USG People expands online services with Adver-Online
Interest in Adver-Online B.V. strengthens USGÂ People's online proposition
Almere, 24 April 2013 - Today USG People has taken another step in improving its
online proposition by acquiring 51% of the shares in Adver-Online. Established
in 2002, Adver-Online is active in the field of online job market communications
and is focused strongly on creating tailor-made campaigns, publishing job
vacancies and assisting recruitment and selection processes.
Adver-Online has also developed into a specialist in recruitment software,
offering a comprehensive proposition including mobile job applications, 'jobs
at' websites, and various assessment and screening tools for the SME and
corporate markets. The company launched the recruitment application HROffice
specifically for this purpose. HROffice is an extremely modern online
application that allows clients to manage their entire integrated recruitment
and selection process. HROffice gives USGÂ People the opportunity to further
develop its online HR services.
Rob Zandbergen, CEO of USGÂ People N.V.: "This interest is in line with our
strategy of also expanding our online HRÂ services. By taking this interest
USGÂ People is acquiring the future-proof online HRÂ solution that is HROffice. We
are convinced that Adver-Online and the HROffice application are valuable
additions to our services portfolio. Not only to support our own activities, but
above all as a valuable online service that Unique, for instance, could offer
its SMEÂ clients. The HROffice application enables clients to manage their entire
HRÂ process and related media process on their own."
Hans van Rijnswoud, CEO of Adver-Online B.V. / HROffice: "The interest that
USGÂ People is taking allows us to strengthen the rollout of our services, both
domestically and internationally. With USGÂ People we are able to grow even
quicker and develop our services further. The synergy between Adver-
Online/HROffice as an innovative provider of HRÂ solutions, and USGÂ People as a
temporary staffing organisation and total provider of flexible staffing
services, enables us to offer the market a modular online total solution with
clients only paying for the services they need for their organisation. We
welcome this collaboration that will open many doors for both parties."
The acquisition was paid in cash with the company's own resources and will
immediately contribute to earnings.
