Talent Peaks keeps growing fast!

By: Joram Timmerman

How our DNA makes a difference.


Our first year has just passed and what an incredible journey we’ve already had! As you might know, Talent Peaks was founded by our two managing partners: Stijn Vangenechten and Joram Timmerman. Today, our team consists of 14 consultants, each with their own expertise in strategy, implementation and people analytics.

One of the success factors of our growth is the combination of our company DNA (core values) and unique expertise. Our consultants bring value to a company, each with their unique skill set and extraordinary talents, but all with one common belief and drive to interact with our customers; our DNA. For us, this means: respect, team spirit, commitment, deep competence, result driven and FUN!

A few examples of how this DNA reflects our daily business:

Flexibility, rhythm and fun

Did you know we don’t actually have a traditional office? Our team is flexible and meets wherever our assignments take us. We benefit from the best new flexible workspaces and nice customer locations. Depending on our customer’s needs, we simply blend the best consulting expertise in customer teams to ensure the best possible outcome.

How we keep in touch, you might ask? Rhythm is key here. Besides using our company WhatsApp group and internal knowledge base, we empower team engagement in multiple ways:

  • Talent Peaks Meetups: every month the entire consulting team meets up at a special location, including some Belgian beers and dinner to meet in an informal way and exchange new ideas and more personal topics.
  • Talent Peaks Update Calls: a bi-weekly call in which we discuss topics like sales, marketing, best practices and new certifications related to our focus and targets.
  • Talent Peaks Update Meetings: around six times a year we organize a one-day meeting including informal dinner and drinks, team building activity and hotel stay over. And on a more active note, some of our team members combine fun with an early morning run too:) On this day we discuss our focus, actuals vs target, new business ideas, best practices, etc. Last month, for example, our location was Sint-Niklaas, Belgium. Other locations were: Antwerp, Utrecht, Breda, Rotterdam and Ghent.

Why? Empower our Consultants to help our customers thrive

At the end of the day, our team has one goal in mind: helping our customers in optimizing their talent, customer and user journeys to make them flourish and grow. We do that by implementing Salesforce apps in the best possible way, providing valuable insights through People Analytics and optimizing processes through Strategic Consulting. We are happy to guide you too!
