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.
