SAN FRANCISCO, February 15, 2012 – Jobscience, a leading Talent Relationship Management provider, today announced its recruiting application has won the coveted Brandon Hall Gold Award for Excellence in the Talent Acquisition Technology category.

“Social networking is a game-changer for recruiting and will impact the way entire organizations are built,” said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. “Companies that leverage the social connections of their employees will be the market leaders of the future because of their ability to attract skilled talent while they are passively searching for jobs and engage them before the competition. Our technology solution approaches talent acquisition like customer acquisition and turns recruiting into a marketing exercise. We help our customers create ‘employment brands’ and tap into the leading social networks as well as their internal connections – to create talent pools. These talent pools empower companies to quickly access and acquire the top talent in the market.”

The Jobscience Recruiting application, built on [Force.com](http://www.force.com), leverages customer relationship management (CRM) concepts, workflows, and best practices, which enable companies to gain, retain and grow employees through the full TRM lifecycle for talent optimization. Whether a company is sourcing talent for future growth plans, actively filling open positions, or managing rehires, the CRM approach of creating and managing a pipeline of talent in a searchable and active database is the key to a closed-loop talent strategy that creates a 360 degree view of the employee lifecycle.

“2011 provided us with a unique viewpoint of how organizations are driving business results and performance improvement through technology,” said Mike Cooke, CEO of Brandon Hall Group. “This was the year in which technology providers and their clients have been able to transform the power of mobile, social, talent, learning, sales and marketing technologies, with proven, validated results. Most impressive to our judges was an underlying theme around collaborative relationships, a deep understanding of client needs and how technology can be leveraged to create opportunities and operating efficiencies for organizations of all sizes. I am proud to announce these first-rate solution providers as award winners in the most competitive year yet.”

A panel of veteran, independent senior judges evaluated the entries along with Brandon Hall Group’s industry expert analysts and leadership. The winners are listed at www.brandon-hall.com.
