New BountyJobs Release Bridges HR/Headhunter Communication Gap

Enhanced communication capabilities ensure highest-quality candidates for hard-to-fill jobs

BountyJobs, the enterprise vendor management technology powered by the nation’s largest headhunter marketplace, announced two innovations last week that employers say will dramatically simplify the way they communicate with headhunters engaged on their job searches.

“This week we unveiled important new ways for employers to collaborate with the agencies working on their jobs”, said Jerry Aubin, VP Product and Technology at BountyJobs. “Our customers told us that improving communication with agencies helps ensure the best candidates are surfaced and ultimately hired.”

The innovations, included in a major refresh of the technology’s user interface, help recruiting departments more efficiently communicate with headhunters, even when multiple positions are out to multiple agencies at a time. The new Bounty Wall provides an innovative forum for employers to communicate with several headhunters submitting candidates for a specific position. The new Candidate Wall provides a private channel for employers and headhunters to communicate about specific candidates being considered for any role.

“I love the new interface” said Staci Work, Physician Recruiter at Broward Health in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and a user of BountyJobs. “From the moment I logged in, it was simple, clean and easy to use.”

BountyJobs provides companies with a cloud-based vendor management technology that consolidates recruiting vendors and centralizes communications, performance metrics and contracts. If companies have gaps in their vendor list, BountyJobs gives them access to over 10,000 specialized headhunters in the BountyJobs private marketplace. BountyJobs is the agency management solution for more than one-third of the Fortune 500, including US Bank, eBay, Phillips 66, Genentech and Caterpillar. While technology solutions have long existed for companies to recruit candidates directly, BountyJobs is the only technology that gives recruiters an effective way to manage jobs sent to headhunters. A privately held company, BountyJobs is backed by Accel Partners, Greylock Partners, and RPM Ventures. BountyJobs was named to the Inc. 500/5000 list of fastest growing private companies in both 2011 and 2012.
