SINGAPORE – May 1, 2018 – Cielo (formerly Pinstripe) recently won Gold (highest honor) as Best Recruitment Process Outsourcing Partner at the Asia Recruitment Awards ceremony in Singapore, capping a period of significant investment in the APAC region by the organization.

Driven by increasing demand for its talent acquisition strategies and services, including candidate sourcing and screening, employer branding, and recruiting, Cielo now has teams in 11 countries across APAC – including new expansions in Vietnam, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. These teams support organizations in industries like pharmaceutical and life sciences, construction and chemical.

“Cielo has truly undergone a transformation in APAC, making our mark as a dependable, award-winning RPO partner,” said Paul Daley, Cielo’s Senior Vice President – Asia Pacific. “We are committed to expanding our award-winning abilities and services to help companies throughout the region find, attract, hire, and retain great talent.”

  • Achieved its first-ever placement on the APAC HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen list, earning a Top 5 ranking
  • Been recognized by HR Vendors of the Year 2017 as Best RPO Partner (Silver in Hong Kong, Finalist in Singapore)
  • Opened a delivery center in Manila, the organization’s third in the region after Hong Kong and Singapore
  • More than doubled its team size and number of requisitions filled for clients
  • Added several languages to make available for client service

In another signal of its commitment to the region, Cielo also recently relocated Vice President Will Innes from the UK to Australia to continue to grow the APAC leadership team.

“I’m excited to focus on APAC at such a key time in Cielo’s growth in the region,” Innes said. “I’m joining a high-performing team and look forward to bringing exciting solutions, including a greater emphasis on employer brand services, to our ever-expanding customer base.”
