The world of business has changed. Five-year plans are going in the trash as new technologies transform almost every facet of doing business, new players emerge and organizations seek to re-define and re-shape themselves around their customers.

At the same time the compensation and benefits and HR environments have become increasingly challenging as sectors collide in the race for talent and familiar workforce models become obsolete. Agility, new thinking and flexibility are urgently needed.

That is why at MCR we deliver a service that is shaped entirely around your issues. Our business model is simple and flexible and is about putting our expertise and experience to work for you. MCR is yours.

Our reward and HR expertise comes from senior consultancy and practitioner roles in Aon Hewitt, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Hay Group, ING Direct, Mercer, Morgan Stanley, Pearson, PwC, Sainsbury’s, Shire Plc, Towers Perrin, UnitedHealth Group, the UK Civil Service and Watson Wyatt among others.
Meet the team here.

We deliver through this team of expert associates (and a wider pool) rather than a fixed base of employees. This ensures that our work is delivered in the most skills-relevant and cost-effective way for you. Put simply, it gives you access to far greater resource at high levels of expertise than is the norm for an external consultancy. So you can afford to have us properly understand your organizational DNA and deliver a better service for you. High value, much lower cost.

We very much look forward to working with you in the future.
