OutMatch, a leader in delivering actionable predictive analytics to build world-class workforces, today announced it has acquired Pomello, an analytics solution provider that helps companies understand and hire based on their unique CultureDNA™, and improve employee engagement. The combination recognizes that people power great companies, enabling organizations to define and enhance their culture, hire employees that excel on the job, and keep them engaged, driving performance and profitability.
With the acquisition of Pomello, OutMatch strengthens its unrivaled predictive and actionable workforce analytics. By not only predicting candidate success on the job, but now also measuring fit with a company’s culture, OutMatch is expanding its ability to assist companies in hiring and developing the right employees for the right positions.
“This acquisition recognizes the growing importance of culture fit in helping companies build an exceptional workforce that drives productivity, customer satisfaction, and business success,” said Greg Moran, President and CEO of OutMatch. “Bringing the strengths of OutMatch in talent selection and employee development together with Pomello’s expertise in improving culture is a perfect match, and a huge step toward transforming the world of work.”
Founded in 2012, Pomello has grown rapidly – including revenue that has tripled this year – with customers in multiple industries, including healthcare, banking, high tech, and manufacturing. Its technology benchmarks an organization’s culture by gathering critical input on how employees view the company’s core values, as well as their own motivators, and then measures candidates against that data to gauge culture fit. By continually engaging in the process, companies can better understand their CultureDNA™ and consistently improve it to enhance performance.
“This acquisition joins two companies that are truly better together,” said Oliver Staehelin, CEO of Pomello. “I appreciate the hard work and commitment of the Pomello team to helping our customers hire and develop happier, more engaged, more productive employees. As we continue to serve those clients and attract new ones, we are thrilled to become part of OutMatch, which shares our belief that people are at the core of business success.”
Pomello will maintain its offices and employees in San Francisco. It will continue to serve existing clients and work to attract new ones, while OutMatch and Pomello also pursue strategic opportunities to integrate the solutions each provides to customers.
With an unequalled data set driven by scientifically proven candidate assessments, OutMatch processes 20 million assessments annually at over 200,000 locations, helping companies predict candidate success on the job, measure the impact of hiring, and continually refine their hiring process to propel productivity and profitability.
