The decision to merge has been solidified during the last 18 months, as we learned more about each other’s values and ambitions,” said John Wilson, Founder and CEO of WilsonHCG and CEO of the combined organization. “Not only is the market dictating a need for global capabilities from a single vendor model, but our clients expressed a need for further on-site and in-market support around the world. Top talent is what powers companies across the globe, and our comprehensive human capital services and consultative recruitment delivery approach will provide an unparalleled talent acquisition solution for these organizations. Together, we will redefine human capital solutions by delivering high-touch, transformative recruitment services to our clients.”
With the growth of global enterprise comes the need for companies to have a global RPO partner with a central point of governance for streamlined multi-country delivery models. The merger accomplishes this and expands WilsonHCG and CPH’s global footprint across North and South America, EMEA and APAC. The combined organization has approximately 300 employees.
“From our first meeting with WilsonHCG, it was obvious that we shared the same view of how a high-quality RPO service should be delivered,” said Jerry Wright, Co-founder and Managing Director of CPH. “As we’ve spent more time together, we have appreciated that there is also a great cultural alignment between our two companies. Our respective client bases and the sectors in which we operate are complementary and with a number of clients asking us to provide them with an RPO solution across more geographies, a merger of our interests is a logical step for us to take. The benefits for our clients, staff and shareholders are obvious, and together we will undoubtedly achieve our joint ambition of creating a world-class, ‘pure play’ RPO business.”
WilsonHCG is known in the industry as a leading RPO firm and is proud to earn prestigious industry accolades for its accomplishments. The company has been ranked among the top RPOs on HRO Today’s “Baker’s Dozen” list for the past three years. Additionally, WilsonHCG has been honored with Talent Board’s prestigious Candidate Experience Award, indicating its dedication to providing a world-class candidate experience both internally and in the delivery of recruitment services for clients. The company is also consistently named as a top employer by multiple publications.
