'FORBES' NAMES PHILADELPHIA CONSULTING FIRM RIGHT ASSOCIATES AMONG WORLD'S BEST SMALL COMPANIES

 PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- In the Nov. 8 issue of Forbes magazine's annual tally of "The Best Small Companies in the World," Right Associates, a human resources and management consulting firm, was the only Philadelphia-based company to be listed.
 Right Associates, which trades under the name of Right Management Consultants, Inc. (NASDAQ: RMCI), creates, markets and delivers career management and consulting services to assist employers with restructuring issues and to help separated employees develop strategies to achieve their career objectives. Through other human resources consulting services, Right Associates also helps client companies and their employees to become more effective and productive in an increasingly competitive, global economy.
 The publication commented on the importance of small companies stating that these dynamic companies play a "vital role" in today's society because of their ability to "create virtually all of the country's net new jobs."
 "In Right Associates' case it is not just the existence of this company and the internal jobs that have been created by our inception that is important," stated Richard J. Pinola, president and CEO. "If you think about what we do, it is the very nature of our work that makes a difference. We are impacting individuals and organizations in ways that will enhance their chances for success and solidify their ability to compete in today's market."
 Since its incorporation in 1980, Right Associates has expanded to more than 105 offices throughout the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Europe, and has helped more than 1 million people to make successful career transitions. "We are in the business of helping to manage the human side of organizational change. We are `people helping people,'" stated Frank Louchheim, chairman and founder of the company. "That philosophy has remained part of our culture since Right Associates began as a one-office operation in Center City, more than a decade ago."
 To be selected as an "up and comer" by Forbes, Right Associates was screened along with 5,000 other companies whose latest 12-month sales were between $5 million and $350 million and whose five-year return on equity had to be at least 10 percent before being considered one of "the best." The company's five-year average ROE was listed by Forbes at 16.8 percent and sales were listed at $60 million.
 Of Right Associates' inclusion in this listing, Pinola said, "It's very appropriate. Our goal is not to be the biggest firm specializing in human resources consulting -- but it is to be the best."
