We work in the crucial intersection of people, processes and systems. We help our clients achieve better results through the effective development of people. We help our clients attract, retain, develop and manage employees. We do this through the implementation of talent management solutions that enable more effective business execution. Today, with more than 900 customer engagements and 16 years of partnership, we are the most experienced SuccessFactors partner in EMEA.

We work in many different industries. Common for our clients is that they are all ambitious, market-leading and have an international presence. Our client list includes companies such as Cargotec, Swiss Re, Autoliv, Novo Nordisk, SKF, Oerlikon, Gist, Kemira, Aramex and many more. We are happy to provide reference calls with clients.

In 2018, GP Strategies acquired Hula Partners, and Effective-People started the transition towards full integration of the GP Strategies brand.
