Our Story

Founders Rudy Crous and Carl Hartmann created Compono because they inherently believe that an organisation’s sustained competitive advantage will always be the people that work for the business.

A serial entrepreneur, Carl quickly learnt that hiring and nurturing the wrong people can come at a huge cost to growth. Similarly, Rudy’s experience as a corporate psychologist left him frustrated at the cost of bad hiring and career development practices employed by many businesses.

Compono was born out of their shared desire to build end-to-end products and solutions that enhance businesses’ ability to make informed decisions across the employee lifecycle.
