Global businesses & Govt select Taleo's solution
Taleo Corporation announced that strategic businesses around the globe selected its software solutions in 2009 to pinpoint their best potential performers in order to better compete, innovate and grow. Taleo's customers cross all geographies and business sectors and include business and government organizations, including four of the top five health insurance providers, four of the top ten retail organizations and seven of the top ten financial services firms.
Among the additions to Taleo's global customer list in the first three quarters of 2009 were: Aaron Rents, Inc., Batesville Casket Company, Bristow Group, Inc., Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation, Healthways, Inc., Hitachi Data Systems, Itron, Inc., L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc., Lifespan, Inc., Major League Baseball, McAfee, Inc., MTV, New South Wales Government, N.E.W. Customer Service Company and SkyMall.
These organizations selected Taleo to address their increasingly stringent recruitment needs, while driving efficiencies and cost reduction in the traditionally time intensive recruitment process. Taleo provides them with best-in-class technology, proven global implementation and support experience and deep domain expertise.
For example, Taleo was recently appointed to support end-to-end recruitment for the New South Wales Government, one of Australia's largest employers. The decision was based on Taleo's proven track record with organizations of similar size and complexity. Taleo is helping the Government build and manage its talent pool, as well as measure and improve the talent acquisition processes. Taleo Recruiting will facilitate improvement in the speed and efficiency of the New South Wales Government recruitment process and enable greater control and visibility in sourcing quality candidates in a competitive Australian market.
In a 2009 global survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers, 97% of CEOs cited finding and retaining the right employees as the top strategic advantage in moving their businesses forward. Indeed, market leaders choose Taleo to improve workforce quality, increase engagement and retention, and optimize the flow of talent into and throughout their organizations. By implementing Taleo's on-demand solutions, companies can automate workforce management processes, accelerate time to productivity and align talent management initiatives to business objectives.
"While job statistics might lead to the conclusion that recruiting is not important in this market, that assumption is absolutely incorrect," said Michael Gregoire, Chairman and CEO of Taleo. "In fact, strategic companies, turn to best-in-class software solutions to ensure that when they hire, they do it with a laser focus on skills, perspective and potential to drive their business success. Just as they cannot afford 'good enough' employees, nor can they afford 'good enough' technology to support such crucial decisions."
Celebrating its 10th year in business, Taleo is the industry pioneer and leader in online recruiting. Taleo Recruiting is part of Taleo's recently launched Talent Management solution, Taleo 10.
