Acquisition Combines Findly’s Leading-Edge Recruitment Technology with Hodes’ Award-Winning Employment Branding and Creative Solutions
SAN FRANCISCO (July 16, 2013) – Findly, the social recruiting market leader and a Symphony Technology Group (STG) company, announced today that it has acquired Bernard Hodes Group, the talent communications company, from parent agency Omnicom. The acquisition pairs Findly’s highly innovative, SaaS-based recruitment technology with one of the most respected recruitment advertising agencies, Bernard Hodes Group, enhancing the value the combined companies bring to their more than 2,000 global clients.
With their joint strengths, Findly and Hodes have the opportunity to reimagine and transform a recruiting industry in need of greater innovation and superior service. Findly gains the ability to further scale its offerings and coverage, and improve the creative and campaign elements of its customer deployments, while the acquisition enables Hodes to enhance its technical approach with robust SaaS capability. Clients of both companies benefit from their collective industry thought leadership, strategic partnerships and leading-edge creative, digital and advisory services, all delivered through an unrivaled technology platform.
“We are extremely excited to combine forces with Findly and be a part of this highly innovative company going forward,” said Joe Fortunato, COO of Hodes. “The deep technical capabilities and creativity of Findly complement our existing expertise and leadership in the recruitment field; we will be able to provide our global clients with even stronger capabilities to enhance the way they find, engage and retain top talent.”
“Findly was attracted to Hodes based on the company’s reputation for outstanding client service to industry leaders, award-winning employment branding and creative capabilities and long-held trusted advisor status in the recruitment advertisement field,” said Jeff Russakow, CEO of Findly. “We look forward to leveraging our highly complementary capabilities to expand the breadth of our solutions and deepen the value of the services we provide to our global clients.”
