Our history briefly summarized:

  • We started in 1988 by providing training to AP Moller-Maersk.
  • From the end of the 90s we started to focus on Learning Management and we developed our own Learning Management System.
  • In 2000, we became partners with SumTotal Systems Inc. and gained experience in talent management areas.
  • In 2005, we partnered with SuccessFactors Inc. and started to deliver our first SaaS solutions.
  • In 2008, we undertook a management buy-out and became an independent company.
  • In 2011, Effective-People became an independent company focused on systems for Business Execution and HR.
  • In 2014, GP Strategies acquired Effective-People to strengthen global delivery capabilities in the SuccessFactors area.
  • In 2017, Effective-People started the transition towards full integration of the GP Strategies brand

So in short – we have changed names a few times over the years, but we are still Effective at Heart.

Ownership: Effective-People is owned by GP Strategies and operates under the GP Strategies name in all markets.
