Cielo Transforms Pre-Employment Experience through Bridge Solution

-- RPO Leader Improves Talent Acquisition Process with Candidate Concierge Service --

LONDON, UK – 19 October 2015 – Cielo, the world’s leading independent provider of Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) solutions, today formally announces the continued success of its European pre-employment service, Bridge, with the completion of its 3,000 transaction.

When a candidate accepts an offer of employment from one of Cielo’s clients, a Cielo Bridge Agent becomes their single point of contact through the pre-employment process. The Bridge team ensures a smooth and efficient pre-employment experience for Cielo’s RPO clients, with the candidate at the centre. The solution is fully customisable to brand, location and regulatory requirements.

Bridge Agents are experts in background verification, reference checking, drug screening and on-boarding. A benefit to hiring managers and human resources leaders, their clearly defined approach ensures compliance, mitigates risk and ensures a high-touch candidate experience. The Bridge team also brings the added benefit of allowing the client’s dedicated recruitment team to focus on attracting, sourcing and aiding hiring managers in choosing the right talent.

Seb O’Connell, Vice President and Managing Director for Europe at Cielo, comments:

“Cielo is committed to ensuring the talent acquisition process is as efficient and thorough as possible when working in true partnership with our clients. We know that the time lapse between an offer being made and the employee’s first day is critical. Organisations often lose top talent during this period if the process is not managed correctly. We developed Bridge with this client challenge in mind and means we can now ensure new employees are engaged and excited to start in new roles as productive members of the team.”
