Award judges acclaim Oleeo’s commitment to innovation with intelligent automation and built-in artificial intelligence as key to winning top prize.  

London and New York – September 23, 2019 – Oleeo, the pioneer and innovator in global recruiting technology solutions, has scooped the Gold award in the prestigious Talent Acquisition & Retention Solution Provider of the Year category of the 2019 Stevie® Awards for Great Employers. 

The 2019 (fourth annual) Stevie® Awards for Great Employers is an international competition which recognises the world’s best employers and human resources professionals, teams, achievements, and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work. Solution provider awards were judged by an illustrious panel of 21 international judges including leading recruiters from organizations including FedEx, KPMG LLP, JPMorgan Chase & Co and The Coca-Cola Company.

Oleeo was recognised as the leading nominee in the category for its acclaimed technology which the judges said was unique for being “a single platform that automates talent acquisition processes end to end using single click automation for flexible identification, attraction, engagement and selection workflows.”

Oleeo’s innovative Intelligent Selection offering, a powerful machine learning solution that helps recruiters make better informed decisions in a fraction of the time, was also lauded by the judges. They commented that the “corporate DNA mapping that predicts cultural fit to improve diversity and also reduce bias within the recruitment process is a key differentiator.”

Intelligent Selection lets employers hire even faster based on predictive scoring and prescriptive recommendations that measure skills, cultural fit, offer acceptance probability and probable retention. Used with a company’s existing ATS or as part of the Oleeo ATS platform, Oleeo’s prescriptive analytics solution means recruiters can increase the number of talent sources by approximately 50%, and move candidates from application to interview in just 35 minutes, from application to hire in three days, and from application to rehire in five minutes. The result is a higher performing, more diverse and engaged workforce.

The judging panel remarks: “Helping organisations attract, hire and retain talent is a very core aspect of how they can be successful. One of the core aspects of this is to shorten the overall turnaround time starting with sourcing to onboarding talent. The solution from Oleeo seems to address all core aspects of finding and retaining the right talent for an organisation and also provides the organisation flexibility to focus on delivering to the business and not worry about the talent acquisition and retention challenges. The platform seems to be very innovative and helpful for recruiters to make their jobs easy. The processing time for every cycle of recruitment seems to be improved because of this platform.”

Charles Hipps, CEO & Founder of Oleeo, adds: "We're delighted to win this prestigious award and earn recognition for our commitment to intelligent talent acquisition. We've had great success in 2019 and are proud to be taking home a Gold Stevie that acknowledges our growth in this vital business space."

More than 600 nominations from organisations from 24 nations were evaluated in this year’s competition. Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 60 professionals worldwide, acting as judges.

“In the fourth edition of the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, the judges were impressed by the Stevie winners who dedicate each day to making the lives of their employees and teams better, through training, software, programs, and more. We are pleased to celebrate them in 2019 and look forward to what they will accomplish in 2020,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and executive chairman of the Stevie Awards.
