IDC MarketScape Leader for Worldwide and U.S. Modern Talent Acquisition Suites

IDC MarketScape recognized the Jobvite platform for championing social recruiting and embracing the importance of the candidate experience

SAN MATEO, CA, May 07, 2019 — Jobvite, the leader in best-of-breed recruiting software, has been recognized as a leader in all three IDC MarketScapes for Worldwide and U.S. Modern Talent Acquisition Suites, including Large and Medium Enterprise, and Small to Medium Size Business.

These reports highlight Jobvite’s core products – Jobvite Hire, Engage, and Onboard – which help support the platforms candidate-centric recruiting model and “strategic services that help customers compete for talent from sourcing to onboarding.” Jobvite’s inclusion in the IDC Marketscapes come on the heels of the $200 million majority investment from K1 Investment Management, and the acquisitions of Talemetry, Canvas, and RolePoint.

The IDC MarketScapes evaluated 20 influential talent acquisition vendors, assessing criteria spanning current product offering, global support capabilities, breadth of service, and future roadmap. The three reports named Jobvite a leader in talent acquisition and management, explaining: “Jobvite has focused exclusively on the talent acquisition space for over a decade. The company has spent this time pushing the market forward in meaningful innovation by championing social recruiting early on and embracing the critical importance of candidate experience. It has balanced these innovations with enhancements to the platform that enable the extensibility and configuration that hiring organizations in the midmarket and enterprise require.”

“Among all its competitors in the talent acquisition suite space, only a handful have invested as heavily in strategic services as Jobvite has,” said Lisa Rowan, Report Author and Research Vice President, HR, Talent and Learning Strategies at IDC. “Considering how quickly recruiting is changing lately – and how slowly hiring operations typically adapt – Jobvite’s ability to address both is a clear differentiator.”

“With the recent investment from K1 and acquisitions to expand the Jobvite platform, the IDC MarketScapes recognized that Jobvite continues to set the bar for what a modern talent acquisition suite should look like,” said Matt Singer, VP of Marketing at Jobvite. “We’re incredibly proud to be named a leader in the space for pioneering candidate-centric recruiting tools and strategies.”

The IDC MarketScapes evaluates how talent acquisition suites are advancing beyond ATS, what sets one system apart from another, and how systems compete against end-to-end HCM and talent management suites. The research is based on IDC analysts’ discussions, surveys, and interviews with market leaders, participants, and end users. This rigorous framework is used to determine the scope of vendor characteristics, behavior, and capability within the marketplace.
