Accolo Career Network Reaches 1,000,000 Professionals

Leading Recruitment Process Outsourcer now provides partners access to one of the most robust referral networks available.

LARKSPUR, Calif. – Sep 2, 2008 – Accolo, an innovator in Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) for small and mid-sized companies, announced today that the company’s Career Network has surpassed the one million mark.

Partners of Accolo now have access to one of the most robust candidate pipelining and referral networks available—access not normally available to small and mid-sized businesses. “By aggregating the collective network from all of its hiring efforts, Accolo has figured out how to provide its clients with a level of reach that exceeds that available to even the largest companies, not to mention the SME market,” says David Teten, Co-Managing Director of Evalueserve Circle of Experts and author of The Virtual Handshake: Opening Doors and Closing Deals Online. “The recruiting industry has been trying to crack the code on candidate pipelining and generating referrals into passive candidates for years, and it looks like Accolo may have figured it out.”

“While Metcalf’s Law tells us that the size of our network is important, we think the automation and efficiency in how we leverage our network is a key differentiator,” emphasizes John Younger, Accolo’s CEO. “What matters in the end are results, and there are few recruiting solutions that deliver the candidate that is hired in a median of 8 days or less.”

Accolo’s proprietary Referral Source Engine™ determines the members of the Career Network most likely to know the right person for an open job and solicits referrals. All of the outreach and tracking is automated, leaving more time for Accolo’s team of Hiring Consultants to focus on the art of recruiting. To date, outreach to the Career Network has generated over 20,000 documented referrals to candidates and serves as the number one single source of hires for Accolo clients.
