EY and IBM (NYSE: IBM) announced an alliance expansion through a new initiative to help businesses around the world address some of the most pressing workforce challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, including employee recruiting, retention, upskilling, and the need for transforming HR systems technology at speed and scale.

With the goal of helping organizations navigate this new talent landscape through digital innovation and greater resilience, EY and IBM established a new Talent Center of Excellence (COE). The COE will create data-driven AI and hybrid cloud solutions that provide broad talent, HR, mobility, and payroll transformation services.

Bringing together the EY Organization & Workforce, Mobility and HR Transformation business solutions with IBM Talent Transformation business and hybrid cloud and AI capabilities, it is the newest expansion of the EY-IBM Alliance and it is the second COE established in the past year.

EY has been investing in the organization’s own Talent function and by utilizing IBM automation and intelligence technology, EY is transforming Talent from within to develop a leading class acquisition strategy, helping in delivering a simplified user experience and enabling the ability to better match available skills and talent to jobs.

This new COE follows the launch of the EY-IBM Center of Excellence for Financial Services, which has supported nearly 30 financial institutions with solutions including mainframe modernization, application modernization, and cloud security.


“The combination of EY and IBM broad talent consulting and technology solutions can help clients transform their workforce by addressing some of the most significant talent challenges facing the market today. Through this alliance expansion, EY and IBM are better equipped to help deliver value to clients by putting humans at the center of the experience and helping them overcome the urgent need to attract, retain and upskill their workforce while transforming their HR function.”

The EY-IBM Alliance will provide consulting and technology solutions that infuse AI and automation into the talent process to help clients simplify and streamline the experience. The collaboration with EY is yet another example of IBM’s open ecosystem model designed to drive market-share for partners, bring value to clients, and will further differentiate EY and IBM across the talent industry, resetting the standard for talent solutions globally.”
