With Mercer and HRIS joining forces, they will be able to help clients to optimise HR management and workforce performance to have the right people and skills at the right place, time and cost, while keeping talent focused, motivated and engaged.

It has a large group of local companies operating in various industry sectors. With our strong global footprint and experience, coupled with an on the ground local leader, Mercer and HRIS can bring in the required knowledge”.
