BROOKFIELD, WI (June 10, 2024) – Global talent acquisition partner Cielo has again been named a Leader on Everest Group’s Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Services Global PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2024.

Cielo has been in the top quadrant of RPO providers for 12 consecutive years, highlighting its commitment to building transformational partnerships with its clients.

“When we helped create this industry over two decades ago, we didn’t know what place it would take in the larger world of talent. Twelve years in the leader box means we’ve had a hand in shaping the impact RPO can make for our clients and we’re honored to be recognized again for that work,” said Marissa Geist, CEO at Cielo. “We’re always advancing our talent acquisition solutions to adapt to the evolving needs of global businesses. Our clients require flexibility and scalability, and we provide that with our innovative offerings, including the world’s first GenAI for talent acquisition as part of the Digital Accelerators™ suite, and our modular RPO offering, TA Optimizers™. With our expanding products and services, we’re making it easier for clients to reach their hiring goals.”

Throughout 2023’s uncertain talent landscape, Cielo was a trusted partner that delivered creative and scalable strategies to meet its clients’ needs. An investment in industry expertise and rapidly advancing technologies like AI allowed the company to consistently deliver better outcomes and experiences for its clients.

"Cielo's strong domain expertise across key industries such as pharmaceutical and life sciences, healthcare, and manufacturing coupled with its latest launch of agile recruitment products under TA Optimizers has helped Cielo stay in touch with the latest demands from buyers," said Arkadev "Arko" Basak, Partner at Everest Group. "Its continued investments in consulting and advisory services and planned GenAI improvements to Cielo TalentCloud are helping them create a forward-looking value proposition for its clients. All of these have contributed to its positioning as a Leader on Everest Group's Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2024 - Global."

This latest recognition from Everest Group underlines Cielo’s standing as a collaborative and strategic partner to its clients. Other recent achievements include being identified as Leader in all categories of NelsonHall’s 2024 NEAT vendor evaluation for Next Generation RPO; placement on the 2023 HRO Today Baker’s Dozen list as the No. 1 healthcare RPO partner, No. 2 RPO provider worldwide, as well as placings in EMEA & APAC; and multiple other awards for providing exceptional results for clients.
