NelsonHall: Cielo’s Candidate Focus Proves a Differentiator

Cielo was recently featured in an article written by NelsonHall’s Gary Bragar. “Cielo’s Candidate Focus Proves a Differentiator,” touches on Cielo’s candidate-centered Recruitment Process Outsourcing services. Bragar specifically notes Cielo’s Impression Center and Bridge Center, which he sees as differentiators from other industry players.

Excerpts From the Article:

“When candidates call into the Impression Center with an inquiry about a job opportunity with a specific client, they do not know they are speaking with Cielo. For example, Comcast has Cielo recruiters dedicated solely to candidates applying for Comcast jobs. Every client has a specific phone number which connects to Cielo recruiters trained on serving that client.”

“On an average day there are 1,435 client interactions, of which 85% are calls, 13% are email and 2% are live chat. The high percentage of phone calls is an interesting and important statistic given that there is an upward industry trend in usage of live chat, but given the high touch and positive experience candidates have with Cielo recruiters, the vast majority would rather call than chat. The Impression Center is a service clients do not have to pay extra for and is a value-added service.”

“After a candidate is offered a job and accepts, there are pre-employment background and drug screens provided by the Bridge Center. Formerly, recruiters used to perform these screens but then would not have time to follow up with candidates on their status in a timely fashion. Now, upon being offered a job, each candidate gets a welcome call and email with an explanation of the process from the Bridge Center.”

“Per NelsonHall’s latest RPO research, clients’ top vendor selection criterion is recruitment capability, with expectations of high candidate engagement and satisfaction. Hence, it’s easy to understand why Cielo has been successful, growing revenue at ~25% CAAGR since 2011.”
