I Heard It in the Halls of the ERE Recruiting Conference & Expo

Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 10.33.01 AMHeard and overheard in San Diego yesterday and today:

  • Workday plans to officially launch its recruiting technology system in a multi-city event May 6; seven companies have already been using it
  • A Boston recruiting leader ran the Boston marathon Monday and was at ERE on Tuesday
  • TalentCircles beat out a well-known job board/software company to win the business of ResCare
  • At a fast-growing San Diego company, one recruiting leader is impressed with UltiPro
  • 2014’s Q1 saw SmashFly get its highest quarterly sales
  • Entelo describes day 2
  • From a recruiting leader in the Las Vegas desert: “Our 11th core value is ‘sweat'”
  • PNC (for retail jobs), Target (for corporate jobs), and Chrysler (for engineering and product jobs) are using a little-known company for “pay-per-applicant” ads
  • Avature is close to nailing down a big new customer, one I can’t yet say, but it’s one known as a recruiting-best-practice corporation
  • Mettl is bringing on a big global client too — a very large software multinational
  • And Entelo is starting a little work for AT&T, hoping it expands into something bigger
  • Jibe sees its future in analytics for recruiting departments, not just as a mobile recruiting vendor
