Brandon Hall: Cielo: Moving the Needle in Modern Talent Acquisition

Last week, Cielo hosted industry analysts in conjunction with our annual Talent Rising Summit to celebrate our client successes, learn from industry experts and preview Cielo’s exclusive, global technology platform, SkyRecruit. Kyle Lagunas, Talent Acquisition Analyst at Brandon Hall, described his experiences and interpretations in an article entitled, Cielo: Moving the Needle in Modern Talent Acquisition. While many other recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) companies simply react to the constant changes in the industry, Kyle remarked that “Cielo’s expert team seems to be a step ahead.”

Excerpts from the article:

From a commitment to delivering a positive candidate experience, to expertise in employer brand, Cielo’s trademark “We become you” operating model continues to set the standard for RPO in a modern talent economy. As Founder and CEO Sue Marks pointed out:

“Talent attraction is not just recruiting any more – and it certainly is no longer HR. It’s marketing, branding, SEO, PPC, Big Data, and predictive analytics.”

But while many of us are paying lip service to next practices, Cielo is systematically moving the needle in talent acquisition in three ways:

  • Its commitment to continuous and meaningful innovation
  • Its investment in innovative tools and technologies
  • Its execution and delivery of innovative talent acquisition practices

Each of these is represented in Cielo’s big announcement from the conference: The debut of SkyRecruit – its new cloud-based talent acquisition platform. Designed with recruiters, candidates, and hiring managers in mind, SkyRecruit is 100% mobile (which is great for penetrating emerging markets like Latin America and Asia Pacific). … It’s a powerful compliment to the ATS – and the first of its kind in RPO.
