Options Employment Resources Re-Brands Its Recruitment Process Outsourcing Division as "People Science"

More Than 10 Years of Success in Science of RPO Solutions Drives Name Change

TINTON FALLS, NJ--(Marketwire - July 16, 2008) - Options Employment Resources, a leading provider of recruiting, consulting and process management services that deliver significant competitive advantages by enabling customers to attract and recruit top talent, today announced that it has renamed its recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) division People Science.

The new brand identity, first launched at www.people-science.com, reflects the company's depth in the RPO market, as well as its understanding of recruiting and RPO as a science. For the past 10 years, the company has been a pioneer in the relatively new area of RPOs, often serving the role of internal Recruitment Department for its clients. People Science uses its resourcefulness to meet client objectives and ultimately bring success to difficult recruiting endeavors while providing considerable cost savings and valuable data.

As workforce demographics have shifted, organizations' recruiting requirements have become more intense and multifaceted. Reliance on outside firms -- especially those able to deliver comprehensive RPO solutions -- has escalated significantly. The RPO industry alone is predicted to become a $7 billion industry by 2010. Industry experts indicate that outsourced recruitment outcomes are favorable, as companies gain better quality hires, improved time-to-hire and access to expanded talent pools.

People Science's founder and CEO, Christine Nichlos, commented, "Since our inception in 1997, our customers have relied on us to 'break the code' of their most complicated recruiting challenges. As our company grows and the market evolves, renaming our RPO services to People Science makes sense, as it better reflects the value we bring to our customers. We look forward to continuing to solve our clients' most crucial recruiting challenges."

Long before the term came into vogue, People Science was defining and driving the category of recruitment process outsourcing. The company's entry point offering is known as "Engage." Engage enables organizations to prepare for a longer-term RPO relationship by performing a pilot program. It delivers quick relief to pressing recruitment challenges, while setting the foundation for the best practices and business outcomes achievable through People Science. The company's full range of customized RPO offerings includes end-to-end engagements, as well as staff augmentation and project-based RPO services.

Nichlos shared, "Our place among the many facets of RPO is clearly as a problem solver that closes the gap of recruiting inefficiencies. People Science provides full-scale enterprise solutions that follow the recruiting continuum from attracting talent through retaining employees. Our work can be applied to a segment of the employment lifecycle or to a company's entire recruiting effort. In either case, we position our clients in such a way that they are able to attain the best talent and therefore gain a competitive advantage."
