Filderstadt, 10 December 2018 – With its subsidiary KWP INSIDE HR GmbH, Heilbronn, leading HR and HR IT full service provider, All for One Steeb AG is the go-to partner for digital HR transformation. Regarding this position, All for One Steeb is aiming to fully explore the potential of digital value creation of the HR line of business. Therefore talent management is receiving more and more attention. To take this trend into account, All for One Steeb AG will be acquiring with effect from 1 January 2019 all of the shareholdings in TalentChamp Consulting GmbH, Vienna, its subsidiary TalentChamp Consulting (Deutschland) GmbH, Munich, included.

Established in 2001, the company today is a·recognised talent management and cloud specialist in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (the so-called DACH region). The business model is focussing on implementation projects for upper midmarket and large accounts, »ready-to-use« solution packages covering preconfigured modules of SAP SuccessFactors with comprehensive support on a fixed-price basis, for which TalentChamp was recognised with an HR Innovation Award 2017 (category: »HR Services & Operations«). With its 35 certified employees this SAP SuccessFactors specialist is providing more than 100 upper midmarket and large accounts customers with comprehensive talent management know-how.

While Michael Repnik, one of TalentChamp’s founders and shareholders, will be concentrating on managing the LearnChamp Consulting GmbH, which continues to be independent, Christoph Gerhold, also TalentChamp co-founder and shareholder, will remain with the company as managing director following the acquisition, to push the business forward together with Kai Göttmann, spokesman of the management of KWP INSIDE HR.

»We’re setting a strategic course for the future with this transaction. Together, All for One Steeb and KWP serve the largest SAP HR customer base in Germany. Our joint potential is enormous in light of how most businesses have yet to even begin moving to the cloud. We’ve been working with KWP on selected client projects within cross-business-unit teams since 2016 and supporting one other in winning new customers. The spirit is great and the results are outstanding«, explained Gerhold.

»TalentChamp has cloud DNA, which means that KWP and TalentChamp complement each other superbly when it comes to customers and service portfolios. Collectively, the two companies offer both new and existing customers significant added value for their digital HR transformation with the most extensive HR process and technology expertise for SAP solutions in conjunction with an array of HR best practices specially designed for the midmarket sector«, Göttmann underlines the customer’s benefits. »This strategic acquisition will help us to strengthen our leadership position within the SAP Cloud HR market in countries where German is spoken, and will be supporting our customers end-to-end to fully explore the digital growth potential within the HR Line of business«, added Göttmann.
