This strategic acquisition marks a significant milestone in our ongoing growth and expansion efforts, reinforcing our position as a market leader in the HR tech sector.

  • Strengthened market position: Combining the technology of the HRD Group with our expertise strengthens our position as a leader in the talent assessment industry.
  • Enhanced product portfolio: The integration of the HRD Group's scientifically validated assessment solutions with Assessio’s robust suite of HR tools will offer our clients even more comprehensive and data-driven solutions for optimising human capital.

Assessio’s CEO Johan Masironi comments on the acquisition:

“Apart from the HRD Group fitting perfectly into our strategy, I am impressed with what the team has achieved in the DACH market. They are highly respected for their expertise and have successfully created processes for large clients with high demands, which customers are very satisfied with. We plan to grow both the existing product they have in the market today, and in parallel, start new sales of the Assessio platform here.”
