Achieve Partners, a private equity investor, has acquired Helios Consulting, a certified Workday Advisory partner helping employers streamline human capital management.

Following the deal, Achieve will expand the firm’s Rise program, providing recent college graduates and early-career professionals to become Workday Pro Certified professionals. The deal advances Achieve’s Workforce Fund concentrated on building apprenticeship programs.

“Workday has become the dominant platform for human resources and is one of the fastest growing SaaS ecosystems. While there are tens of thousands of open, unfilled jobs for Workday Pro Certified consultants, before Helios launched Rise there was no clear pathway to working in Workday,” said Ryan Craig, managing director of Achieve Partners. “Achieve is excited to partner with Helios to scale Rise and help launch thousands of Workday careers.”
