interRel Has First Consultant Resignation Since 2012

Mar 19, 2014

Arlington, Texas, March 20, 2014 - interRel Consulting is celebrating an unusual event for any company larger than $10 million in revenue: 18 consecutive months of 100% employee retention. This is a monumental achievement in the technology services industry, where attrition is high and consultants are aggressively sought after by competitors.

According to insidebiz.com, employers across the globe are facing an estimated 161.7 million resignations this year, but interRel has not been in the sameMarta Predicament. The company's retention record took hold in 2012 as the economy improved and the company focused on project delivery. No one knew it would begin an 18-month streak, setting what could be the longest known record for any consulting firm in the industry.

Back in September 2012, CEO of interRel, Edward Roske, promised everyone in the company a special t-shirt if they made it to a year with no resignations. When the one year anniversary arrived in September 2013, each employee received a special package with a T-shirt that read "My company went a year with 0 resignations and all I got was this lousy t-shirt (and a $5,000 raise)." Employees started posting pictures on various social media sites displaying their shock and gratitude for such a generous and creative gift.

"Hitting the milestone of one-year is something I couldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams or best case scenario," Roske told employees in a , recorded in September 2013, to affirm that the t-shirts were not a joke. Roske continued, "12 months without anyone in the entire company quitting? The least we could do was give everyone a shirt. We felt that it should be accompanied by a $5,000 raise for every single employee at the company. The loyalty and commitment of our employees is incredible."

interRel wasn't just retaining its employees in the last year, it has also been growing. Since 2012, interRel added 16 new employees across the country of which two are former interRel employees who explored other options but decided interRel was their true fit.

Employees join interRel for the opportunity; stay for the unique culture and to partake in interRel's mission to heavily invest in consultants' career longevity. interRel offers extensive training and mentorship from renowned Oracle Hyperion experts in senior leadership while also encouraging employees to have fun and be creative. From gaming nights of Werewolf to African drum circles, everyone is continually challenged, and rewarded, to think differently. Competitive salaries and benefits are a given.

WellPoint and interRel Win Oracle Excellence Award for Business Analytics

Sep 24, 2013

Oracle OpenWorld, San Francisco, September 24, 2013 - interRel Consulting and WellPoint were awarded the 2013 Oracle Excellence Award for Innovation in Business Analytics (EPM, Exalytics, & Business Intelligence) at the 2013 Oracle OpenWorld conference.  The award was presented to WellPoint's Director of EPM, Jonathon Eastman, and a team of interRel consultants including Jason Novikoff and Ross Schwartzberg.  Matt Bradley, Senior Vice President of EPM Development presented the award at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Innovation Award ImageThe Oracle Excellence Awards recognizes customers and implementation partners for outstanding, cutting-edge solutions using Oracle Fusion Middleware.  WellPoint and interRel were chosen for WellPoint's implementation of Oracle Essbase 11.1.2.3 on Exalytics.  WellPoint, the largest health insurer in America, is the first company in the world to go live on the 11.1.2.3 Exalytics platform.  The WellPoint business case was selected among 260 submissions for uniqueness of its business case, business benefits, level of impact relative to the size of the organization, complexity and magnitude of implementation, and the originality of architecture.

WellPoint's Exalytics Business Case

WellPoint implemented Exalytics in response to the Affordable Care Act (2010), which imposed many new challenges and opportunities to WellPoint's Financial Accounting, Reporting/BI and Budgeting systems. WellPoint's two primary challenges included integration of multiple acquisitions of billion dollar companies and regulation requirements of Quality Improvement reporting, Risk Corridors, Health Insurance Exchanges and more.  WellPoint's defined business objectives were: 1) compliance with ACA's regulatory requirements using Oracle EPM/BI; 2) integration of acquisitions into the Oracle EPM/BI system; and 3) cost minimization of the implementation.

WellPoint embraced Oracle's new engineered system, Exalytics, by rolling out three Exalytics servers networked with 10G Ethernet to replace the 13 IBM boxes and integrated their Exalytics environment with PeopleSoft Financials 9.0. The implementation reduced the total cost of ownership by 50% with a simpler environment that is faster and easier to maintain.   Performance increased by up to 4-fold and Wellpoint's savings is estimated to be hundreds of thousands of dollars.

interRel CEO and Oracle ACE Director Edward Roske said at the awards ceremony, "We are honored to win this prestigious award alongside WellPoint, a long-standing, distinguished client whose employees consistently strive to make the company an efficient Oracle EPM/BI machine.  WellPoint isn't looking for a senior Hyperion consultant to take direction; they are looking for expertise in defining a long-term strategic solution. It has been an honor to work with WellPoint throughout the years and we look forward to a strong relationship in the future."

"When my partner and I started our company in 1997, we never could have imagined the growth we would experience in our teen years of business," said Edward Roske, CEO, interRel Consulting. "Landing on the Inc. 5000 list in 2008 was an incredible accomplishment and to be named for six consecutive years is simply remarkable. To maintain our success for the past six years during these tough economic times is a testimony to our employees' and client's creativity, resilience, and tenacity. We have been fortunate to be involved in great projects that have led to incredible word of mouth references. All of this, and more, is a recipe for what will hopefully allow us to join this exclusive list again in 2014."
