Captures top prize in the innovative talent management/recruiting category

San Ramon, CA — May 7, 2013 — eQuest’s Big Data for HR service has been honored by HRO Today magazine with this year’s TekTonic award in the Talent Management/Recruiting category. The award, announced today during the HRO Today Forum in Philadelphia, validates eQuest’s assertion of the importance of Big Data and firmly establishes the company as one of the leaders in the use of Big Data for the HR industry.

The TekTonic Awards recognize innovation and disruption in HR software and technology. eQuest demonstrates innovation by using its billion-plus data records to accurately forecast Internet recruitment strategies. Its predictive analytics model enables organizations to make smarter online job advertising decisions — well ahead of competitors who are searching for similar talent.

“Big Data for HR shifts and transforms talent acquisition from a function dependent on hindsight and trial-and-error to one that uses highly accurate forecast capabilities and actionable insights derived from predictive analytics,” said David Bernstein, vice president of eQuest’s Big Data division. “Our service takes the sometimes-overwhelming concept of ‘Big Data’ and zeroes in on the critical task of talent acquisition in a way that’s easy to understand and act on. This award is an encouraging step toward our goal of educating and empowering the HR community regarding the benefits and opportunities that Big Data affords.”

According to Elliot Clark, CEO of HRO Today, “As we have moved from the era of technology to the era of information and data, workforce analytics have become the critical element in the management of HR. eQuest’s approach to Big Data and the reporting capabilities of the platform are not only innovative for what they provide, but for what they do. eQuest’s platform successfully turns data into actionable information without all of the background noise of other analytics products allowing the user to focus on exactly the extracted and analyzed information they want and, for this reason, is innovative enough to be the top product in talent management on the HRO Today Tektonic Award list.”
