SAN FRANCISCO – October 20, 2016 – SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success Company, today announced that CERN has chosen SmartRecruiters to enhance their hiring processes with the leading recruitment technology of SmartRecruiters’ talent acquisition platform.
At CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research), physicists and engineers from 22 member states are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. CERN, which is home to the Large Hadron Collider, discovered the Higgs Boson and invented the World Wide Web. Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. In looking for a new recruitment platform, CERN’s desire was to transform their complex recruiting process and candidate experience into one representing the brands and values of the organization itself and to free up time for the talent acquisition function to focus on more strategic sourcing and branding initiatives.
“We are pleased to partner with SmartRecruiters in our recruiting journey,” stated Anna Cook, Deputy Head of Talent Acquisition at CERN. “We are looking for the best technicians, engineers, scientists and support functions, and to attract the best, we must be able to offer them a cutting-edge digital and mobile experience. That process at CERN by nature is multi-national and entirely collaborative. In SmartRecruiters, we have a partner which offers what we need with mobile-enabled, flexible processes that provide both a great candidate experience and great hiring team experience out of the box.”
“We are honoured to have such a prestigious organization as CERN join the SmartRecruiters growing family of customers,” said SmartRecruiters’ Founder and CEO Jerome Ternynck. “CERN literally hires the smartest minds in the world and understands that to maintain its competitive edge, it needs to transform its recruiting approach to a cutting-edge one that embraces candidates, engages hiring managers, and provides recruitment professionals with time back to focus on more strategic initiatives. This partnership highlights our European growth trajectory following our expansion to the AWS Frankfurt data center and the opening of our offices in Paris and London.”
SmartRecruiters will be attending HR Tech World in Paris, France, October 25-26, 2016. Stop by booth #204 to meet the team and receive a demo.
