BURLINGAME – September 16, 2010 – Jobvite, creator of next-generation recruitment solutions, today announced that Jobvite Source, the innovative social recruiting application, has been selected as a Top HR Product of the year by Human Resource Executive.
Jobvite Source is a social sourcing and candidate relationship management application used by companies to find talent through employee referrals, social networks or anywhere online. The Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product makes it practical and efficient for any company to find and engage high quality talent on the open, social Web.
Hiring through social networks has rapidly become a key hiring strategy for growing companies: the Jobvite Social Recruiting Survey 2010 shows that almost half of companies plan to increase investment in social recruiting this year while only 17% will increase spending on job boards. With the most comprehensive set of social recruiting technologies available, Jobvite Source provides the easiest, more effective way for companies to harness the exponential power of the social Web in targeting the right talent for their open jobs.
“We’re very proud to accept this award from Human Resource Executive,“ said Dan Finnigan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jobvite. “Jobvite Source demonstrates our commitment to innovations that produce results for employers. It’s a cost-effective, comprehensive social recruiting platform that can be up and running in minimal time with virtually no set up. Many of the most innovative, fastest growing companies use our social recruiting technology to find the best hires.“
Human Resource Executive’s list of top HR products represents the very best products introduced to the market in the last year. Criteria for the award included level of product innovation, value added to the HR function, ease of use and delivery on product promise. Jobvite Source has also been selected for an onstage demonstration during the “Awesome New Technologies for HR“ general session at the HR Technologies Conference and Expo.
“This award highlights products that innovate to make HR’s job easier – and Jobvite Source clearly does that,“ said David Shadovitz, editor-in-chief, Human Resource Executive. “Editors of Human Resource Executive magazine have reviewed countless products and we consider Jobvite Source to be a practical innovation for companies that want to get results using social networks for hiring.“
