PwC US has been named a Leader in the IDC vendor assessment of business consulting related to talent related activities, and in business consulting related to compliance related activities, according to the analyst firm’s recently published reports.

IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model aims to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of suppliers in a given market through a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market.

IDC MarketScape also provides a clear framework in which the product and service offerings, capabilities and strategies, and current and future market success factors of vendors can be cross-checked. The framework also provides buyers with a 360-degree assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current and prospective vendors.

“Worldwide, PwC is seen as among the most capable at helping clients leverage talent. It is also seen as among the most capable at challenging corporate culture and delivering innovation in talent related projects,” IDC said.

The study looks into the capability and business strategy of the leading talent related business consulting firms. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive framework and set of parameters expected to be most conducive to success in providing talent related business consulting services during the short and the long term.

“As we recently reported in PwC’s 14th Annual Global CEO Survey, managing talent is a top priority for CEOs – 66 percent of global CEOs and 56 percent of U.S.,” Ed Boswell, U.S. Advisory People and Change practice leader at PwC, commented on IDC’s recognition of PwC’s talent management.

“CEOs say a lack of the right skills is their biggest threat to growth. PwC’s leadership ranking in IDC’s study reflects our recognized commitment to helping our clients improve business performance through people performance and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage,” Boswell added.

On the other hand, the report noted that “PwC is seen as among the most capable at helping clients reduce costs on compliance related projects and at integrating its project team with the client’s.”

PwC is also noted by IDC as being “…among the most capable at challenging corporate culture and delivering innovation in the project.”

“In today’s business environment, new regulatory requirements and demands are adding cost and complexity to business models and companies need to carefully consider how to best comply with a myriad of laws and regulations,” said Miles Everson, PwC principal and global and U.S. risk and compliance practice leader.

“Our placement in the Leader category by IDC in this study reflects our dedication to helping our clients become risk resilient and improve overall operational efficiency,” Everson added.

PwC has also recently been named a key player in business consulting related to compliance related activities by IDC in “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Compliance Related Business Consulting 2011 Vendor Analysis” and as an IDC MarketScape Major Player worldwide in public sector business consulting in the “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Public Sector Business Consulting 2011 Vendor Analysis.”
