In 2016, a renewed focus on innovation, the customer and candidate experience and an accelerated investment in staff development will continue to fuel our growth and set the stage for another fantastic year at Cielo.”

Cielo’s exclusive SkyRecruit candidate engagement platform launched to all Cielo client teams in 2015. The only global recruitment technology offered by an RPO provider, SkyRecruit is the core enabler of Cielo’s high-tech and high-touch approach to recruitment. Cielo will continue to make significant investments in the platform in 2016, including expanding its impact on the hiring manager experience.

Further investments in the company’s ability to exceed its clients’ expectations were made in the form of five new members of its senior management team across its territories in 2015. Cielo also invested in a larger office in Singapore to support its growth in the APAC region and established a new European Recruitment Center in Budapest to attract, source and hire quality talent for clients across Europe. Cielo will continue to grow its physical footprint in 2016, formally opening a location in Buenos Aires in response to growing client needs in the Latin America region. Cielo’s global presence entering 2016 includes 1,400 employees, serving 130 clients across 69 countries in 32 languages.

While setting record sales and growth of its high-volume portfolio in 2015, Cielo also maintained high client satisfaction levels across all clients, as illustrated by its top three ranking on the HRO Today magazine’s annual “Baker’s Dozen” list of RPO firms globally and in Europe. Cielo Healthcare was honored to repeat its number one ranking in the Healthcare industry category.

Additionally, Cielo continued its domination of the HRO Today Forum awards, based on real client results, in Europe and North America with regional Best Partnership in Recruiting Excellence recognitions through its work with Dialog and Bristol-Myers Squibb, respectively. 2015 was the third time that Cielo has won the Recruiting Excellence award in Europe, and the fourth consecutive win in North America.
