Head2Head and Jobvite Announce a Strategic Partnership to Improve Canadian Businesses' Recruiting Results

Partnership Unites Recruitment Support and Social Media Integration to Better Source and Hire Talent

TORONTO--(Marketwire - Aug 21, 2012) - Today, Head2Head, one of Toronto's leading recruitment solutions firms for small and mid-sized businesses in Canada, and Jobvite, the leading recruitment platform for the social Web, announced a new partnership to bring the power of social media recruitment to the Canadian market. Through the partnership, Head2Head will now incorporate Jobvite's leading recruiting solutions into their overall recruiting service offerings to their customers throughout Canada.

Head2Head and Jobvite are both committed to the common goal of arming recruitment professionals with the best technology to ensure they have the most efficient and effective recruiting process possible. This partnership combines Jobvite's recruiting solutions that leverage employees' social networks to identify and connect with potential hires, with Head2Head's offering of support services to manage recruitment processes, such as screening resumes and conducting phone interviews that enable companies' internal teams to focus on strategic priorities. The result is a complete recruiting offering giving Canadian businesses the ability to quickly identify, build relationships with, and hire great talent while driving more referral hires and creating a great candidate experience.

"We've seen the amazing results that Jobvite has achieved for many of today's fastest growing companies and we're excited to help bring those same results to the Canadian market," said Paul Dodd, CEO of Head2Head. "Together with Head2Head's recruitment support and services, we believe that Jobvite can help Canadian companies create a significant competitive advantage through their hiring processes."

Many companies are seeking a more strategic approach to sourcing and hiring highly skilled talent in response to ongoing economic trends, as well as forecast shifts in candidate demographics. Jobvite's 2012 Social Recruiting Survey revealed 92% of companies surveyed are using social recruiting to source talent and generate more employee referrals, which is the highest rated source of new hires.

"Jobvite allows companies of all sizes to harness the power of all their employee's social connections to increase employee referrals and tap into a tremendous candidate pool," said Dan Finnigan, CEO of Jobvite. "Our partnership with Head2Head will offer Canadian companies a powerful competitive advantage in the war for talent, as social recruiting increases the quality and quantity of candidates while reducing the cost and time to hire."
