With Jobs2web, companies can drive social and mobile recruiting programs across all potential recruiting channels like Bing, Facebook, Google, Indeed, Jigsaw, Juju, LinkedIn, Twitter, Yahoo, Zoominfo, and other communities. Jobs2web works with all major recruiting vendors and ATS systems and will be immediately integrated with SuccessFactors’ Business Execution applications. SuccessFactors will combine its industry leading social, mobile and collaborative recruiting management solution with Jobs2web’s leading recruiting marketing platform to produce a transformational social recruiting engine with dynamic talent communities that minimize cost and maximize quality and speed. This new platform will help companies find the best people, drive more engagement with potential candidates and analyze program effectiveness.

“It was easy for SuccessFactors to pull the trigger on acquiring Jobs2web, despite an extremely competitive acquisition fight for them, because they have so many powerful assets. First, they’re growing incredibly fast. And they are completely disrupting the way companies can make social networks their friends in recruiting and not a distraction, helping hiring managers find people in ways they never could before. Lastly, the analytics dashboards provide quality insights not seen in this industry before,” said Lars Dalgaard, founder and chief executive officer, SuccessFactors. “There are 300 million job searches alone on Google each year, that companies don’t know how to get to, with Jobs2web SuccessFactors can help companies turn resumes into candidates, broadcasting their jobs in all social networks.”

New SuccessFactors Recruiting Execution Platform

The SuccessFactors and Jobs2web recruiting solutions complement each other in that Jobs2web’s recruiting marketing platform drives the process before the candidate application, and SuccessFactors drives everything from application to hire and beyond. Previously, companies had to piece disparate solutions together. Now, companies can leverage a comprehensive Recruiting Execution Platform as part of the SuccessFactors Business Execution Suite (BizX), starting with the modules that suit their needs and expanding as they are ready – all from a single cloud-based vendor.
