Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 29, 2008 -–
PeopleScout, a leading provider of end-to-end recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) and employee retention solutions, announced that on July 24 it achieved a major industry milestone by facilitating its one millionth full-time employee placement since the firm's inception in 1991.
"PeopleScout is extremely proud that clients have entrusted us to manage the entire spectrum of their talent acquisition programs," said Karen Browne, President of PeopleScout. "We were able to reach this significant landmark – facilitating the hiring of one million full-time employees – due to our focus on client service delivery. Achieving this milestone further validates our RPO business model and demonstrates the confidence that clients have placed in our performance, reliability, and ability to meet their evolving recruitment needs."
The one millionth placement was on behalf of Wells Fargo. "We've been partners with PeopleScout for over five years, during which time they have supported the hiring of tellers and personal bankers," said Sangeeta Doss, Vice President and Recruitment Strategy Consultant for Wells Fargo Regional Banking. "We congratulate PeopleScout on achieving this significant industry milestone and look forward to continued success in our long-term partnership."
In addition to one million full-time hires since 1991, PeopleScout has screened over 14.5 million candidates for positions across a wide variety of skill sets.
"PeopleScout continues to see very strong demand for RPO services despite a softening economy," said Browne. "In fact, more and more companies are looking to RPO as a cost-effective solution for their talent acquisition needs, particularly in light of candidate shortages and tight budgetary constraints."
