As a Philadelphia resident, it’s really cool to see Philly-based companies thriving in the Talent Acquisition world.
This “Tuned-In Tuesday” focuses on a company boasting an all-encompassing HR technology platform, with hopes to make big waves in the Philadelphia and beyond Recruiting scene—a company called gr8 People.
Founded by Diane Smith, who also created Virtual Edge in 1998, gr8 People’s software-as-a-service platform combines all HR processes in the same space, and hopes to reach high-volume RPOs as clients, instead of seeking out individual organizations. This allows for a small company like gr8 People to have well-rounded and more frequent exposure to different clients, instead of just a couple at a time.
Aon, Randstad Sourceright, and ManpowerGroup are all RPOs in gr8 People’s headlights. All three are award-winning companies in Recruitment Outsourcing excellence; there is no surprise that a tech company like gr8 People is pushing to work with any of them.
Like gr8 People, Aspen Advisors has gone through a change in sales proposition as we transitioned from large, individual organizations to international RPOs. It is not a slow change, but one that is necessary once a company realizes its unique selling potential.
I am excited to see what this Philadelphia company has in store for the TA community both in the city of brotherly love, and outside.
