Sevenstep Recognized as a Major Contender on the Everest Group RPO PEAK Matrix for the Eleventh Year

Boston – July 17, 2023 – Sevenstep, a global talent solutions leader, announced that it was named a "Major Contender" for the eleventh consecutive year in Everest Group's 2023 PEAK Matrix® Assessment of RPO Service Providers.

Everest Group, a leading research firm covering all facets of business process outsourcing, including RPO, developed its PEAK Matrix® framework to assess the market success, vision and overall delivery capability of global service providers. The annual RPO landscape study evaluates providers on seven dimensions: market adoption, portfolio mix, value delivered, vision and strategy, scope of services, innovation and investments and delivery footprint. Sevenstep's growth and influence in a highly competitive RPO market reflects a consistently high rating for value delivered, the strength of its proprietary Sevayo® Insights talent analytics platform, and its record of success in hard-to-fill hiring across key industries, including technology and healthcare. The Talent Unbounded® offering is built on a best-practice assessment process aligned with an array of services and capabilities uniquely suited to an organization's needs, whether it seeks a snapshot of a particular issue or a full assessment and resources to drive a holistic talent strategy. The assessment pinpoints gaps and opportunities for improvement and is complemented by an action plan, implementation and support, and optional partnership to support new talent needs. 

In its assessment, Everest Group noted:

  • "[Sevenstep] has a strong pedigree in sourcing skilled, white-collar talent (especially IT professionals and healthcare workers)
  • "Sevayo Insights, its business intelligence platform, provides extensive dashboards on program performance and offers forecasting and predictive and prescriptive capabilities."
  • "Buyers appreciate its partnership-based and consultative approach to RPO."

"Sevenstep's presence on the Everest Group PEAK Matrix over the past eleven years highlights our commitment to innovation and the high value we deliver to clients through changing business conditions," said Sevenstep President Amy Bush. "Through our investment in our people, our Sevayo Insights predictive workforce intelligence platform, and our commitment to innovation, we are positioning clients to succeed against the challenging demands of today's rapidly changing business and talent landscape."

"Sevenstep continues to have a significant presence in North America with its diverse client portfolio spanning industries and strong expertise in skilled white-collar hiring. It is also branching out its capabilities in pockets across Europe as it expands its geographic footprint," said Arkadev Basak, Partner, Everest Group. "With a focus on developing a tech-enabled solution, it continues to invest in its Sevayo platform to further augment its capabilities. Sevenstep has been positioned as a Major Contender in Everest Group's Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2023 - Global, North America, and EMEA."
