It's true that the number of US companies with 3,000 to 15,000 employees with multi-process HR outsourcing deals is still small, and activity at that level remains relatively uncharted, However, a confluence of factors could drive the mid-market HRO business to new heights during 2008, outpacing activity at the troubled large-market level.
