PeopleFluent’s Parent Company, Learning Technologies Group, Acquires Breezy HR
Acquisition of Breezy HR brings a range of benefits to LTG and its operating businesses, including the opportunity to enhance PeopleFluent’s Talent Acquisition enterprise product through integration with Breezy HR’s product features.
RALEIGH, NC-- April 17, 2019-- PeopleFluent’s parent company, Learning Technologies Group plc (“LTG”), the leading provider of integrated talent management and learning technologies software and services, has announced the acquisition of Breezy HR.
Breezy HR provides small to medium businesses (SMBs) with feature-rich, intuitive and user-friendly recruitment software in order to optimize their processes and maximize productivity.
The addition of Breezy HR to LTG’s best-of-breed talent and learning businesses is expected to further consolidate the Group’s position in the talent acquisition marketplace, extending its existing enterprise client base to include a new SMB audience.
Breezy HR will continue to operate under its current brand identity, but will also function as a sub-brand within PeopleFluent, further extending the enterprise brand’s market whilst bolstering Breezy HR’s market positioning and visibility.
Stephen Bruce, Managing Director of PeopleFluent, commented: “PeopleFluent is very excited to expand its comprehensive talent management solutions with Breezy HR, which will bolster existing recruiting capabilities to our current enterprise customers and extend penetration into the middle market. With this integration, we improve upon our best-of-breed talent acquisition solution and now provide current and prospective clients with a deeply innovative, intuitive recruiting experience that can be rapidly deployed along with PeopleFluent’s other talent and learning solutions.”
LTG Chief Executive, Jonathan Satchell, commented, “I am delighted to welcome our colleagues from Breezy HR into the Group. We are incredibly excited by Breezy HR’s exceptional talent acquisition software. Breezy HR has enjoyed strong organic growth and has excellent future potential, which we feel can be enhanced with support from LTG as part of our suite of integrated talent solutions.
“We will be seeking to realize swift synergies with our enterprise solution in the PeopleFluent business to the mutual benefit of both companies. It is our intention to bring PeopleFluent’s expertise to bear on the Breezy HR product roadmap, providing the necessary insight to enable further development of the SMB offer so that it also presents a compelling proposition to the mid-market segment.”
Breezy HR CEO, Darren Bounds, will continue with the business as Managing Director, in addition to joining the PeopleFluent senior leadership team.
Speaking of the acquisition, Darren Bounds commented, “Breezy HR’s mission has always been to provide a uniquely simple-to-use, yet powerful way to help businesses manage hiring processes. I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to combine our vision with that of Learning Technologies Group, enabling us to deliver greater business value and product innovation to both existing and future customers, all at a more accelerated pace than would have been possible on our own.”
Breezy HR is expected to operate as ‘business as usual’ throughout the 100-day integration.
