We doubt there’s anything that does as good of a job [as Overture] in representing the employer, while respecting both the user and the candidate at the same time
Minneapolis, Minn. (PRWEB) October 16, 2007
Employee Continuum, providers of software and job branding services that revolutionize sales qualification and assessment processes, today announced it has been awarded the Human Resource Executive magazine’s 2007 Top Products of the Year Award for its industry-leading product Overture 4.0.
Company founder and CEO Orrin Broberg was presented the award at the 19th Annual Top HR Products awards ceremony on October 10th, during the 10th Anniversary HR Technology Conference & Exposition held at Chicago’s Navy Pier.
"It is quite honor to have earned such a significant award from one of the HR industry’s top magazines and to be presented with it during the world’s largest HR technology conference," said Broberg. "The Employee Continuum team is proud of this acknowledgment of our hard work and considerable achievements."
Overture Version 4.0 is a comprehensive assessment on-demand software solution that helps attract, qualify and identify top sales talent. Overture’s multi-step, multi-dimensional approach includes assessments, job simulations and job branding to deliver significant pre-hire visibility into candidates’ abilities to perform and produce in unique selling environments.
Human Resource Executive magazine Managing Editor Kristen Frasch said in her review of Overture, "no other recruiting product combines job branding and job marketing with candidate assessment quite as well. The video segments are direct and straightforward and the assessments ask questions that only the keenest of sales professionals would know are aimed at measuring sales-specific competencies."
The editors of Human Resource Executive magazine spend hundreds of hours reviewing product demonstrations and conducting research in order to select their picks for the best HR products of the year. Products submitted for consideration are judged on innovation, user-friendliness and the value they add to the HR profession.
"We doubt there’s anything that does as good of a job [as Overture] in representing the employer, while respecting both the user and the candidate at the same time," added Frasch.
