Over 42% of SMEs in Latin America list building and retaining strong teams as a major challenge, according to a report by the Economist Intelligence Unit. Unlike with MNCs, talent management remains a foreign concept to smaller, resource-strapped companies. Acsendo founder Carlos Santana (37) wants to formalize and strengthen talent management within SMEs by providing them with tools to favor analytics over gut instincts. Acsendo offers SMEs access to a low cost, easy-to-use, and customizable platform for talent optimization; its data-driven tools allow businesses to streamline decisions around talent acquisition, retention, and compensation. The company has impacted over 40,000 employees from over 100 companies, reducing employee turnover per company by 20% on average.
