Dec. 21, 2015 — Gild, the company that powers the way companies find, engage, and hire talent with data and intelligence, today announced that it has won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Bronze award for excellence in the Talent Acquisition category.

We’ve come a long way in shifting hiring to a more strategic, insights-driven model, and we plan to continue to drive that move to greater innovation over the coming years.”

“These award-winning solutions were closely evaluated by our judges for not only their innovation, but the real results they brought to the organizations,” Brandon Hall Group Chief Executive Office Mike Cooke said. “That is what makes our technology awards program special – connecting creativity and innovation to direct business results.”
