September 10, 2018

Corporate Vision Magazine has named Oleeo as the winner of the Best Recruitment Platform prize of the Executive Search and Recruitment Awards 2018.

The awards celebrate a truly dynamic industry and aim to shine a spotlight on those at the top of their game, enabling professionals to attract the best talent available.

Discussing the success of their winners, Nathan Angell, Awards Coordinator commented: “The recruitment industry can often be one the first targets when governments and industry leaders stress about productivity levels, the skills of their employees and candidates, and economic output. As such, it is more important than ever to recognise and reward the leading lights in the industry, and I am proud to do so through this prestigious awards programme. Congratulations to all of my winners and good luck for the future.”

The awards were held to celebrate the ways in which recruitment has changed with Oleeo acclaimed for its innovation approach in recognising that "Compared to just a few years ago, candidates now have far more power during the job search. Referrals are now critical to the ability to place new candidates. Referrals from existing candidates is the single best source of talent this past year. According to research the current job market is 90% candidate driven. This means you don’t pick talent anymore. Talent picks you."

Charles Hipps, CEO of Oleeo, said: "We are thrilled to recieve this award. The fact is that not understanding career aspiration and then not meeting expectation is where the process is galling down and it is where the horror stories of businesses not achieving retention rates derive from."
