As the only provider of recruitment-software, Peoplexs received a place in the top 50 of the fastest growing technology-companies. The election, organized by Deloitte, looks at organizations that made a rapid growth over the last 5 years. For Peoplexs, the foundation of this growth is the passion for HR and recruitment and the willingness to contribute to the development of this field. This is made possible by working closely with our partners and customers.
An important element for the nomination is the attention for research and development. Peoplexs pays full attention to development and trends on the field of HR and recruitment and listens carefully to customers and users. The community plays an important role in this respect. As a user of Peoplexs you can share knowledge and experiences with other professionals and contribute ideas for our products. This makes it possible to adapt our products even better to the wishes and needs of the users. By unburdening the administrative load, recruiters are able to focus on what really matters: the people in their organization. With innovative technology we are able to focus on their development and joy in their work.
On Thursday the 13th of October, during a gala the three fastest growing organizations are announced. Peoplexs wishes the fellow nominees all the best in the final ranking.
The summer months have just passed and Peoplexs has not been idle during that time. The development of the application is in full swing and thanks to new partnerships, we can add additional tools including on-demand video-interviews. There are also a number of new organizations that became customer of Peoplexs, including Coolcat, Swarovski and Brilmij. The Peoplexs community, where HR professionals are able to find each other, is expanding.
Coolcat and Swarovski are well-known names. In the Netherlands Brilmij is known for the opticians Pearl and Eye Wish Groeneveld. Also Damen Naval Schelde Shipbuilding, Benefit and Luba Group have chosen for Peoplexs. All organizations are empowered with a lot of experience in the field of recruitment. This will be very useful in further development of the application.
The implementation of Peoplexs will be realized quickly so the companies can start using Peoplexs. From Peoplexs, we would like to welcome these companies.
Internet makes communicating more practical but also impersonal. On a daily basis you receive lots of new candidates with original and interesting application-letters and CV's. You want to know who these people are and you would like to see them in person. Unfortunately there is not enough time to invite everyone for a personal conversation.
At the end of September and in cooperation with Clooks, Peoplexs offers the possibility to add video-interviews to the application-procedure. It is not even required to be present during these sessions. Via email you can invite the candidates for a video-interview in which a number of predefined audio and/or video questions are presented. The process can be recorded via webcam anytime. When the video is done you will receive a message via email that the interview has been completed and is added to the candidate-profile. You can watch it anytime it suits you.
The video-interview provides the ability for a better assessment of the candidate on a fit with your company. Therefore you are able to invite candidates more targeted for a job-interview. The quality of the candidates will be higher and you are able to find the right talent.
If you want to know more about the integration with Clooks and the use of web-based video-interviewing in Peoplexs, please contact us at +31 (0)70-8509100 or via mail at email@example.com
Peoplexs is one of the leading companies for recruitment software on the Danish market. With an expanding business we want to offer a high-quality service to our existing customers and offer the best of our application to fulfil the needs of our new customers. Therefore we are proud to announce that our Danish team will be extended with three new colleagues including four time world champion modern panthatlon Eva Fjellerup.
Eva will start per direct in her new role as managing consultant and will be changing role on the 1st of March to become our new country manager. Until then Eelco Scheltinga will remain in place as Managing Director Nordic. You may know Eva as the four time world champion modern panthatlon in 1990, 1991, 1993 and 1994. She also won a large number of Danish and Nordic Championships, and last but not least she also joint the Olympics in Atlanta in 1996. After her outstanding sports-career she focussed on a professional career in the area of HR, including jobs as a business development manager and organisations consultant.
You could also hear her on the Danish radio as presenter in B&U Sport. The last few years Eva has worked as an independent development consultant where she coached and advised managers and employees in among other individual development, organisation-development, change-management and teambuilding.
Eva's background within the HR branch also gives her lots of experience in talent-management, temporary hiring. At Peoplexs we are looking forward to work with Eva as we see her as enrichment to our company. Besides Eva we also welcome Peter Kristensen as our new sales manager. Peter is salesman by heart and has many years of sales experience. In the past Peter has worked as corporate & retails sales manager at Kaspersky Lab and as sales manager for SiteAttention. Peter has the quality to understand the requirements and needs in HR of organisations and delivers the solution they need. Peter is an energetic and driven person who will add an extra dimension to our sales team.
Our third new colleague is Junaid Ahmad. Junaid will be strengthening our team as a consultant. Despite his young age (26) Junaid has already some years of experience in HR. Among others he worked as a recruitment consultant for iselection and pre-sales and business consultant at CoreAmbition. Junaid has a Master of Science degree in Human Resource Management which will make him a reinforcement of the team. "The addition of these new team members will not only bring our Nordic office to a higher professional level, but will also enrich our team with a wide knowledge of HR skills that will help us lead into a new era, where we move from recruitment only, into Talent Management and Education Solutions" said Eelco Scheltinga, Managing Director Nordic a.i. and CFO Peoplexs Global. "I am convinced our customers will notice a big difference in the way they are serviced going forward".
We welcome Eva, Peter and Junaid and look forward to work with them.
Peoplexs is no exception. We live in an age that people are inherently creative and want to shape their own experiences.
A little over a year ago we launched our Community. To give you, our stakeholders a bigger say leading us to better insights, and better results. We have opened professional places to connect with other Peoplexs professionals on LinkedIn and Facebook.
At our latest community day in October we published the numbers that show your involvement in co-creating thanks to interactive technologies. We have noted a big change in behaviour of almost all of you since the start of this all. The workshops that we have had recently where you shared experiences and imagined ways to improve have fueled the development tank in an unseen way!
