“Business leaders know that great people drive great business results. But, too many of those same leaders accept the status quo instead of demanding the transformation of their talent acquisition function into a sustainable competitive advantage. We’re in business to change that,” said Sue Marks, CEO of Cielo. “We appreciate that Everest Group, and their peers in the analyst community, continue to recognize our ability to create customized solutions that deliver real business results for our clients across the globe.”

Everest Group’s annual PEAK Matrix report evaluated 21 established Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) service providers based on the absolute as well as relative year-on-year movement for specific criteria, including market success, scale, scope, technology capability, delivery footprint and buyer satisfaction. The providers were then categorized into three categories: Leaders, Major Contenders and Aspirants. Leaders, like Cielo, ranked in the 75th percentile for both market success and RPO delivery capability.

“Our assessment shows that Cielo is able to leverage its consultative approach, multi-country capabilities, and appropriate investment in technology and innovation to create value for its clients,” said Arkadev Basak, Practice Director, Everest Group. “This is helping it achieve significant market success while positioning well for future.”
