Sevenstep Earns “Major Contender” Position in Everest Group’s 2021 PEAK Matrix® Assessment of RPO Service Providers

Boston, April 19, 2021 – 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), was named a “Major Contender” in Everest Group’s 2021 PEAK Matrix®  Assessment of RPO Service Providers.

The PEAK Matrix™ provides an objective, data-driven assessment of service and technology providers based on overall capability and market impact across different global services markets. Providers are assessed on seven areas – market adoption, portfolio mix, value delivered, vision and strategy, scope of services offered, innovation and investments, and delivery footprint. They are classified as Leaders, Major Contenders or Aspirants.

Highlights of Everest Group’s assessment of Sevenstep on the 2021 PEAK Matrix®  include:

  • Sevenstep serves clients across all major industries, and it has an especially strong track record of hiring healthcare professionals.
  • Sevenstep has a strong pedigree in managing white-collar hiring.
  • Sevenstep takes a high touch, personalized approach to service delivery with a focus on improving the user experience throughout the process.
  • Sevenstep clients appreciate its flexibility, service delivery, and stakeholder management.

“Sevenstep's diverse industry portfolio and focused investments in improving its technology offering, particularly its proprietary Sevayo Talent AI® and Sevayo™ Insights platforms, has helped it create a strong RPO service offering for clients. Its investments in new areas such as DE&I reporting and internal mobility will enable a sustainable advantage in the long run for the firm," said Arkadev Basak, Vice President, Everest Group. “This differentiation helped to position the firm as a Major Contender on Everest Group's RPO PEAK Matrix® 2021.”

2021 marks the fifth year Sevenstep has earned the Major Contender position in the Everest Group PEAK Matrix®  Assessment of RPO Service Providers.

“The volatility of 2020 only strengthened our position on what successful RPO means, and that is partnership, trust and agility.
