Although HCL Enterprises has a 30-year history, HCL Technologies is a relatively young company formed in 1998. During this period, HCL has built unique strengths in IT applications (custom applications for industry solutions and package implementation), IT infrastructure management and business process outsourcing, while maintaining and extending its leadership in product engineering.
In December 2008 HCL completed the acquisition of U.K.-based Axon for £441 million. The new entity known as HCL Enterprise Applications Services (EAS) is a Business Transformation consultancy that delivers significant value to large, complex organizations through the innovative implementation and support of ERP technologies
Following the acquisition, HCL Enterprise Application Services looked to take immediate advantage of the larger infrastructure and capability offering of the HCL business by building their presence in Europe. To be successful in this growth, HCL had particular gaps across their EMEA wide leadership team both across vertically aligned sales as well as leadership of the delivery business.
Working with key stakeholders EngagePSG proceeded by actively mapping out their most relevant competitors across the necessary capabilities. Our mapping covered over 200 Sales and Delivery Leaders across the UK and Europe. It provide HCL EAS with deep insight into the structure and key players from their competitors and the markets they were targeting.
“The team at Engage has surpassed all of our expectations at sourcing exceptional candidates that have all been professionally headhunted from our competitors. We use two search firms and 6 contingency agencies. In my opinion the team at Engage combine the professionalism of a top tier search firm with the speed of service and adaptability of an excellent contingency agency. Engage have become within 12 months, one of HCL AXON’s key suppliers and will certainly play an important part in helping HCL AXON to achieve our growth targets.”EMEA Recruitment Manager
