Spencer is the trusted companion of large enterprises in a wide variety of industries
Spencer is already serving more than 60.000 employees worldwide and has proven benefits for every type of employee in multiple large enterprises. For desk and deskless workers, in both a blue and white collar workforce.
Founded in 2016, Spencer is the result of a close collaboration between Telenet & November Five. November Five took on Telenet’s innovation challenge to elevate the employee experience and assist the Telenet workforce throughout a maze of tools. In 2016, an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) was launched at Telenet.
Today, Spencer is a strong product company with a team of 35 people and 3 offices – our Antwerp HQ and offices in Germany & The Netherlands. Our partner ecosystem enables us to market, build & integrate the Spencer product for clients worldwide. We aspire to extend our product and partnership ecosystem to serve companies of all sizes.

Spencer is officially launched as an independent company in December 2016, a November Five Venture. It’s positioned as the go-to solution for employee productivity & engagement in large enterprises facing constant transformation and a complex IT ecosystem.
