Seals to Lead Mercer Unit

April 7, 2008 ( - Kim Seals has been appointed global leader for compensation management co-sourcing at Mercer.

According to a press release, Seals brings significant experience to this global position, having served previously as the Americas leader for Mercer’s compensation management co-sourcing business. In this role, she coordinated all resources assigned to the delivery of co-sourcing and ensured client satisfaction with the services provided. Prior to this, Seals was a consultant in Mercer’s HR effectiveness business.

Prior to joining Mercer in 2001, Seals was a consultant in PricewaterhouseCoopers’ global HR solutions practice. She also held the position of compensation and benefits manager for both the Woman’s Hospital Foundation and Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Corporation before beginning her career in consulting.

She will now head a group that assists organizations with creating a more robust and efficient compensation function – within a single country, regionally or globally – by partnering with the firm’s consultants to augment internal resources rather than outsourcing this activity. It is part of Mercer’s human capital and information product solutions businesses.

“The solution of compensation management co-sourcing continues to be growing as more and more organizations enhance internal HR resources through external partnerships rather than fully shifting compensation administration to an outside vendor,” said Charlie Scott, global leader for Mercer’s human capital consulting business. “Kim will continue to ensure that our co-sourcing business helps clients get the most from internal resources and contribute to their organizations’ overall success without completely outsourcing the compensation function.”
