New Release of Hodes iQ 6 Fueled Client Growth In 2010 With Companies Wanting a Best-of-Breed Talent Acquisition System

NEW YORK, NY— FEBRUARY 8, 2010 – Employers who need to recruit, retain and engage their workforce increasingly turned to Hodes iQ, Bernard Hodes Group’s award-winning talent acquisition and management solution. Hodes iQ continued to build on its success and closed out 2010 by adding top brand companies like AAA, Southeast Georgia Health System, Amsted Industries, University Hospitals, Carrington Mortgage and several others to its growing list of clientele.

Hodes iQ is ideally suited for companies who wish to have a best-of-breed solution that deeply focuses on the talent acquisition needs of their organization. The number of HR professionals choosing Hodes iQ is an endorsement that many are looking for an overall recruiting strategy partner—along with technology—that often goes beyond software tools to include employment branding, career site development and social media integration.

“Many customers select Hodes iQ for the depth of our HR expertise and the big picture thinking we bring to integrate all of their talent acquisition touch points together,” said Dwaine Maltais, senior vice president, E-Recruiting Solutions. “They weren’t looking for a software solution in a box, but a consultative partner to help them provide the best candidate experience while at the same time arming their recruitment teams with a world-class talent acquisition system.”

Hodes iQ focuses its development efforts on innovations that streamline and improve recruiters’ daily interactions with candidates as well as the reliance on resources a company may need to implement a system. In September, Hodes iQ launched its latest version, Hodes iQ 6, delivering clients a host of additional self-service configuration tools along with new features to further integrate Web 2.0 strategies into their recruitment initiatives.

“Our continued growth is a positive reflection that we are delivering the features and functionality that drive best-in-class talent acquisition processes,” adds Maltais. “Our jobs optimization capability is just one area that sets us apart from the competition by providing innovative ways to communicate with passive candidates in a multitude of channels.”
