On a Mission to Change the Way Companies Hire, Talent Acquisition Leader Greenhouse Approaches 3,000 Customers
In 2018, Greenhouse helped find nearly 30M new candidates and nurtured more than a quarter of a million hires for its growing base of enterprise, mid-market and SMB customers
Greenhouse, the fastest-growing Talent Acquisition Suite (TAS), today announced a major milestone in the adoption of its TAS. In 2018, Greenhouse helped nearly 3,000 businesses find almost 30 million new candidates and nurtured over 275,000 new hires. The company also surpassed 250 distinct integration partners, cultivating the largest distinct partner integration ecosystem for a talent acquisition suite in the market.
“For growing businesses, the most important resource isn’t data, technology or IP,” said Daniel Chait, CEO & Co-Founder, Greenhouse. “Today, the most valuable asset is talent — an organization’s people. The right talent powers greater growth, performance and innovation. As a result, finding and keeping talent isn’t just an HR concern anymore — it’s a business imperative.”
With the value of hiring exploding, recruiting talent is now more complex and expensive than ever before. What was once the sole domain of HR now involves multiple teams across an organization, with stakeholders collaborating to evaluate candidates. Companies that adapt to this shift will win in attracting the people and skills they need for success. To do that, new technology is required to fundamentally re-engineer the hiring process.
“The way organizations identify, hire and onboard talent has evolved,” said Chait. “Developing the right talent strategies and hiring process to achieve success is critical. As talent acquisition has grown more complex, growing companies must manage it with innovation.”
The talent acquisition technology industry has grown to accommodate today’s recruiting process and the rapidly changing talent landscape. A Talent Acquisition Suite (TAS) applies high-powered technology solutions and deep data to engage and nurture candidates and onboard new hires. A TAS helps companies re-engineer talent acquisition programs to meet new challenges, with data powering every step so the organization can make the most informed decision at the right time.
The demand for talent acquisition technology is surging as growing companies — from enterprise to SMB — grapple with change. Bersin by Deloitte pegs the category at $200 billion and growing. As a result, talent acquisition technology is seeing a dramatic expansion, with new players like Google and Microsoft attempting to enter the market.
“Talent acquisition was once a ‘quiet’ industry, but today we’re seeing a dramatic expansion, with new players and new energy,” added Chait. “As competitors chase a new category, our mission has always been to transform the way companies hire and we will continue to take the lead.”
Greenhouse is the world’s fastest-growing TAS, with nearly 3,000 customers globally. Greenhouse helps organizations like Airbnb, Pinterest, Warby Parker, and Cisco Meraki hire smarter and with greater confidence. In 2018, Greenhouse was used to find almost 30 million candidates and make over 275,000 new hires. As hiring faces a major transformation, Greenhouse is innovating to meet the challenge.
To fuel its innovation, Greenhouse recently raised $50 million, making it one of NYC’s most well-funded tech companies — with over $100 Million in total. New offerings will include advanced data and analytics capabilities, machine learning-powered intelligence and enhancements for our landmark Inclusion product, which scales D&I hiring to address unconscious bias in every stage of the process.
Greenhouse has also appointed its first Chief Marketing Officer, Carin Van Vuuren. As CMO, Van Vuuren will oversee Greenhouse’s expanding marketing operations as the company continues to reinforce its brand and leadership role in the TAS industry. Prior to joining Greenhouse, Van Vuuren was CMO North America at Capgemini Consulting.
“Carin’s experience is extraordinary,” said Chait. “Her expertise in driving brand growth for some of the world’s best-known companies is highly relevant to the opportunities facing Greenhouse.”
Added Van Vuuren: “As the industry talent acquisition experts, Greenhouse addresses the issues that can hamper effective people strategies through intelligent products, analytics and data. I look forward to furthering our position as an innovator and thought leader in the rapidly changing world of work.”
Greenhouse has been recognized for its own approach to talent acquisition, having recently been named to the Inc. 5000 2018 Fastest Growing Companies, Deloitte’s 2018 Fast 500 North America Technology Ranking, and Crain’s New York Business Fast 50.
“We are the best example of our technology’s value,” said Chait. “We use our own TAS to win at hiring and have created an award-winning culture as a result.”
