Jobvite Helps GlobalEnglish Establish Relationships With Talent Throughout the World

Powers Social Network Referral Hires and Reduces Recruitment Spend

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 27, 2009) - Jobvite, the recruitment technology innovator, today announced that GlobalEnglish, the leading provider of on-demand assessment, learning and support for business English communication, has chosen the Jobvite Hire e-recruitment platform to power its talent acquisition strategy focused on cultivating relationships with top talent throughout the world.

With employees in 22 countries and very specific and hard to find skill sets, GlobalEnglish chose Jobvite to support global growth and to scale the company. GlobalEnglish looks to employee networks to help build relationships with the very best talent in any given field. Jobvite Hire provides GlobalEnglish a unique and practical way to empower employees to refer peers for jobs through social networks.

"At GlobalEnglish, we have a passion for helping organizations and people fulfill their potential and be successful in a global economy. We look for that same passion in prospective employees," said Sheila Madden, Senior Vice President of Talent Management at GlobalEnglish. "This quality cannot be easily found through job postings or creating high volume pipelines of untargeted resumes. Relationship building with the most talented people around the world is the key to our talent acquisition strategy."

"Social networking is core to the success of talent acquisition. An entire generation has grown up using these sites and that isn't going to change," continued Madden. "Jobvite provides a unique value as it helps us to build relationships with prospective candidates using state of the art technology and social networks."

Within ten days of implementing Jobvite Hire, the number of candidates from social networks increased dramatically. Jobvite Hire demonstrated a fast return on investment by providing a way to fill jobs in less time and providing analytic capabilities to immediately see the impact.

"We're pleased to power this innovative, targeted talent acquisition strategy for GlobalEnglish," said Dan Finnigan, President and Chief Executive Officer at Jobvite. "Jobvite extends recruiting reach in employee social networks, making it more practical and cost-effective than ever to target and hire the best candidates for a company's specific needs."
