HOLMDEL, N.J., Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --iCIMS, the leading talent cloud that empowers employers to attract, engage, hire, and advance the world's best talent, was recognized with the premier industry award, "Top HR Product of the Year," for its workplace collaboration integration into Microsoft Teams and Outlook. This is the third consecutive year that iCIMS has been recognized for its new, innovative solutions by the HR Technology Conference & Exposition and Human Resource Executive.
The award program recognizes the iCIMS and Microsoft integration as a leading-edge technology that is disrupting the HR space and accelerating virtual hiring by improving how recruiters, managers, and candidates communicate. iCIMS was selected not only for its innovation, but for the value that this industry-leading partnership adds to businesses that are rethinking how their remote teams can better work together to find and hire top talent.
"In today's workplace, there is an undeniable need for technology that supports a strong digital collaboration experience," said Michael Wilczak, chief strategy officer of iCIMS. "This partnership is based on a shared desire to transform the workplace, reinvent the hiring team experience, and better embed HR into the flow of work. Uniting the communication and collaboration capabilities of Microsoft's apps with the power of the iCIMS Talent Cloud accelerates hiring and enables employers to fill open roles faster and with fewer hurdles."
The workplace collaboration integration simplifies how recruiters and hiring teams work together. By connecting iCIMS and Microsoft, recruiters can do everything from the business collaboration platform that they rely on daily and:
Save time by automating interview scheduling and receive instant feedback within Teams without having to manually request that information from hiring managers and interviewers.
Improve the candidate experience by empowering job seekers with self-scheduling capabilities based on the hiring team's Outlook calendar availability.
Drive productivity between internal team members by enabling collaboration within Teams, to better integrate HR into their flow of work.
