A growing trend among leading corporations is to ask their purchasing department to get engaged in the procurement of HR and employee benefits services. This has traditionally been an area where companies have hired outside consultants and insurance brokers to negotiate the terms of their contracts and respective fees. In addition, HR often served as the point of contact for these consultants and brokers and was responsible for hiring them to assist in this process.
