LOS ANGELES, May 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Employers Group (www.employersgroup.com), a 114 year old human resources consultancy, announces today the launch of its 2011 Project Consulting Survey.

The goal of the five-minute survey is to provide its participants with information to help analyze and drive improvements in the utilization of interim staff on internal projects. Using consultants can be a key lever or an expensive cost, depending on the execution. Companies that use consultants effectively and affordably can mean the difference between operational success and failure.

"We have seen the use of project-based consultants for internal initiatives increase in a post-economic meltdown marketplace, after the massive layoffs of traditional staff," said Trevor K. Lattin, Vice President at Employers Group.  "Like any co-sourced or outsourced use of talent, the use of project-based consultants can help companies get over the challenges of recruiting and hiring key talent or to help in gap situations like a key merger or acquisition.  We look forward to analyzing the national data results from this survey and providing the survey participants with the results in the 2011 Project Consulting Survey to be published later this quarter."

CEOs, CFOs and Controllers at leading companies will find the survey results of particular value.  Employers Group invites companies to participate in the complimentary survey by clicking on this link:
