Global talent acquisition and management provider Cielo has formed a talent acquisition partnership with Standard Insurance Company (“The Standard”), a leading provider of financial products and services. Based on the success of an initial pilot program, during which Cielo was engaged to source, screen, and schedule interviews with candidates, The Standard has expanded the partnership with Cielo to a multi-year, company-wide recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) solution. This includes Bridge services where Cielo becomes a concierge for new hires to guide them through the pre-employment process.
“Talent is re-defining today’s business landscape, requiring companies to have a talent strategy that will enable their corporate vision and future success,” says Angela Hills, executive vice president and managing director, North America, at Cielo. “The Standard recognizes this imperative. Through our continued partnership, we will work with their internal team to solve The Standard’s complex talent needs.”
Cielo’s Bridge teams are expert at background verification, reference checking, drug screening and onboarding. Through the use of multiple drug vendors, reference systems and background vendors, the Bridge team provides a high-touch candidate experience while ensuring compliance and mitigating risk. It is also a consultative resource for changes in laws and regulations affecting client industries.
“We need a partner that combines scale and execution with agility and innovation. Cielo not only meets those needs, but exceeds them,” says Gretchen Holloway, director of talent acquisition at The Standard. “Having separate yet equally dedicated teams to help guide us through the entire talent acquisition process is a true differentiator. With Cielo’s partnership, we are confident in our ability to secure the talent required to rise above the competition.”
