We want to share some big news – Fitzii has been acquired and we are now part of the Ian Martin Group.
We took the decision to sell after a lot of soul-searching. Fitzii is just over two years old and we’ve been steadily adding customers across North America since we launched our platform last year. What we found in the Ian Martin Group, however was a fit that was too good to ignore. Here’s why we’re excited:
- Ian Martin was one of our first customers. They’ve used the Fitzii platform extensively and can honestly say “we liked the product so much, we bought the company”. Personally, we’re very happy to be joining a company that we’ve worked with, know well and that aligns with our values and beliefs
- Ian Martin is a B Corp. The B stands for “Benefit” and certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance. We always imagined being this kind of company when we “grew up” so are pleased to have been acquired by one.
- Hirefly is also an Ian Martin Group company that leverages Fitzii to deliver a full-service shortlisting package, from ad creation through screening. We’ve worked closely with them for a while now and have discovered there is a great benefit to our customers in having the choice between two approaches. To put it simply, Fitzii offers a platform that can be used by internal hiring teams, while HireFly offers a full-service offering more targeted to small businesses or companies without dedicated recruiting resources. By joining forces we can make sure our customers can choose freely between, and even mix-and-match, the two options. (What’s more, anyone introduced to Hirefly via Fitzii already enjoys a 20% discount).
- Our vision is to make tools for better hiring accessible to as many companies as possible. The financial and operational support Ian Martin brings will allow us to continue to expand and keep our company focus on providing the best product and the best service possible.
We truly believe this news will lead to only good things for our customers. Fitzii will continue to operate as an independent entity, working closely with the other Ian Martin Group companies to make sure we match the right customers to the right solution. We will, however, have the backing and support of a much larger company, allowing us to bring better hiring to more companies faster.
