Since its inception, iNostix has grown to become a well-known thought leader and is the number one predictive HR analytics & HR research advisor within the Benelux. With activities also spanning beyond the Benelux and a fast-growing group of loyal social followers around the world, the acquisition of iNostix represents an excellent strategic fit, reinforcing Deloitte’s leading market position in Human Capital.

Integrating our expertise within both Deloitte’s Human Capital services and the next-generation Business Analytics practice will be a powerful combination to address complex people-related challenges.” Jeroen Delmotte, Ph.D., Chief Scientist and Co-Founder iNostix, adds: “Partnering with our customers has always been vital to providing the highest levels of insight and through our integration in Deloitte, we will be uniquely positioned to respond to our clients’ analytical needs.”
“The acquisition of iNostix is an important step in the growth of our Human Capital offering,” confirms Yves Van Durme, Human Capital Lead at Deloitte. “Deloitte’s ‘Global Human Capital Trends 2015’ report highlighted that data and analytics are key to solving many problems such as engagement, leadership, learning and recruitment. This year’s edition of the report shows that 32% of respondents are ready to apply people analytics (up by 30%) and more than 75% consider this trend as (very) important. Momentum is growing and this integration will enable us to better serve our clients and reach our goal of becoming number one in human capital analytics.”
