Lumesse Strengths

Formerly known as StepStone Solutions, the leading HCM applications vendor in Europe changed its name to Lumesse in 2011. With a series of capital infusion from its private equity firm HgCapital parent, Lumesse branched out into other regions in addition to its strong hold in Europe.


With earlier acquisitions of MrTed, a UK-based eRecruiting applications vendor; and Edvantage Group, a Cloud-based elearning developer, Lumesse has assembled a full portfolio of Core HR and talent management applications for succession planning, competency management and HR analytics.


In 2015 Lumesse released TalentObjects, a set of solutions built on the Salesforce App Cloud. The initial suite, TalentObjects:Recruit provides a single platform for recruitment and onboarding with other TalentObjects modules planned for, performance, succession planning, career management, compensation and learning management. The move reinforces Lumesse' positioning as an innovative player capable of leveraging common and open tools such as the Salesforce App Cloud for maximum scalability and global coverage.


In October 2015, Lumesse launched its latest recruitment innovation, Interview Management. This addition to TalentOjbects:Recruit on the Salesforce App Cloud is a next-generation solution designed to provide a more streamlined experience for interviewers and job candidates alike, transforming how companies hire the best talent.


In April 2016, Lumesse launched ETWeb empower the latest evolution of its popular ETWeb suite of Talent Management solutions. ETWeb empower is a SaaS or private cloud Talent Management suite which will include modules for Core HR, Performance Management, Learning, Succession Management and Rewards.


To encourage ease-of-deployment across the enterprise, the suite is delivered with a common user interface on an integrated data foundation. To encourage user adoption, the user interface utilizes modern, consumer-like menus and icons making it a familiar environment for non-technical users. The overarching objective of the solution is Empowerment of employees to self-manage their careers and for managers to facilitate that self-management.


In addition, the company is extending its flagship TalentLink recruitment solution with new capabilities including job distribution, power searching to ease recruiter effort in matching candidates to positions, and talent portals to improve candidate experience. The new capabilities, added to the core solution create an even more comprehensive platform for talent acquisition teams.
