PeopleMatter announced it has acquired PeopleClues, a global provider of employment assessments. With the agreement, PeopleClues joins PeopleMatter as the PeopleClues Division, which will be led by Julie Moreland as the senior vice president division, reporting directly to Nate DaPore, PeopleMatter president and CEO.
"The acquisition of PeopleClues underscores our commitment to change the way the hourly workforce works and make it better," DaPore said. "This adds a best-in-class assessment provider to PeopleMatter's growing portfolio of human resource management solutions. Acquiring the company strengthens the alignment of our technologies so we can better serve mutual and future clients."
Founded in 2004, PeopleClues provides behavioral assessments designed to help with hiring, training and promoting the right people for the right positions in thousands of large and small companies in eight countries. In 2012, PeopleClues became a strategic partner with PeopleMatter to integrate its service-industry assessments with the PeopleMatter Platform and provide end users a seamless experience.
As the PeopleClues Division of PeopleMatter, the team will continue to develop employment assessments with expanded capabilities and resources from PeopleMatter. PeopleClues assessments will continue to be used by mutual and standalone clients and partners.
"When we started PeopleClues, we set out to positively impact today's workforce by creating cutting-edge behavioral assessments," Moreland said. "Being recently awarded certification by the British Psychological Society provides additional validation for our assessments with an international 'seal of approval.' Joining PeopleMatter accelerates our vision and gives us access to the technologies, expertise and resources we need to scale and innovate together."
Combining the resources of two SaaS, cloud-based technologies will help employers in the foodservice industry hire the right employees to fit within their respective companies.
This acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions for privately held companies.
