Phenom Acquires HR Tech Startup Tydy

Phenom has announced the acquisition of Tydy, a human resources technology company focused on delivering streamlined preboarding and onboarding experiences for employees. This move marks Phenom's fifth acquisition and another addition to its Intelligent Talent Experience platform.

The Phenom platform now offers a seamless employee journey from onboarding to offboarding by providing the necessary operational steps, verifications, and documentation for an employee's first day.

“Onboarding is a pivotal moment in the talent journey where candidates become employees — and where talent leaders can set them up for success. It is here where first impressions are made, and each interaction has the potential to create a lasting impact. With the addition of Tydy, we’re poised to make this a great experience, and empower organizations to ensure their employees are productive from the start,” said Mahe Bayireddi, CEO and Co-Founder of Phenom.

Founded in 2019, Tydy is an employee data platform that removes manual effort from HR, IT, and operations teams to provide efficient and personalized employee onboarding. Through the acquisition, Phenom's platform will be directly enriched by all of the capabilities of Tydy EDP, including compliance checks and approval orchestration, background checks, documentation collection and validation, initiation of payroll, and many more.

“Since Tydy’s inception, we’ve wanted work to flow seamlessly for everyone. We realized there was an opportunity to overhaul onboarding experiences and complex HR operations for the better by combining persona-based segmentation, integrations, automation, and intelligence into one solution. We believe that Tydy’s technology and workflows will become a key piece of Phenom’s holistic approach to deliver the best hiring, growth and retention outcomes in the industry,” said Menon, CEO and Co-Founder of Tydy.

The acquisition follows Phenom's major HR tech innovations unveiled at IAMPHENOM 2024, including the Talent Experience Engine and X+ Agents. These innovations aim to help candidates find jobs faster, employees develop skills, recruiters become more productive, talent marketers engage efficiently, talent leaders optimize hiring, managers build better teams, HR align development with goals, and HRIT integrate HR tech seamlessly.

Last year, Phenom partnered with Pontoon to enhance the recruitment process by enabling Pontoon to effectively implement and utilize the platform.
