HR Path plans to expand its value proposition in all countries where the Group is already present, with priority given to the United States and Europe. Whitaker-Taylor is the first company to be acquired from this plan.
With both organic and external growth, HR Path’s objectives are to:
- Double its revenues within 4 years

“We believe that by joining forces with Whitaker-Taylor to expand our US and BENELUX capabilities, to further serve customers of all sizes is indeed a very strategic move and one that is welcomed by the Group. Our combined focus will be on HR services covering SAP SuccessFactors packaged solution
including managed payroll services. This is the first acquisition to benefit from the recent $136 million dollar financing, with the goal to become the absolute global leader in services dedicated to human resources”, said Wim De Smet, HR Path Americas Partner.
