PeopleScout and PeopleScout President Taryn Owen both won top honors in The 16th Annual American Business Awards® program. PeopleScout won Silver in the Company of the Year – Business & Professional Services – Large category. Owen won Gold for Executive of the Year – Business & Professional Services.
“We are honored to receive this recognition for embracing a culture of innovation that enables us to provide strategic solutions and world class service to our clients in a time of rapid change in talent acquisition,” said PeopleScout President Taryn Owen. “We are committed to helping our clients elevate their talent acquisition capabilities and to continuing to enhance our technology and service offering to anticipate future needs.”
The American Business Awards recognized Owen and PeopleScout for innovation in response to shifts in the talent acquisition landscape. This includes the launch of the company’s Affinix™ talent technology platform and the significant expansion of both its global delivery capabilities and service portfolio to include global Managed Service Provider (MSP) and total workforce solutions. In 2017, the company connected more than 300,000 job seekers with full-time employment and was named the largest RPO provider in the world by industry analyst Everest Group.
Affinix, PeopleScout’s industry-disrupting, proprietary talent technology platform, has received praise from key industry analysts and was honored with a 2018 TekTonic award for candidate experience by HRO Today Magazine. Affinix is a mobile-first, cloud-based platform that helps PeopleScout clients connect with the best talent faster through a personalized candidate experience that mimics the simplicity and usability of the best consumer websites.
“I’d like to thank our clients, executive team and the people of PeopleScout for championing the initiatives that drive our success,” said Owen. “This recognition would not be possible without their dedication to elevating talent acquisition and willingness to embrace change.”
PeopleScout’s momentum continues in 2018.
