Kazi embraces independence: charting a future ahead

Kazi, a HR Tech pioneer active in employee-employer alignment and engagement, announces its evolution into an autonomous entity after two years in the Cronos ecosystem. (Cronos is one of Belgium’s largest ICT service providers.) With a renewed focus on technology development, product — and international expansion, Kazi is set to transform employee workplace engagement and talent retention. The company aims to significantly reduce ‘mismatches’ in the labor market by helping clients focus on a stronger evaluation of talent and consideration of talent soft skills, work values, and team roles, moving beyond what has traditionally been the norm, a focus on just hard skills.

The management team, led by Lenny Benaïcha along with Bart Van Loon and Jelle Mattelaer, brings decades of experience in HR consulting and technology. They replace founding CEO Nikolaas Bellens, who returns to consultancy and teaching. The new team will integrate their expertise in monitoring and improving international and multicultural teams into Kazi’s technology.

Kazi’s mission is to align employee work expectations with their daily workplace activities, leading to enhanced job engagement, happiness and productivity. The company’s methodology, complex yet essential for technological facilitation, is focused on optimizing employee well-being. The company looks forward to meeting its future challenges and spearheading new innovations, and is committed to leading organizations to where every employee is heard and valued; to where their jobs align with their respective, individual expectations.

As a Belgian HR Tech company, Kazi helps identify professional job expectations and soft skills of both people and jobs. It thus offers the world’s first two-sided (talent & job) work expectations assessment tool, academically validated, providing insights for better hiring matches, engagement, job rotation, performance reviews and retention.
