Hasselt (Belgium) – The Belgian HR software company Thalento® has acquired an important share in Facelytix, the technology developed by Ghita Ramdhiansing and Sevi Tuominen of the Dutch company Clearwater Skyfields BV. Ben Greeven, CEO of Thalento®: ‘Their videotest revolutionises the way job candidates are screened. We are convinced that the candidate of the future no longer wants to complete questionnaires for half an hour if the same can be done via a 10-minute recording with a smartphone. Ghita and Sevi have developed the technology underlying this concept. With the expertise of Thalento® we are now working hard to get it validated and into a SaaS-model.’ By the end of March Facelytix NV plans to have the first organisations working on its platform.

Hasselt (Belgium) – Joris Peumans and Ben Greeven, two Belgian entrepreneurs, are creating an HR Tech Valley on the Corda Tech Campus in Hasselt (Belgium). According to them ‘too much of HR ’s time and effort is focused on processes instead of on people. HR Tech is going to change this.’ In the HR Tech Valley they bring together HR Tech Companies, academics, HR Engagors and Career Owners. ‘We believe that’s the best way to co-create solutions for HR’s current and future challenges.’ In a first phase Peumans and Greeven want to raise €10 million for the investment fund that will fuel HR Tech Valley.
