During their 15 years of experience in HR services, the founders Florent Letourneur and François Gougeon have acquired know-how in the process of recruiting the best talents. Along with their professional activity, they are passionate about social networks. Active and influential users for several years, they have mastered the codes and uses of the main platforms.

For them, one thing was obvious: the world of HR was becoming totally out of step with the evolution of digital trends, and few companies knew how to use social networks effectively, either to find new employees or to develop their attractiveness to of these. To solve this problem, few innovative offers. They see it as a great opportunity.

After an upstream work started in September 2015, the two entrepreneurs decided to launch the company in February 2016. They then put themselves in Lean mode to constantly adapt their offer to the needs of their customers. Thus support on the e-reputation part can take several forms and adapt according to skills and internal motivations: delegation of community management, training, intervention in specific areas, etc.

The constant desire for innovation that drives the team makes it possible to offer new services: for example, on certain job offers, the future candidate can watch three videos each presenting the director, a manager and a future colleague, ideal to immerse yourself in the heart of your future business.

Development is rapid and after six months, four employees have already joined the Rennes company: two HR profiles reinforced by two webmarketing profiles. A success well above forecasts which allows to consider a national development. But this will go through the opening of regional local agencies, the Breton start-up keen to keep a real proximity with its customers.

In order to establish themselves in new cities, the two founders are therefore looking for new employees with solid experience in the world of recruitment as well as a real appetite for digital innovations and social networks. So new challenges for the Happy To Meet You team. That’s good, this team of enthusiasts love to meet them.
