Acquisition confirms international ambitions and strengthens digital expertise and advice
ProUnity, the fastest growing HR tech company in Belgium, becomes part of HeadFirst Group. As a leading international HR tech service provider, HeadFirst operates the largest platform for professionals in the Netherlands.
With this move, the companies boost their internationalization and platform strategy. ProUnity retains its name and its management team and gains strength and expertise. HeadFirst Group triples its business in Belgium and enriches its offer with a combination of a marketplace for external talent, an integrated management platform and tailored advice and guidance.
A unique flexible and modular service offering
ProUnity is the only provider in Belgium to offer a unique combination of an open marketplace for freelancers and service companies with a proprietary VMS platform and a customised MSP. It helps organizations to find and manage external employees quickly and efficiently, in a more flexible and modular way. ProUnity serves over forty clients, mainly large companies and major Belgian government organizations.
Over four hundred clients in Europe
HeadFirst Group already opened a Belgian office in 2016. With the addition of ProUnity, it triples its existing business in Belgium, serving its clients internationally even better. The group broadens its HR-tech portfolio, which already consists of its hiring platform Select and collaborations with external VMS partners. On a daily basis an average of 16,000 professionals work for over 400 clients in Europe, realising together an annual turnover of over 1.6 billion euros.
Tech and touch
David Muyldermans, CEO at ProUnity: “After our rapid growth, this new step together with HeadFirst Group comes at the right time for our team, our clients, and our partners. ProUnity already works for large and international companies, and we see their demand increasing. Now we can offer them an even stronger answer. We make each other stronger and will continue to blossom, as people and as organisations, with respect for everyone’s identity.”
Marion van Happen, CEO at HeadFirst Group: “ProUnity is an innovative tech company, a digital native platform organisation, with a sense of personal approach. This has earned them a Deloitte Technology Fast 50 award two years in a row. HeadFirst Group was originally an HR service provider and is now making the switch to a platform organisation. The perfect balance between tech and touch is essential in our services and industry. ProUnity will be an accelerator in this.”
