Talentsoft ranked in the Top 50 of Europe’s Most Promising Startups by GP Bullhound


Talentsoft, the European leader in cloud-based talent management and learning software, announces it has been selected in the Top 50 Europe’s Most Promising Startups by GP Bullhound, leading investment banking firm providing advice on mergers & acquisitions, capital raising and private placements in the technology sectors.

This recognition comes at the same time as the French government includes Talentsoft in the prestigious Next40 ranking, a new index listing the 40 tech startups and scale-ups with the potential to become world-class tech leaders. By joining this select group of companies, Talentsoft benefits from dedicated support from the French government on the international scene.

39% growth and more than 110 new customers worldwide

For the first half of 2019, Talentsoft has recorded 39% revenue growth, ahead of its objectives for the year. In addition, more than 110 new organizations have trusted Talentsoft worldwide to manage the development of their talents.

Talentsoft attributes this growth to:

  • Strong demand in the Nordics where dozens of major organizations have chosen the full Talentsoft suite – including Core HR.
  • New references in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) where many major local brands have decided to trust Talentsoft.
  • A strong adoption of Talentsoft in the French public sector, a sector that is currently facing a need to structure its talent management processes.

With 90% of its customers being multinational – including Bourdon, Dorchester Collection, Safran and Unibail Rodamco – Talentsoft proves a deep expertise  in transforming talent management and employee experience at a global level.

This semester, Talentsoft notes a strong interest in its Core HR and Learning solutions:

  • Core HR – Talentsoft Hub: Implemented in nearly 100 organizations worldwide, Talentsoft Hub provides organizations with a consolidated analytical dashboard on basic HR data, employee self-service, position and organization management, digital document management and electronic signature;
  • Learning – Talentsoft Content: launched last March, Talentsoft Content is a “Content as a Service” platform that meets an increasingly strong need for organizations to have a single platform that brings together all relevant training content to develop the skills of their employees.

From SaaS to iPaas: Talentsoft opens its platform to third-party applications

Announced as one of its priorities for 2019, Talentsoft is completing its IpaaS program – Integrated Platform as a Service – with the launch of its Marketplace.

Through its Marketplace, Talentsoft integrates with seamless collaborative experience, the best solutions available on the market, and provides organizations ways to accelerate the HR digital innovation.

Product innovations: work experience and collaboration

In order to allow everyone to fulfill their potential and expand their career options, Talentsoft reinvents the way to involve employees and managers in talent management leveraging with a work experience platform.

To further this product vision, Talentsoft’s R&D teams – 250 employees – use artificial intelligence, machine learning and Microsoft tools – Graph data connect and Teams – to:

  • Better identify everyone’s aspirations and development opportunities: mobility opportunities, training content and training path, new projects, etc.;
  • Integrate HR processes seamlessly in the flow of work; for example, provide feedback on a colleague’s achievements directly from Microsoft Teams and feed Talentsoft talent management platform in one-click.

Organizations are looking for solutions that help them improve the employee experience and build effective teams. We work closely with our customers to co-create innovative solutions  that meet these needs including the integration of Microsoft tools and the launch of our Marketplace. Our results of the first semester confirm our position as the European leader in human capital management and support our ambition to exceed €200 million revenues within 3 years

explains Jean-Stéphane Arcis, CEO and co-founder of Talentsoft.

Talentsoft has launched a massive recruitment plan for 2019 and has already recruited 200 employees to support its growth ambition and strengthen its R&D centre.
