BOSTON, May 17, 2022 – Sevenstep, a global leader in total talent outsourcing solutions, announced that it was named a “Major Contender” for the tenth year in Everest Group’s 2022 PEAK Matrix® Assessment of RPO Service Providers.

Top-rated service delivery and innovation are central to Sevenstep’s status, making it poised for further growth and advancement as customers embrace the growing challenges within talent acquisition and contingent workforce engagement.
