“This year will be the tipping point, I can feel it.” That’s what I said to my team at the start of 2015. And then again in 2016. And then again...you get the idea. But as it turns out, 2017 really was the tipping point for PeopleDoc. Looking at our year-end results, we doubled our revenue, hired 75 employees, gained 225 new customers and maintained 100% customer retention. At this stage, it looks like things should get easier. But this is exactly when it gets dangerous to lose focus.

More than 5,000 leaders from 6 continents are meeting this year at HR Tech World Amsterdam to share their vision for the future of HR and explore the new technologies that will impact it, such as robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things, cognitive computing and chatbots.
In June, we announced Advanced Document Generation, a new feature to help HR build custom documents in ⅓ the time it takes today. Expanding our existing HR document generation capabilities for more static documents, Advanced Document Generation reduces the time it takes for HR to create complex, logic-based documents - and reduces the risk of error. This innovation was the result of collaboration with our customers, as well as a major effort from our R&D team. In this post, we’ll explore why PeopleDoc chose to invest document generation.

This past May, PeopleDoc launched a social action initiative to support two organizations that are doing amazing work with youth and vulnerable groups. This week, I spoke with Yann Perchec, CTO at PeopleDoc about one of these organizations. Simplon is a France-based company that is working to train vulnerable groups living in disadvantaged areas in computer programming. Their goal is to provide comprehensive professional training to young people and other disenfranchised groups so they can successfully find employment or start their own business.
At our company retreat this past May, PeopleDoc identified two nonprofit organizations that we as a company are proud to lend our support to. I caught up with Karine Rivoire, PeopleDoc’s Regional Operations Manager for the UKI & Nordics, who presented one of these organizations at our retreat. We talked about the compelling work and mission of this organization, called LP4Y, which trains youth living in extreme poverty in the Philippines, Vietnam, India, and Indonesia through formalized programs that teach young adults how to create, build, and manage a small business. You can watch some of their amazing stories here.
