Revolutionary Recruiting Technology From Match-Click Earns Human Resource Executive Magazine's Top HR Product of the Year

Recognized for Disrupting the Recruitment Process, Match-Click Lauded for Aligning Job Postings With Candidate Expectations

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2014) -  Understanding that deep active and passive candidate engagement starts with transparency, Match-Click has developed the first recruiting platform that gives employers the tools to effectively market their job opportunities using social media and rich content. Every job opening posted on the Match-Click platform includes short, informative video clips from the hiring manager and prospective colleagues, humanizing the recruiting process and giving candidates an authentic preview of the work environment and culture. Considered among the best of the best, Match-Click's solution has earned a coveted Top HR Product of 2014 award from Human Resource Executive® magazine.

As video and mobile technologies continue to become the preferred communications methods for today's jobseekers, organizations that still rely on static online job boards and text-only job descriptions are at a serious disadvantage. And with millennials poised to comprise the largest demographic segment of the U.S. labor market in the next few years, employers must find new, effective ways to start conversations with these candidates. The Match-Click platform has reinvented the recruitment process to align with this reality, providing employers with a modern, mobile-friendly strategy for engaging candidates through rich content that conveys corporate culture, previews the job environment and motivates them to apply for the position.

Recognizing how Match-Click reinvents jobseeker engagement, a number of progressive organizations, including Ernst & Young LLP, Cisco, Citrix, SalonCentric and Morgans Hotel Group, already use the solution to find their next great hires.

"At SalonCentric, we recognize the need for best-in-class technology in every aspect of our business, and recruitment is no exception," said Abby Duran, Vice President of Human Resources for the L'Oreal USA subsidiary. "We compete against every other top national employer for the best talent, and the competition is tough and getting tougher. The Match-Click concept is simple yet truly innovative, and we look forward to the advantages this partnership will bring us in identifying and attracting the caliber of individuals our business needs."

"Recruiting is most successful when it is a personal interaction; it should entail real people talking about real jobs and give candidates a true glimpse of the company and its culture," said Maury Hanigan, founder and chief executive officer of Match-Click. "Our solution was designed to facilitate those interactions, enabling employers to engage candidates on a more authentic level and connect with the individuals most interested in working for them."

Hanigan is a proven innovator in the recruiting space, having established and led the highly successful Hanigan Consulting Group for 17 years. Under her leadership, the company advised more than half of the Fortune 500 on their recruitment efforts, helping them create effective high potential recruiting programs. Drawing on this experience, Hanigan launched Match-Click to further revolutionize the recruitment process and change the way employers connect with qualified talent.

"It is a great honor to be selected as a Top HR Product of 2014 by Human Resource Executive and be recognized for the transformation we have brought to the industry," said Hanigan. "As hiring has become more competitive, our solution enables employers to truly stand out in the job market and connect with top candidates on a personal level at the first interaction."

"Human Resource Executive® has been evaluating HR products and conducting this competition for 26 years," explained David Shadovitz, editor of Human Resource Executive. "Our goal has always been to identify products and services that clearly offer value to the HR community while demonstrating innovation. With its robust, easy-to-use recruiting platform, Match-Click enables employers to leverage the power of mobile and video technology to truly engage with today's candidates and transform their recruiting processes for the better."

The Top HR Products of 2014 Awards program recognizes the newest and most innovative human resources products released over the past year. To determine the winners, the editors of Human Resource Executive evaluated submissions and product demonstrations from many leading HR technology vendors. The products were assessed based on their level of innovation, intuitiveness and value added to the HR function, and based on these criteria, Match-Click was selected as a winner. Match-Click will be honored with this distinction on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at the 17th Annual HR Technology Conference & Expo Top HR Products of 2014 Awards Luncheon, taking place at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
