MATAWAN, N.J., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent studies show that 14.4 million people used social media to find their last job. As recruiters turn to outlets like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn more and more, it's safe to say recruitment advertising has made a major shift in the direction of social media. Organizations that want to get the attention of top talent are dialing up their social recruiting efforts.
iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, has been ahead in the category of automated social recruitment advertising and is proud to announce the company's social distribution product has received a TekTonic award for its technology. At the HRO Today Forum on May 1st, iCIMS received the prestigious TekTonic Award for the iCIMS Social Distribution solution in the Overall Category. Although there is a separate category within the annual award for HR Social Media, iCIMS was named the Overall HR TekTonic Winner.
"It's an amazing achievement," said iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer Susan Vitale. "When you think of the degree of the award, a social recruiting tool winning in the overall category demonstrates that these recruitment channels are critical and that iCIMS is on the cutting edge in this arena."
iCIMS received the TekTonic Award following several other recent third-party recognitions. So far this year, iCIMS made it to the top three spot in HRO Today magazine's "Baker's Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings: Talent Management Software," a coveted customer satisfaction survey, and received the Bronze Stevie® Award for "Customer Service Department of the Year" in the Computer Software category for the successful launch of its new, redesigned iCARE™ Customer Support Site. With a strong commitment to customer service and a passion for soliciting and integrating customer feedback, iCIMS' Social Distribution has been crafted with the user in mind.
"iCIMS Social Distribution edged out the competition for this award because it is a full-featured, yet easy-to-use product that works in alignment with the company's applicant tracking solution, iCIMS Recruit," said Jindrich Liska, Chief Product Strategist, iCIMS Social Distribution, "We feel the product is already leading-edge and are excited to bring new features to market later this year, including additional reporting dashboards, integrated recruitment advertising analytics, mobile capabilities and more."
The annual TekTonic Awards recognize the innovation and disruption in the world of human resources technology. "The automation of this process is game-changing," said Liska, "You can share and send jobs over popular social networks and tap into one of the best social employee referral engines on the market within our product. Through the technology, companies can get high quality and high volume recruitment advertising results for minimal effort and cost."
This honor comes on the heels of a mention on ERE.net of Enterprise Rent-a-Car's successful use of iCIMS Social Distribution. Along with Enterprise, some of the most admired brands in the world, such as GNC, Nuance, and 20th Century Fox, are using iCIMS Social Distribution as a spring board into social recruiting.
