2013 ERE Recruiting Excellence Award Winners

Screen Shot 2013-03-13 at 10.45.39 PMYou’ve read about the finalists — a mix of healthcare organizations, management consultants, past finalists, new entrants, small firms, and multinationals.

They all took the stage today as the winners of the prestigious ERE Recruiting Excellence Award were announced. Ernst & Young was among the big honorees, taking home multiple honors. Onboarding as a category was a first this year; its winner, Veterans United Home Loans, beat out the well-publicized and quite-impressive-itself H. Bloom. Dell won with a simple, clean site in the career website category.

Sodexo USA’s team was named the department/function of the year in the larger-company category.

    Congratulations. Nice to see the firms honored for quality work. ERE’s awards over the years have provided a real incentive for firms to up their game and armed staffing leaders wanting to improve with the ‘numbers’ they need to defend investing in new ideas.
