Sevenstep Again Named “a Leader” in All Categories of NelsonHall's Annual NEAT Vendor Evaluation for RPO

Boston, October 28, 2020 – Sevenstep, a global leader in total talent outsourcing solutions, including product offerings for recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) and managed service provider contingent workforce programs (MSP), today announced it has once again been positioned as a leader in every category of NelsonHall’s vendor evaluation for recruitment process outsourcing (RPO).  

The NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation and Assessment Tool (NEAT) analyzes the performance of vendors offering RPO services, allowing strategic sourcing managers to assess the capability of vendors across a range of criteria and business situations and identify the best performing vendors overall. Sevenstep ranked as a leader in every category, including Overall, Candidate Experience, Geographic Footprint and Scalability, Services Delivery Innovation, Technology Innovation, and, new this year, TA Transformation Journey, which Sevenstep also ranked as a leader.

“This year, Sevenstep expanded on their actionable intelligence capabilities with the release of Sevayo, including its proprietary analytics component, Insights. Given the talent market as a result of COVID-19, data, analytics and reporting, for the purposes of both talent acquisition and procurement, will only continue to become more important as organizations strive to find the right balance of contingent and full-time resources. Sevenstep are a leader in this regard,” said Nikki Edwards, Principal HR Research Analyst at NelsonHall.

To achieve this distinguished recognition, Sevenstep participated in an evaluation process that involved assessments by current clients and an analysis of over 100 industry benchmarks for delivering best-in-class RPO services.

 “It is an honor to be recognized by NelsonHall as a leader in business-critical categories like TA transformation and technology innovation, as these are also key sources of measurement we use to define our own success,” said Amy Bush, President, Sevenstep. “We have built our teams, technology and services to be highly dynamic and responsive, but 2020 tested even the most agile models. I am proud of the products and people we have developed and of their performance this year. We will continue to push the envelope in RPO delivery and challenge ourselves and our clients as we all navigate the new normal.”
