The article discusses some of the indications that human resources outsourcing (HRO) started to improve again after a relatively flat performance in 2010. Aon Corp. merged with Hewitt Associates to join the global multi-process HRO market. Expenditures on HR consulting increased to 11 percent of the total amount spent on consulting in the first quarter of 2011. Fiona Czerniawska, director of Sourceforconsulting.com, said that much of the growth can be attributed to an increase in the acquisition of recruitment services of one sort or another.
