“With Covid-19, we had to adapt our plans for 2020. We are fortunate to still hit the goals we set out to achieve.
During the pandemic, we expanded to serve customers in the healthcare, high-growth manufacturing, and telco sectors. As employers became more selective in hiring, we took the opportunity to enhance our platform to better support our customers with their existing employees as well,” Jay Huang, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Pulsifi said.
Investor Aaron Chen, Founder of KVC group of companies stated that “As a strong believer in bringing out the potential of people, I was struck by how the Pulsifi team is also so passionate about that vision. Pulsifi benefits any company that values its people, and I am keen to support its growth among my businesses and around the world.”
“Pulsifi is a unique B2B company that built a compelling product that is relevant globally, not only in its home markets. We are excited to partner Pulsifi on their journey to achieve their ambitions,” Joseph Lee, Partner at Kairous Capital mentioned.
“Talent Acquisition and Management at scale is very hard, and I experienced this first hand. Pulsifi is solving this problem in a very unique way, and the team has built a strong technology platform to do so at scale,” Rajesh Lingappa, Co-Founder and Former CTO of RedMart highlighted.
Pulsifi is expanding its market coverage through partners, from Southeast Asia to Europe. Pulsifi is also strategically partnered with SAP SuccessFactors, a global leading human capital management software platform.
“Our regional team has been working with Pulsifi to support multiple countries within Nestlé. They have been flexible to our needs and dependable as a thought partner. They have incorporated our feedback to improve their product proposition which is well appreciated.
I look forward to a more fruitful partnership, as we expand further to more countries” Anjali Menon, Head of Talent Center of Competence – Asia Oceania and Sub-Saharan Africa, Nestlé said.
