TalentPulse achieves this by consolidating talent data, speeding up talent management cycles, and improving talent decisions. Adds Sharma Lachu, CEO & Founder Accendo, “We are very excited with our partnership with Fortuna. As innovators in the talent space, we seek like-minded organizations that share our vision of helping HR drive their digital HR agenda, be more data-driven, and help organizations achieve agility and resilience. Fortuna International, with their know-how and expertise in the talent assessment space as well as overall HR consulting experience, is a most suitable partner for us to expand into New Zealand and explore opportunities in this market.”
With the constant disruptions becoming the new norm for businesses nowadays, Fortuna International shall now also carry TalentPulse locally to address the need for a consolidated assessment marketplace as well as the constant push to increase talent decision quality.
