Last year, the Amsterdam-based soft-skill scaleup Lepaya acquired Smartenup, a hard-skills expert company, to consolidate its position in the training market. And now Lepaya has announced its expansion to Sweden, following the successful launch in Belgium and Germany.
This marks the next step in the Dutch company’s expansion plan. “Sweden is a market in which organisations regard employee satisfaction to be of great importance. By letting employees develop skills for the labour market of the future, both digital competencies and soft skills such as empathy and persuasiveness, organisations become more productive and their employees happier. Swedish organisations have focused heavily on closing these skills gaps in recent years. We are very excited to start helping them do this as efficiently as possible!” says René Janssen, founder and managing director of Lepaya.
