North Highland Named ALM Vanguard Leader For HR Technology Advisory Services Providers
June 26, 2017
In a 2016 report on HR Technology Advisory Services published by ALM Intelligence, North Highland was recognized for being a “best-in-class” provider of HR Technology Advisory Services. The ALM Vanguard of HR Technology Advisory Services assesses firms in terms of their relative ability to create impact for their clients and maps the providers by their relative position, based on both their services and momentum. The evaluations are done independently for each provider’s overall capabilities; however, they are based on a consistent set of criteria creating comparable data.
Out of 19 providers deemed capable in HR Technology Advisory Services, and North Highland was ranked as one of seven Vanguard Leaders.
- North Highland was commended for its dynamic approach that links “agile, neuroscience, and traditional organizational change management to embed a continuous improvement change process in HR technology transformations.” Other areas of North Highland’s practices were noted, including teaming with our division Sparks Grove, in the excerpts below:
- “What differentiates North Highland is a high-touch consulting approach and local distribution of senior consulting talent across all markets it serves. Considering the depth and breadth of the firm’s expertise, combined with its client service orientation, North Highland is a compelling alternative to the asset-based, yet still high-priced consulting model of many providers.”
- “North Highland also integrates the experience design competencies of its Sparks Grove division into HR technology consulting teams to strengthen its approach to agile implementation. The combination of these capabilities comes together in North Highland’s Employee Experience solution, a consulting service based on a model that maps the intersection of people, process, and technology to the internal and external systems in which an employee functions.”
- North Highland’s approach lends to “creating a clear link between HR service delivery and business strategy. The firm offers the full complement of services across the HR technology services across the HR technology consulting value chain, delivering them through the People and Change practice in collaboration with data and analytics professionals.”
