Agreement with leading university and medical center system extends Deploy’s leadership in higher education and healthcare.

Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn. has selected Deploy Solutions’ Enterprise Talent Suite to provide recruiting, hiring, and retention solutions for its entire university and medical center. Vanderbilt will use Deploy’s salaried and hourly solutions to manage the recruiting process, which averages more than 100,000 applicants and more than 10,000 hires/transfers per year. This agreement comes on the heels of University of Michigan’s selection of Deploy as their talent management solution.

Founded in 1873, Vanderbilt University is a private comprehensive teaching and research university including 10 schools and a full service medical center with more than 2,200 full-time faculty and nearly 20,000 employees in all. Vanderbilt was recently ranked fifth among the “Best Places to Work in Academia” by The Scientist magazine. Deploy's solutions are expected to deliver the university an enhanced candidate experience, increase the number of qualified applicants, reduce time-to-fill positions, and provide immediate access to a pool of candidates for hiring managers using Deploy’s robust search capabilities. Vanderbilt employs a centralized recruiting process and recently completed a major overhaul of their entire HR process.

“We needed a product that was flexible and powerful enough to handle the disparate needs of both our educational institution and our medical center under a single roof, and our due diligence concluded that Deploy was clearly the expert in that domain,” said Kevin A. Myatt, Associate Vice Chancellor / Chief Human Resource Officer at Vanderbilt University. “The Deploy solution is an ideal fit for our university-wide HR process automation initiative.”

“Universities with a comprehensive healthcare delivery system are increasingly realizing the benefits of talent management systems to advance one of their most critical assets – knowledge and talent,” explained Nicole Stata, president and CEO of Deploy Solutions. “Working with Advocate Healthcare, University of Michigan and others, Deploy has developed its expertise in healthcare and higher education. Our expertise will continue to expand with the opportunity to add Vanderbilt to our list of growing clients in these market segments."
