Seven Step Named to 2011 Baker's Dozen of Top RPO Providers

BOSTON, MA — August 18, 2011 — Seven Step Recruiting, a leading provider of outsourced recruitment services (RPO), today announced that HRO Today, the only publication dedicated to covering the outsourced human resources services market, has named Seven Step to its annual Baker’s Dozen ranking of major recruitment process outsourcing firms. The results were based upon a survey completed by more than 600 HR executives who are current buyers of RPO services.

In this year’s survey, more than three hundred RPO providers were rated on the breadth of their service, the size of the programs they manage, performance quality, and the quality of client service provided. Seven Step provides comprehensive RPO services and specializes in outsourced recruitment of high-volume, hard-to-fill positions.

"Reaching the top 13 of midmarket RPO providers validates Seven Step’s innovative team approach to talent acquisition," said Paul Harty, President of Seven Step Recruiting. "We’ve experienced sustainable growth in clients and projects because we deliver cost-effective, measurable recruitment results, and we anticipate a rapid expansion of our business."

"We’re particularly proud of the fact that we’ve achieved this industry recognition so quickly," added Beth Gilfeather, founder and CEO of Seven Step Recruiting. "Since we launched in 2007, Seven Step’s focus has been on generating results far beyond what companies have come to expect in RPO. And while client satisfaction is our most valued reward, it’s gratifying to receive this marketplace distinction — especially as a relatively new player in the space."

"The Baker’s Dozen RPO survey is the industry’s most credible perspective of top RPO firms because it is based on feedback from buyers themselves," said Debbie Bolla, Managing Editor at SharedXpertise, publishers of HRO Today magazine. "The resulting rankings are a trusted way to identify the best RPO provider to meet a company’s talent acquisition needs. We congratulate Seven Step on its breakthrough performance."