We invite you to continue to keep on posting new ideas, and vote for changes. This will continue to deliver improved user experiences, new ways to support your customers higher user satisfaction and return on human capital investments made.
Thank you for creating value by constantly enhancing our product. Your input is always the most important starting point to which we have our strategy emerge over time. The journey is an ongoing road, which has become even more enjoyable since we cooperate the way we currently do.
Given the success in Europe of recent years PeopleXS has decided to continue the current growth strategy and further develop an establishment in Asia for the "Asia Pacific" market. Singapore to be exact. Nils Frenkel has been appointed as Managing Director and is currently exploiting the market there.
Nils has brings experience in setting up new offices and doing international sales. In one of his recent roles as 'Director of Sales' at a service company he was responsible for the APAC region.
The expansion in Asia is a logical result of the path taken in earlier years. to become a global player in the field of recruitment and talent management. With our current platform, we are well placed to serve multinationals and able to also quickly roll them out and make distinction into various countries or regions by segmenting the application. Our different language modules can also be used when deploying the system in these regions.
We have great confidence in this market and the growth they are currently experiencing. Expansion in Asia will make our product and our community of users even more interesting, larger and more professional because more users will participate and contribute ideas. Customers who have an office in Asia will be contacted by us or they can contact us for their recruitment and talent management activities to professionalize it further.

This is a follow-up to the March 2009 announcement of the infrastructure upgrade.
Overall, the infrastructure upgrade was a roaring success, and customers have been raving about the speed.
Here is a quote that reached us: "is peoplexs really so fast or is it only me?"
We got a cake from Pieter Hazelhoff, PerSelectief
As predicted, unfortunately there were a couple of "hiccups" on Monday. But with a full day of "enterprise" level logs/information to analyze, our team of engineers were able to quickly troubleshoot and solve the issues. With a stable system first thing Tuesday, we are able to concentrate on the few bugs that were caused by the upgrade, and those bugs have nearly all been solved and fixed in production already.
The biggest surprise is how fast PeopleXS is now. In the announcement blog, we predicted 20% speed increase, but we have found that nearly across the board the speed improvement is 40% to 200%, and even more in isolated cases. The speed comes from new servers, new application software (ColdFusion 8 Enterprise), a new database platform (MySQL 5.1 Enterprise), and what we call "Automatic Performance Correction".
Errors, time outs, and "white screens" have also been greatly reduced in the system, and we have improved systems to log and report such problems, so that our engineers can rapidly fix them.
Thank you, everyone, for your patience and positive remarks. This new platform will now enable us to focus on developing new features, and enhancing the current user experience to allow our customers to get things done more easily and efficiently. Enjoy!
David van der Put has been appointed as Managing Director PeopleXS Nordic.
Our team in Denmark has delivered some remarkable results in the last couple of years and has performed well in a highly competetive market.
As always at PeopleXS, we started out in Copenhagen as a "garage" business (with David as the first employee) back in 2007. Now, only two years later, we have build-up an impressive track record and are one of the main players in the Danish market. Customers love us for our flexibility and ability to deliver high quality fast.
We wish David all the best in his new position (and in the move to our new office:-)
This is the credo that belongs to the Olympics. Always striving to be swifter, higher stronger in achievements. As you agree, this credo applies not only to sports. However when I was asked to write about my preparation for the Marathon, I thought about the words Citius, Altius, Fortius many times. I have been training and try to get better all the time. I have to make a confession to you: I am not a runner by birth. And still after many work outs, getting to a run takes me some energy. I am always a bit grumpy before I go. It's just not my comfort zone. Better put: I am leaving that zone entirely, once I put on those light weight shoes getting ready for that thing. Only when the first steps are completed it becomes real fun. And that is normally after 5 minutes of running or so. And the run is completed I, like all runners, relive the joy because of released endorphin.
I experienced an expected, but nice surprise some weeks ago. I wanted to run the City Pier City half marathon (21 km) in The Hague, but couldn't, because there were some other commitments I had that Saturday. Although I did some 25 workouts prior to the CPC, according to the running schedule I was still not ready to the full 21km. Two weeks before the actual CPC date, I left home for an 18km run. On half way point (Nike+ and Ipod tell you exactly when you reach it) I felt there was much more energy in my legs than only another 9km to get me home. I figured that, if I would run an extra 1,5km before returning, I would complete 21km. Not too difficult to understand, and doing it felt equally easy. So I did.
At 10,5km (and 125 meters to be exact) I returned. The run back through the dunes, with great ocean views was an easy and fun time. On the way home I realized that going the extra mile makes gives you energy! The mental realization that I would run the first ½ marathon ever in my life, fueled me with a feeling of exuberance, that made forget about sore legs, thirst or the temptation to stop and relax. I only wanted one thing: run it out! A lesson learned was that, being at a half way point and extending a little, (for even better results) makes it relatively easy, because you only have the same predictable distance ahead of you. So getting half way is my focal point now, the rest will follow easily. That is for running.
I have been trying to apply this metaphor in other walks of life, the only difficulty is: finding an answer to the question "when am I half way?" This can apply to your business dealings, projects, relationships or even your life! No Nike/iPod available to tell you exactly where you stand in those situations! However our heart and intuition help us to discover these things. But we simply don't get exact answer on such questions. And that's only good! We better not know when some things will end. So enjoy the ride, because just like running, before you know it, it's over! Citius Altius Fortius, and...Carpe Diem!
Have an outstanding day!
