Kuala Lumpur – April 5, 2022 – ECC International, a leading process improvement solutions provider in Southeast Asia, and Accendo Technologies, the only Asia-based talent intelligence platform, have entered into a partnership with the goal of providing advanced talent intelligence solutions for larger enterprises in the Philippines. The partnership will build further on ECCI’s strength in talent development, process improvement and digital transformation consulting, while helping companies in the country attract, retain, develop and engage the right employees for their evolving needs.
As organizations aim to win in the new talent landscape, they need to implement newer work models that address employees’ need and the business’s need for performance. Getting the balance right requires new tools and capabilities to realize both talent and business outcomes. This is where Accendo’s Talent Intelligence Platform can help organizations bring their talent strategies to life while reducing operational workloads.
With this objective in mind, ECCI and Accendo have partnered together to bring advanced talent assessment and development capabilities for the Philippine market. Speaking about the new agreement, Karthik Subburaman, ECCI’s Regional Director, stated that “the needs of companies in the Philippines are fast evolving, and as innovators in providing the right talent solutions to our growing customer base, we found TalentPulse from Accendo to be a practical yet perfect solution. We are excited about the great possibilities of value creation we can jointly do for Filipino corporates. This will greatly complement the digital learning and talent solutions that we have on offer, enabling companies to create a talent strategy that aligns with their business strategy.”
In addition to its learning services, ECCI provides business consultancy and services to Filipino corporations. Commenting on the partnership, Sharma Lachu, Founder and CEO of Accendo, added that “We are very excited with our partnership with ECCI. As innovators in the talent space, we seek like-minded organisations that share our vision of helping HR drive their digital HR agenda, be more data-driven, and help organisations achieve agility and resilience. ECCI has had an impressive track record in helping companies better their people processes and shares our beliefs in talent management. We’re excited to expand into the Philippines with them as partners.”
In the age of constant disruption, ECCI is bringing TalentPulse in the local market to address the need for a consolidated assessment marketplace, as well as the constant push to increase talent decision quality in the hiring process. Significantly reducing the risk of a wrong hire/promotion can have a drastic impact on an organisation’s performance and bottom line.
Organizational performance is a function of its people and processes. ECCI helps drive performance excellence in companies through process improvement interventions in the form of consulting, assessment and technology solutions implementation.
