Wayne, PA-based Kenexa, a provider of talent acquisition and retention solutions, has acquired Germany-based HRC Human Resources Consulting GmbH. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Headquartered in Munich, HRC Human Resources Consulting GmbH (HRC) is a consultant for business-orientated employee surveys in German-speaking countries. The acquisition of HRC will provide additional proprietary content to Kenexa’s current survey and performance management offering. It also expands Kenexa’s geographical reach in mainland Europe, a key growth area.
Kenexa CEO Rudy Karsan noted, “We’re delighted to welcome HRC to the Kenexa family. We expect that their rich history and impressive client base will help accelerate our growth in Europe. Since their inception in 1987, they have been a reliable and competent partner for many German national and multinational companies and organizations, and we look forward to building upon these excellent and long-standing relationships.”
“This is an exciting time for us and our clients”, says René Bergermaier, co-founder and managing partner of HRC. “Kenexa is a leading provider of employee surveys and this move will bring together some of the most experienced psychologists, consultants and researchers in the world to create one of the strongest teams in the industry.”
