SIAO-Accendo Sign Strategic Partnership

Accendo And SIAO, Nigeria Sign Strategic Partnership To Meet Growing Demand In Africa For Strategic Talent Management Solutions.

Nigeria’s leading Professional Services and HR Consulting Firm teams up with Accendo’s cloud-based talent management software to help African companies take data-based talent decisions.

Press Release: Kuala Lumpur & Lagos, Nigeria, September 17 2020: Accendo Technologies, a leading provider of cloud-based strategic talent management solutions, announced the signing of a partnership agreement with SIAO, a leading Professional Services and HR Consulting Firm based in Lagos, Nigeria. The two companies have come together to offer end-to-end talent solutions to customers, combining the best of talent consulting and talent management software.


With a professional staff strength of over 100 personnel, SIAO prides themselves as being Nigeria’s largest indigenous professional services firm. Having serviced a diverse set of clients across Engineering, Oil and Gas, Finance, Public Sector, Telecommunications and Manufacturing sectors, SIAO’s human resource consulting arm was facing repeated requests from its customers for advanced talent management solutions that would help them align talent with business strategy in an increasingly agile and volatile business environment.

The partnership with Accendo is designed to add a best-of-breed talent management solution that will enable SIAO’s customers to leverage technology, people, science and behaviour, creating the path for a data-driven and agile people strategy that stays in constant alignment with business needs.

Over the last few years, Accendo has been offering innovative solutions to address current and future talent management challenges. Existing talent solution applications, while providing core capabilities to digitize core processes, have limitations in their ability to help the growing need for improving talent utilization. With Accendo’s data-driven talent management solutions, SIAO’s customers will benefit from a best-of-breed technology platform, along with SIAO’s in-depth consulting expertise in talent strategy and talent management.

Speaking about the partnership, Sharma Lachu CEO & Founder, Accendo Technologies, said: “We are thrilled about our new partnership with SIAO Nigeria. We are already gaining massive traction in our home country Malaysia, and this partnership with SIAO highlights the fact that organizations across the globe need a solution like TalentPulse to address their growing challenges. We look forward to working alongside the SIAO team to create value for our African customers”
