VK acquires 25% of HR services developer Goodt, a Sber500 graduate

HR scenarios and products based on VK cloud solutions are expected to be taken to market.

Goodtis a graduate of the third batch of the Sber500 international accelerator. The company develops automation solutions for HR processes under the Rostalent brand.

The company used to be part-owned by GK Lanit. In 2017 Lanit Ventures invested $1 million in Goodt. The amount of the new deal with VK has not been disclosed.

The acquisition will enable VK to expand its HR Tech business area that includes services for corporate socialization, process automation and staff expertise management.

Integration of VK and Goodt solutions will take place in three stages: at first both companies will accelerate Rostalent development, then a single HR solutions platform will be established. Finally, the solution is expected to hit the market for off-the-shelf VK cloud-based HR scenarios and products.
