Talentsoft, drawing more than 600 participants at its annual conference, has revealed its development strategy 2016-2017 which includes steady growth, accelerated international expansion, expanded R&D teams, new partnerships and product innovation.
Talentsoft, the European leader in cloud-based talent management, has unveiled its international expansion plans and accelerated development strategy during its annual user conference. Nine months after closing a 25 million euro investment round led by Goldman Sachs, Talentsoft is picking up considerable momentum, strengthening its place as the European leader in talent management and setting new goals for the coming months. The company’s development has also been fuelled by pivotal partnerships with Microsoft and Le Lab RH, enabling further HR innovation.
Talentsoft outlined its aspirations for the coming months in the presence of more than 600 participants attending its annual user conference, dedicated to the “employee experience.” Talentsoft has promised greater presence across the globe for its clients and this year nearly 50 of the largest European companies joined the Talentsoft community this year. These include the likes of ELTEL Networks Infranet AB, Eiffage Energie, ETAM, Fives, FlixBus GmbH, Groupe France Télévisions, Geoxia, ISS Schweiz AG and Swiss AviationTraining Ltd. Talentsoft has demonstrated a steady, yearly growth of over 30%, with an estimated turnover of more than 40 million euros in 2016.
Talentsoft’s Customer Success team has also increased in size to help the international deployment of its clients. The team guarantees 24/7 functional and technical support. Bunker Holding, Clarins, Crédit Agricole, DB Schenker, Elior, Geodis, Max Mara and VINCI have all placed their trust in Talentsoft for their international deployments.
“Nine months after Goldman Sachs’s investment in Talentsoft, we are delighted to announce our development plan, in line with our priorities. We’ve recruited 100 new employees since the beginning of the year and by the end of 2016, we will reach the 500 employee benchmark. With 150 developers, Talentsoft boasts the largest R&D team dedicated to HR cloud in Europe,” remarked Jean-Stéphane Arcis, CEO of Talentsoft.
“We are proud to announce that by the end of the year, we will stand at 1,000 clients and 6 million users strong. Talentsoft’s teams will be present in 15 countries around the globe (Europe, Asia, North Africa, and the Americas) to provide its clients with more advanced support. At the same time, the Talentsoft community continues to grow in France and abroad. Large European groups such as DB Schenker and Bunker Holding have recently joined our community, securing our position as the European leader in talent management,” added Jean-Stéphane Arcis.
