Burlingame, Calif. – March 6, 2013 – Jobvite, the leading recruiting software platform for the social web, today announced it has been selected as the winner of the WhatWorks® Awards, the research-driven awards program of Bersin, by Deloitte. Jobvite was recognized in the prestigious “Delivering Innovation” category for targeting relevant talent through social networks and improving the candidate experience with next-generation applicant-tracking tools.
The WhatWorks award program uses a selection criteria based on years of in-depth study across all areas of HR, learning, and talent management and is conducted in cooperation with Human Resource Executive® magazine. The award categories run the gamut of how the HR, learning and talent related brands can affect their organizations in positive and measurable ways.
“Implemented in a climate of ongoing market turbulence, winning programs this year focused heavily on business agility, analytics, continuous development, collaboration and change management,” said David Mallon, vice president of research, Bersin by Deloitte. “Among the other themes that emerged were the need to invest in tomorrow’s leaders from within their ranks to combat a worldwide shortage of leadership talent; having a simple, sustainable framework for matching competencies to roles for better talent management; and a need for organizations to mine current and past employee populations to compete for the best talent.”
Jobvite’s breakthrough social recruitment and applicant tracking system, Jobvite Hire, was chosen from hundreds of candidates across a variety of industries, including leaders in business processes, financial services, government, hospitality, information technology and media. Jobvite was honored for demonstrating positive business impact for its customers and delivering innovation. The selection was based on Jobvite’s products leading the industry in the benchmarks of change, initiative, program, and process improvement.
“Jobvite is thrilled to be recognized as a disruptive recruiting platform that leads the industry in helping organizations of all sizes identify and source the best talent,” said Dan Finnigan, CEO, Jobvite. “As the demand for sought-after, highly skilled workers across industries continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, we will continue our single-minded focus on building innovative tools to help recruiters source candidates, quickly and easily.”
In addition, Jobvite and other WhatWorks award winners will be recognized at the Bersin by Deloitte research conference, IMPACT 2013: The Business of Talent, April 22-25.
