Cielo’s expanded services empower talent acquisition leaders


Leading global talent acquisition (TA) partner Cielo unveils its next generation of targeted products and services to help companies maximize their impact in a fiercely competitive talent market. The product expansions – TA Optimizers™, Consulting, and Search – offer businesses more options to flex and scale their TA processes to continue meeting the demands of a fluctuating economy.

Matt Jones, Chief Product Officer for Cielo, said: “We’re building on almost 20 years of global partnerships that unlock inspiring talent outcomes – always putting the client and candidate first. While enterprise RPO continues to be an important solution, many employers desire a way to enhance key parts of their business strategy without fully outsourcing. The range of our offerings gives TA leaders the advantage of choice: whether they want a transformational RPO partnership, standalone products, or a combination of services to plug in where and when necessary. Winning the best talent requires a unique, evolved approach, and our tech-led services will take clients to the next level of recruitment success.”

Here’s what clients can expect from Cielo’s expanded offerings:

By partnering with Cielo, TA leaders can offload time-consuming inefficiencies and administrative tasks and focus on generating great recruiting experiences.”
