Discovery Acquires Performance Improvement Experts - StrategA
Release Date: 12 April 2011
Midlands-based Discovery, the highly regarded graduate talent management company, has bought performance improvement experts StrategA as the first of several planned acquisitions for 2011/12.
“StrategA complements our broad base offering of talent management solutions”, says Discovery’s MD Jonathan Evans.
“Our reputation for delivering the highest calibre graduate talent to industry supported with the finest accredited training programmes means our clients are able to build sustainable teams of future business leaders. The addition of StrategA ensures we are able to further support business with ongoing tools and expertise that improves performance and aids retention.”
StrategA’s flagship products include the unique three-dimensional biological pattern-based behavioural profiling system, Parallax, which is already providing performance improvement solutions for a number of world-class FTSE companies.
Complementing this and underpinned by the same technology are the ‘role focused’ competency framework appraisal / training & development systems. Unlike any other profiling system, Parallax identifies brain-based behaviour patterns. This added information enables the user to understand deep level behaviour and therefore deliver more reliable information.
StrategA’s MD, Chris Battye comments; “We are delighted to become part of Discovery and are excited at the prospect of working together. Our values are aligned closely with those of Discovery and we share a common purpose – to enable businesses to achieve sustainable performance improvement. Our expertise helps businesses to out-perform through appropriate hiring strategies and people development despite being faced with unprecedented economic challenges. This combined advantage creates multiple opportunities for our group”.
