A brief history of GP Strategies SuccessFactors EMEA Practice:

  • We started in 1988 by providing training to AP Moller-Maersk.

  • From the end of the 90s we started to focus on Learning Management and we developed our own Learning Management System.

  • In 2000, we became partners with SumTotal Systems Inc. and gained experience in talent management areas.

  • In 2005, we partnered with SuccessFactors Inc. and started to deliver our first SaaS solutions.

  • In 2008, we undertook a management buy-out and became an independent company.

  • In 2011, Effective-People became an independent company focused on systems for Business Execution and HR.

  • In 2014, GP Strategies acquired Effective-People to strengthen global delivery capabilities in the SuccessFactors area.

  • In 2017, Effective-People started the transition towards full integration of the GP Strategies brand

  • In 2018, Effective-People is still the name of our legal entity, but we have adopted the GP Strategies brand as GP Strategies SuccessFactors EMEA Practice

In short - we have changed names a few times over the years, but we are still the same people, dedicated to quality and expertise.
