Cielo, the world’s leading strategic Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) partner, announced that it has received the Service Partner of the Year Service Award from iCIMS. As Cielo marks the one-year anniversary of its acquisition of Talent Function, this honor reflects the impressive scale, strength and expertise of the Technology Consulting Practice.

Cielo uses over 20 different ATS’ in its partnerships, but none more frequently or effectively than iCIMS. As a global implementer of iCIMS, Cielo’s services for client partners range from fully outsourced global recruitment to smaller projects or systems administration of iCIMS. In the past year alone, Cielo has overseen 15 iCIMS implementations in nearly 40 countries through clients and partner projects.

“We learned a decade ago that services powered by leading product and service partnerships, such as the one we have with iCIMS, were the path forward,” said Marissa Geist, Chief Operating Officer at Cielo. “Through our combined experience, this award is a true testament to a partnership that has existed since the beginnings of iCIMS, and the support we’ve committed to each other.”

Cielo is committed to helping clients stay ahead by combining the right strategic partnerships with the strength and scale of its consulting professionals, who collectively bring more than 190 years of experience building hundreds of tech-enabled TA strategies.

“I have overseen dozens of implementations while working in the RPO industry. The critical factor in making our iCIMS implementation a success was bringing in Cielo technology consultants,” said one Cielo client. “They brought a proven methodology that allowed our team to focus on configuration, decision-making, and process development.”

In 2020, Cielo acquired consulting company Talent Function to strengthen its market leadership and expand its service offerings, following a strategic partnership announced earlier that year. Since then, the Technology Consulting team has doubled in size amid growing demand, with 124 new and existing clients looking to transform talent acquisition with comprehensive and forward-looking strategies, leading technologies, best business processes, and smooth deployments. By enabling effective recruitment in a job seeker-driven market where consumer-grade candidate experiences and a winning employer brand are paramount, Cielo remains an industry leader in HR and TA technology.
