Beamery, a London company behind talent lifecycle management solutions, has snapped up a Californian firm.
Flux is described as an internal mobility platform that connects open development and work opportunities with best-fit internal talent. It counts Uber and Peloton among its clients.
Beamery said the acquisition will offer the first unified platform for internal and external resourcing, allowing businesses to tap into the skills of their global talent pool.
“Talent is the driving force behind business success and to gain a market advantage organisations need a different workforce tomorrow than the one they have today,” said Abakar Saidov, Beamery co-founder and CEO.
“Flux’s technology empowers employees to be more self-directed in their development, advancement, and connection to others within their company.
“With this acquisition, we’re creating a more holistic solution – one that unifies internal and external resourcing – to better inform organisations on what drives their talent, hiring and retention goals.”
Nick Ionita, Flux co-founder and CEO, highlighted the importance of providing employees with meaningful work, including exposure to new roles.
“We share Beamery’s belief that talent is intrinsically tied to business success and are excited to go forward together and break down silos between HR and the C-suite to unify employee and candidate data,” he said.
“Helping them learn new skills and envision a growth path at a company should not be underestimated.”
Joint Beamery and Flux customer Mark Eckert, director of talent mobility and immigration at Uber, said: “By empowering employees to move internally we can learn from their movement and offer personalised journeys to employees and candidates that keep them engaged and growing throughout their career here.”
