Seven Step Recruiting Reaches Key Milestones With More Than 14,000 Hires Made to Date and a Strengthened IBM Partnership

Projected Headcount for the Company Expected to Double

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - Seven Step Recruiting, a leading provider of outsourced recruitment services, today announced it has reached several critical milestones as it begins 2011. Specifically, the company made more than 6,000 hires for clients in 2010 bringing the total to more than 14,000 hires to date, while continuing to drive remarkably high client satisfaction rates from clients; and becoming a preferred partner for IBM Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) solutions. 

"During a difficult economic climate, we are witnessing more than double digit growth of headcount and continuing to build momentum within the RPO arena," said Beth Gilfeather, Founder and CEO of Seven Step. "We believe our unique recruitment approach has been the key to our success since our inception and was especially effective during the last year."

Seven Step is helping companies simplify complex hiring issues to achieve their talent acquisition goals by optimizing, supplementing and fortifying their existing recruitment processes. The company utilizes an open, collaborative recruitment approach and is named after the company's seven step methodology for high volume, high speed recruiting. The company has seen an average time-to-fill rate of only 35 days -- which is 25% lower than the industry average, helping to earn consistently high satisfaction ratings from its clients. 

Earlier this year, Seven Step was formally named IBM's preferred RPO partner after helping the company's Human-Capital Management unit to staff and fill more than 9,000 open positions for a Fortune 100 insurance company. The partnership has continued to gain momentum with new joint clients secured and many additional hires continuing to be made. 

"Seven Step has provided a strategic approach for global Recruitment Process Outsourcing at IBM," offered Daniel White, Global Process Leader, RPO for IBM Global Process Services. "We are now better able to offer our clients visibility into their global talent pools and reduce recruitment cycle times because of them."
