Small, Mid-Size Companies Choose Accolo #1 On Demand Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Provider
HRO Today Magazine survey confirms Accolo leads RPO industry, provides companies with strategic advantage through recruiting
LARKSPUR, Calif. – Aug. 11, 2008 – Accolo, Inc., an innovator in Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) for small and mid-sized companies, has been named #1 Project/On Demand RPO Provider in HRO Today Magazine‘s annual top-tier survey ranking of major RPO firms. The magazine’s highly regarded recruiting survey results are based on information obtained from 262 HR executives currently utilizing RPO services nationwide. The magazine rated the RPO providers, such as Accolo, on the breadth of their service, the size of the programs they manage and the quality of service provided.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as a World Leader as a result of this survey, which was voted on by small and mid-size customers who realize that their hiring solutions need to be solved differently than in the enterprise space,” said John Younger, CEO, Accolo. “Small and mid-sized companies require a more flexible delivery model, and this recognition is part of a broader trend of small and mid-sized companies looking leverage an outsourced model. Our unique blend of process and technology allows us to support a market segment that has been largely overlooked by other RPO providers.”
Accolo’s clients consistently realize impressive results as they are introduced to the top performers they will ultimately hire in a median of eight days, which is well below company averages.
“Accolo has been a tremendous asset to ICE Energy; we have been delighted with the high quality of candidates that the Accolo team has delivered and never expected that we would find all of these great people so quickly,” said Milton Stockmeyer, CFO, ICE Energy.
“Accolo has been InfoPartners’ secret weapon for years. Their ability to get qualified candidates through the door quickly, coupled with the value of their service, has given us a direct competitive advantage over rival firms,” said Micah Roumasset, CEO and president, InfoPartners.
Accolo has quickly become a leader in the RPO industry by providing its clients with its robust community Career Network, cutting-edge technology, benchmark client support and unparalleled recruitment expertise. The RPO innovator offers a full-service scalable recruiting solution that replaces or compliments the internal recruiting functions for companies in the software and technology, digital media and marketing, engineering and manufacturing, and sustainable enterprise industries.
“Companies want to increase the probability of a good hire and make measurable improvements in hiring effectiveness, but this is nearly impossible in a traditional model,” added Younger. “By systematically treating every job as unique as the person who will fill it, we have proven that Accolo’s is among the most consistent and efficient recruitment methods available.”
