Red Hat Selects Jobs2web to Power Global Recruitment Strategies

The Most Recognized Open Source Brand in the World Required a Comprehensive, Scalable Platform to Kick-Start Interactive Recruiting

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - May 10, 2010) -  Jobs2web, the leading provider of interactive recruiting solutions, today announced that Red Hat, a leader in enterprise Linux and open source technology, has chosen to utilize Jobs2web's robust Recruitment Marketing Platform™ to attract top talent across a wide spectrum of Web 2.0 recruiting channels.

Red Hat, which has a global human resources team for their 58 offices and 3,100 employees, approached Jobs2web with a variety of initiatives for engaging and retaining candidates in 2010-11. Building a reservoir of talent that could be dipped into quickly was a pressing need, along with carving out a competitive presence on social media and search engines and reinvigorating their employee referral program. Red Hat leaders also wanted to empower their recruiting team by giving them a line of sight into recruitment advertising analytics and metrics that would enable them to demarcate unproductive channels.

With the installation of the Recruitment Marketing Platform, not only do Red Hat recruiters gain visibility into recruiting trends, but they'll also be able to latch on to Web 2.0 communities that are rife with talent. The Recruiting Dashboard™, the nucleus of the platform, will give recruiters and sourcers unprecedented power to reach their new 2010 goal of aligning themselves with overall business initiatives and strategies by keeping costs down and attracting top-tier candidates.

"Open source and collaboration are at the foundation of our business model at Red Hat," said L.J. Brock, Red Hat's Senior Director, Global Talent Acquisition. "We believe that collaboration is not only the best way to build technology, but also the best way to spur innovation. The same philosophy applies to Red Hat Talent Acquisition and our excitement in collaborating with Jobs2web. Red Hat and Jobs2web are industry recognized leaders that are revolutionizing Talent Acquisition together."

"With a technology innovator like Red Hat as a client, Jobs2web can say with confidence that we are the go-to source for interactive recruiting solutions," said Ken Holec, Jobs2web CEO. "Other vendors offer a fraction of what Jobs2web bundles into a single cost-effective package. We look forward to powering Red Hat's recruitment strategies in 2010 and 2011 and to propelling them to a significant advantage over their competitors. "
