HRchitect Tech Vendor News: SilkRoad announced its 2013 SilkRoad Champions

Award Honors Progressive Customers for Dedication to Market Education

SilkRoad, a leading global provider of cloud-based social talent management solutions, today announced its 2013 SilkRoad Champions at the Company’s fourth annual global user conference, SilkRoad Connections. The program recognizes Life Suite® software solutions customers at the leading edge of HR that have served as industry thought leaders and championed SilkRoad’s product innovation.

“Our customers are advancing the HR agenda both at their own companies and on an industry level,” said Edward Vesely, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer, SilkRoad. “Whether educating peers by appearing in industry publications, or serving as a case study that will help other HR professionals implement change and empower their own employees, the experiences and successes of our customers need to be recognized and celebrated. Champions is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for every time a customer goes above and beyond.”

For 2013, SilkRoad named Ulthera, a high-growth med-tech company, as its top SilkRoad Champion. Ulthera’s Vice President of HR, Stacie Mallen, drove the Company’s growth by integrating multiple SilkRoad Life Suite products for talent acquisition and development, including its HeartBeat® HRMS, which provided time savings of at least one hour per hire.

Sharing the knowledge I gained to help other HR professionals understand what’s right for them is rewarding, and being named SilkRoad’s 2013 Champion is icing on the cake.”
