Mercer went for the metrics with its acquisition of Comptryx.

On Sept. 30, the global consultancy announced it had acquired Comptryx, a workforce metrics company that specializes in the technology sector, for an undisclosed amount.

Comptryx was founded in 2010 by three human resources and compensation consultants: John Cunnell, Joe Duggan and Roger Sturtevant and has headquarters in the United States and United Kingdom. Its software allows companies to benchmark their pay and workforce metrics against competitors with three components: a global salary survey, workforce metrics analysis system and a labor cost modeling tool.

“The technology industry is a growing market for Mercer,” said Ilya Bonic, a Mercer senior partner and president of the consultancy’s talent business, in a news release. “The acquisition of Comptryx strengthens our consulting insights by ensuring the most robust products are utilized to achieve informed, data-driven talent management programs.”

Duggan added in the release: “Our mission is to elevate HR’s role by providing powerful organizational information that executive management needs to run the business. … We believe the experience and resources resulting from the combination of our businesses will be of great value to our clients.”

James Tehrani is the director of content strategy at FlexJobs.
