BROOKFIELD, WI – December 27, 2017 – Cielo, the world’s leading strategic Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) partner, won a coveted Brandon Hall Group bronze award for excellence in the Best Advance in Recruitment Process Outsourcing technology category for Cielo TalentCloud, Cielo’s technology suite composed of SkyRecruit, Cielo’s exclusive Candidate Relationship Management (CRM) platform for candidate attraction, sourcing and engagement, SkyAnalytics, Cielo’s approach to data-driven decision making, and SkyLabs, Cielo’s innovation engine.

A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria:

Since launching the first enterprise-wide technology platform in 2008, Cielo has been recognized for being first-to-market with innovations that transform the recruitment profession and industry. Cielo accelerated that momentum in 2017 by launching Cielo TalentCloud.

“At Cielo, we think that technology is only as valuable as the human experience it improves. To future-proof our clients’ organizations, we continually invest in both the right technology and the right people to help us improve the lives of our candidates, hiring managers, talent partners and recruitment teams,” said Adam Godson, Cielo’s Vice President of Technology Solutions.

Along with the launch of Cielo TalentCloud, the firm created a three-year innovation roadmap that highlights the development path for each component. SkyAnalytics and SkyRecruit feature roadmap milestones that will extend each with new features, products and enhancements. SkyLabs features Cielo’s examination and application of completely new technologies to recruiting. In 2018, SkyLabs will be experimenting with artificial intelligence chatbots, machine learning matching, experiential applications, and various types of automation.

“Human capital management is evolving faster than at any time in its history, and it is powered by innovative technology developed and implemented by organizations big and small,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “The technology innovators who won Excellence Awards this year were focused on providing users with a better overall experience. That is what our research says employers want, and our award winners are leading the way.”

Mike Cooke, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon Hall Group, said, “Our technology award winners are truly outstanding and set a high bar for others.
