What is Cloud Recruiting?
a new dawn in bringing science to the art of recruiting
“The concept of Accolo is one that changes the rules. Accolo has looked deeply at the hiring problem from all perspectives, and their combination of technology, process, consulting and systematic relationship building challenges the assumptions about recruiting that most people take as sacrosanct.”
Geoffrey Moore, Author of Crossing the Chasm
Cloud Recruiting Defined
1. The concept of outsourcing recruiting using a data driven, highly predictive process utilizing the collective intelligence of successful hires, the expanded candidate reach of crowd sourcing through known and unknown social connections allowing recruiting capacity to scale on-demand in a highly capital and resource efficient manner leveraging software as a service (SaaS) in a cloud computing model.
Instead of manual, resource intensive techniques of traditional recruiting models, Cloud Recruiting® harnesses the power of today’s networked and socially connected world leveraging the following 3 major concepts:
- Cloud Computing: The provisioning of computing resources (applications, database, storage, network capacity) on demand via a computer network
- Collective Intelligence: The shared or group intelligence that emerges from the collaboration and competition of many individuals and appears in consensus decision making in bacteria, animals, humans and computer networks
- Crowd Sourcing: The act of outsourcing tasks, traditionally performed by an employee or contractor, to an undefined, large group of people or community(s) through an open call
