A 7th participation for GENEO: Convictions RH

ConvictionsRH announces the capital increase of 10 new Partners(*) as well as a new institutional investor, GENEO Capital Entrepreneur. Sustained growth for a consultancy that focuses on human capital.

With more than 180 employees, ConvictionsRH is a consulting firm that has developed around four areas of expertise: HR Policies & Organization, HRIS & Digital HR, Transformation & Management and Change Management. A key player in the private and public sectors, ConvictionsRH has achieved a turnover of €24 million in 2019, representing sustained growth of around 20% per year since its creation in 2007.

Committed advice that puts people at the heart of transformations

Propelled from its beginnings by the desire to shake up the codes of the consulting industry, ConvictionsRH continues to grow while remaining true to its values of intellectual honesty, creative audacity, collective intelligence and shared pleasure. More than ever committed to placing people at the heart of transformations, ConvictionsRH continues to ensure operational excellence which earns it the trust of its clients, but also a strong internal promotion policy which earns it the loyalty of its employees.

Institutional investors at the rendezvous

The arrival of Bpifrance and Rives Croissance in 2017 in the capital of ConvictionsRH had already opened up new development prospects. To this support, which has now been renewed, can now be added the particularly consistent support of GENEO Capital Entrepreneur. "ConvictionsRH is delighted to join the GENEO Capital Entrepreneur community. We have identified with their entrepreneurial spirit from the very first discussions. We are thus better equipped to accelerate our development" explains Jean-Pierre BEYLAT, President of ConvictionsRH.

François PICARLE, Managing Partner of GENEO Capital Entrepreneur adds : "As a historical expert in HR information systems, ConvictionsRH now offers its clients a global approach to help them develop and enhance the value of their human capital, particularly through digital technology. At GENEO, we are fully convinced of the relevance of ConvictionsRH's know-how. It is a perfect response to the expectations of structural transformations in companies, expectations that we feel are even more pressing due to the democratization of new forms of work".

Denis COUDERCHET, Director of Financial Engineering at Rives Croissance: "Benefiting from recognised operational excellence, ConvictionsRH still has very strong development potential in its market after several years of sustained organic growth. The quality of the founders and key managers and the access to capital of new Partners will be key success factors for future development and success. We are very proud and honored to continue the capital partnership with the Founding Partners and key managers of ConvictionsRH".

"At a time when the strategic challenges facing companies are today particularly focused on human organization and digitalization, Bpifrance is keen to renew its confidence in ConvictionsRH, which has demonstrated a great capacity for innovation in its field, and to continue to support its growth," says Constance PAULIAC, Head of investment monitoring at Bpifrance.

Human capital as an engine of growth

The 180 employees are the pride of the 5 Founding Partners - Jean-Pierre BEYLAT, Thomas ESTADIEU, Jean-Marc FROMENT, Loïc JOUENNE and Matthieu LAUDEREAU - who have developed an ambitious intrapreneurial policy, valuing professional and personal investment. As part of the operation with GENEO, this policy is now reflected in the capital increase of 10 new Partners (*) as of June 1st, 2020. They follow the path of Maïder NEBOUT in 2012 as well as Florence GERAUD, Isabelle VAN HOORNE and Loïc RAYNAUD in 2017 - all four of whom will become shareholders of ConvictionsRH with the same entrepreneurial logic dear to the firm.

"Sharing value is one of the internal drivers of growth at ConvictionsRH that we at GENEO value highly. We are therefore very proud to support the ConvictionsRH team in its continued development. Thanks to the Growth Notebook, we will fully mobilize our community of experts and entrepreneurs at their service," adds François PICARLE.

ConvictionsRH's ambition is to double in size by 2024 to reach 50 million euros in turnover, by accelerating its development around a unifying corporate project: that of being the leading independent HR and Transformation consulting firm, but also the leading influencer on digital and managerial practices, recommended by 100% of its clients, with a long-term commitment to society and concerned about the well-being of 100% of its employees.
