ORC Worldwide "roots were planted more than 75 years ago, when John D. Rockefeller, Jr., established a staff of industrial relations specialists to help advise him on the management of his various companies. This staff was soon organized into Industrial Relations Counselors (IRC), a nonprofit, applied-research organization, dedicated to serving clients by advancing the art, knowledge, and practice of organizational and human relationships at work. In 1953, ORC was spun out of IRC as a for-profit consulting firm. Since then, ORC has served to assist clients, primarily Fortune 500 firms, with specialized knowledge and advice about human resources management." [1]
