Who is Talenteum?
Talenteum connects European and African talent with companies looking to enrich their teams with the best teleworking employees.
We have more than 200 collaborators who put their talent at the disposal of our clients full-time (40 hours per week), and which are located in a multitude of countries in Africa and Europe.
They work in nearly 25 disciplines, ranging from computer science to accounting, medical and administrative.
We grow rapidly as our clients’ demands are numerous, and grow faster than the number of talented collaborators we integrate daily.
We also distinguish ourselves by our approach to the type of collaboration we establish with our Clients. Our employees work only on a long-term basis. This is how they become permanently involved and adopt the values of the company they join, despite the distance that separates them.
In addition to offering long-term missions, we are committed to provide the best compensation to our collaborators. Thus, we recruit only the best who are well-paid and who are comfortable to project themselves in the long term for the company for which they work.
We exclude principals who try to pay as little as possible and who have a temporary work vision.
Where is Talenteum located?
Talenteum is headquartered in the Indian Ocean. We operate in 100% remote mode. However, we have offices in several countries, either directly or through a local partnership. Like Mauritius, Madagascar, the Ivory Coast …Nevertheless, the Talents that we make available to our Clients are located in many more countries and work remotely, from where they are most effective: in a webcafe, at home, in a business center…
In what year was Talenteum created?
Talenteum was established in July 2015.
can you pay such high salaries to your employees? Is this model sustainable?
Talenteum only recruits talented employees.
Talenteum’s Customers seek only the best collaborators and are willing to pay accordingly.
In addition, Talenteum Customers are located in countries different from these employees, in countries where the cost of labor is generally high and where it is difficult to find high-quality collaborators. So a fortiori, they are willing to accept high remunerations.
In addition, Talenteum’s functioning is highly virtualized, thanks to pro-active processes and our culture of remote working (versus face-to-face).
So our structural costs are lower than in a traditional business. We are more competitive and we directly benefit our Customers. The economy is helping them to finance higher wages to attract the best and ensure their long-term loyalty.
How are you different from a job search site?
We are neither a recruitment site nor a freelance site.
A traditional recruitment site is aimed at the local market, enabling a company to recruit an employee who will work on the premises of the company.
Moreover, a recruitment site is a simple intermediary between candidates and offers of employment.
The difference with Talenteum is that we carefully select and recruit talented employees working remotely especially from Africa for mostly European companies.
We are not a freelance site.
Indeed, we favor long missions, accompanied by a strong adherence of the employee to the values of the company for which he works remotely. We prefer long-term outsourcing.
Talenteum collaborator integrates fully with the company. He is part of his team.
It does not intervene to carry out given tasks, but rather to collaborate in the long term.
We are convinced that the best talents created more value by becoming involved in the long term, rather than working on a multitude of small contracts, short durations, or on part-time assignments. This approach allows him to considerably reduce the time lost in seeking new contracts.
It’s better for the company, and it’s also better for their careers.
