Buyers reported that PeopleScout is far and away the #1 RPO provider in the 'deal size' category
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 12, 2008
PeopleScout, a leading provider of end-to-end recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) and employee retention solutions, today announced it has been selected as a Top 3 RPO provider in HRO Today Magazine's 2008 Baker's Dozen list of major RPO firms. This is PeopleScout's third consecutive appearance on the highly sought-after Enterprise RPO Baker's Dozen, the most prestigious ranking of companies in the industry. PeopleScout is also one of only five companies to have made the closely watched list in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
The provider rankings were based on confidential surveys completed by 262 HR executives who represented a broad spectrum of RPO buyers. Forty-five RPO providers were rated on three pre-determined indices, each weighted differently, which included the following dimensions: breadth of services, size of the programs managed, and the quality of service provided.
"Buyers reported that PeopleScout is far and away the #1 RPO provider in the 'deal size' category," said Elliot Clark, CEO of Crossing Media Group, which publishes HRO Today Magazine. "Coupled with the #1 deal size ranking, it is particularly impressive that PeopleScout achieved a Top 3 customer satisfaction rating from buyers. PeopleScout demonstrated that it can provide excellent customer service for small engagements as well as those in excess of 10,000 annual hires, involving both exempt and non-exempt skills."
"We are extremely proud and honored to be recognized as one of the Top 3 RPO providers in the industry," said PeopleScout President Karen Browne. "PeopleScout continually strives to consistently meet and exceed our clients' expectations. Achieving this Top 3 Baker's Dozen ranking is especially gratifying to us, given that this year's rating categories were more heavily weighted toward client satisfaction metrics. This industry recognition further validates the success of our customer-centric business model, and our experienced and driven professional team that intensely delivers results. PeopleScout values our clients for their continued partnerships, which have allowed us to deliver world-class service."
The Top 3 Baker's Dozen ranking follows a number of noteworthy PeopleScout highlights: the firm recently reported double-digit sequential quarterly growth, driven largely by several new multi-million dollar client engagements. Additionally, in July PeopleScout achieved a major industry milestone by facilitating its one millionth full-time employee placement since the firm's inception in 1991.
