Seven Step Recruiting Reports 300 Percent Growth in Q1 2011

Avature, Cigna, General Motors, Navistar, and QVC Among Industry Leaders Leveraging Seven Step's Innovative Recruitment Process Outsourcing Services

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2011) - Seven Step Recruiting, a leading provider of outsourced recruitment services, has announced outstanding growth in the first quarter of 2011. The company increased revenue by 300 percent over the same quarter last year. Seven Step added several Fortune 500 companies, including Cigna, Suntrust Bank, and QVC, to its impressive roster of blue-chip corporations that are leveraging its proven recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) services.

"Seven Step's rapid growth is validation of our focus on customers' recruitment objectives and long-term needs," said Paul Harty, president of Seven Step Recruiting. "Using our simple but powerful RPO methodology, we continue to exceed customer expectations and lead the industry in efficiency and effectiveness."

Seven Step helps corporate clients achieve their high-quality, high-speed hiring goals by optimizing, supplementing, or outsourcing their existing recruitment processes. The company has developed an open, collaborative recruitment productivity process that has been tested and refined over time to help clients meet their recruitment goals regardless of complexity or difficulty. With an average time-to-fill rate of only 35 days, which is 25 percent lower than the industry average, Seven Step consistently earns high satisfaction ratings from its clients.

Seven Step Expands Partnership with IBM
A strategic partnership with IBM Human-Capital Management on delivery of RPO services continues to be a strong source of growth. Working with IBM, Seven Step is completing all of General Motors' corporate, engineering, design, and non-union factory worker hires for 2011. As companies decide to reverse workforce reductions from the past few years of recession, Seven Step is in an excellent position to meet the demand to help fill thousands of positions. This year, the company expects to make more than 4,000 hires on behalf of General Motors alone.

Seven Step Ramps Up Hiring to Support Growth
Seven Step projects a 125 percent or greater increase in its total number of hires in the upcoming quarter. To accommodate this level of activity, the company has added 40 key staff members and acquired 16,000 square feet of new office space in Boston's Government Center.

Seven Step Leverages Best Practices HR Technology
The company's commitment to innovation shows in its unprecedented implementation of an integrated recruitment solution, which is being launched by two of the recruitment software industry's most important players. For General Motors, Seven Step has created higher levels of recruitment efficiency and productivity by identifying and deploying a unique integration between Taleo's best-in-class talent management solution and Avature's groundbreaking software-as-a-service human capital management solution.

"As our clients' recruitment needs continue to grow in complexity and volume, there is a strategic imperative to leverage best-in-class technology," continued Harty. "Through our partnership with IBM, we worked with both Taleo and Avature's solutions and saw the substantial benefits of integrating the two for our customers. Together, we created an end-to-end candidate recruiting management solution that is delivering extraordinary results for clients such as General Motors."
