Press Release   •   Nov 30, 2016 15:59 GMT

“It’s great to be recognized by leading industry analysts such as Everest Group. This level of recognition further sets us apart from competitors", says CEO Hans-Petter Mellerud.

Everest Group identifies Zalaris as leading player in prestigious rating, assessing service providers in the multi-process HR Outsourcing market (MPHRO). 

In yet another affirmation of its excellence in HR and payroll outsourcing services, Zalaris today announced its positioning as a “Star Performer” on Everest Group’s MPHRO PEAK Matrix™ that assesses all the major providers in the category.

“It’s great to be recognized by leading industry analysts such as Everest Group. This level of recognition further sets us apart from competitors. Businesses have diverse choices in MPHRO, and this is the type of distinction that clearly helps make those decisions easier”, says Zalaris CEO Hans-Petter Mellerud.

Major player
Zalaris received the classification based on Everest Group’s detailed analysis of the company for performance, experience, ability and knowledge (“PEAK”) compared to 19 other MPHRO service providers. The PEAK Matrix classifies service providers into “Leaders”, “Major Contenders”, and “Aspirants”, as well as designates “Star Performers”, based on the service providers’ relative positive year-on-year movement on the matrix.

“Zalaris is a leading HRO provider in the Nordics and is emerging as a major player in the European continent on the back of its strong SAP- and SuccessFactors-based offering”, says Arkadev Basak, Practice Director at Everest Group, and continues:

“Zalaris’ experience in serving a diverse set of buyers, especially in a complex, multi-country construct, with a wide scope of HR functions, places them well for future success.”

Star Performer
In addition to describing Zalaris as both a “Star Performer” and “Major Contender” on its matrix, underscoring the company’s rising success in recent years, Everest Group’s analysis noted Zalaris’ ability to adeptly address cross-border HR processes, including both transaction- and judgment-oriented requirements.

Other advantages referenced range from Zalaris’ strong partnerships with SAP SuccessFactors and the presence of an established SuccessFactors Center of Excellence to the company’s willingness to work on other Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms.

Maximizing the value of Human capital
Hans-Petter Mellerud, the founder of Zalaris in 2000, cited #teamZalaris for developing the company into a leading North European player.
