PeopleStrong & CogNative Announce Strategic Partnership to drive Talent

PeopleStrong, Asia Pacific’s fastest growing & most comprehensive HR Tech company launches an exclusive Australasian partnership with the leading local talent solutions organisation – CogNative. The association combines PeopleStrong’s next-gen talent management technology with CogNative’s industry leading management consulting services to enable organisations to harness the true people potential of their workforce. The partnership is overseen by CogNative’s parent company Fisher Leadership, with 20 years’ experience in Leadership and Talent.

Commenting on the association, Pip Youngman, Advisory Chair, Australia and New Zealand, PeopleStrong said, “The way we manage and harness Talent & make it our biggest competitive advantage has become the most critical agenda for organisations. But with the currently available technology, the core talent touchpoints such as hiring, learning, performance, career and succession planning remain disconnected. Our mobile-first, AI-based Talent Operating System builds a trifecta of- data, capability, & performance to bring companies insights into an employees’ journey from recruitment to their growth and beyond, breaking data silos & offering prescience for business leaders and employees to take informed decisions..

We’re very excited about the PeopleStrong – CogNative combination. CogNative’s understanding of complex people problems coupled with an agile & collaborative consultative approach uniquely compliments PeopleStrong technology. Together, working as one team, we aim to place our clients on the best path for success as they bridge the gap between people strategy & business outcomes.

With 1.5 million end-users at 350+ enterprises across the world, PeopleStrong has a presence in India, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, and Middle East. The company has recently been named as the “Customers’ choice for Enterprise customers with 1000+ employees” according to Gartner Voice of Customer report 2021.

Managing Director, Michelle Loader states, “At CogNative, we believe the way people want to connect to work is changing. The global pandemic has changed our working world forever, importantly the way organisations need to connect to talent is changing fast and dynamic capability analysis will be the only way to capitalise on emerging conditions.” 

David Jenkinson, Regional Client Relationship Manager for PeopleStrong agrees, ‘We believe that PeopleStrong will disrupt the way Australian and New Zealand organisations engage with talent in the future and we are excited to find innovative solutions for our Australian and New Zealand clients”.
