RecruitLoop Wins Best Business Innovation Award

Less than 18 months after its launch, RecruitLoop ( received the award for 'Best Business Innovation' at the 2012 Recruitment Excellence Awards.

'We were recognized for bringing an entirely fresh approach to recruitment', said Michael Overell, RecruitLoop Cofounder and CEO. 'Our network of independent recruiters help employers with as much or little of the recruitment process as required while charging an hourly rate for the time they work. And our recorded video interview platform has helped recruiters and employers save thousands of hours in the recruitment process'.

Profiling some of the most creative operators and organizations, the award shone the spotlight on businesses with a focus on innovation.

'Since we launched we've been completely focused on innovation in order to give businesses a smarter way to hire', explains Paul Slezak, RecruitLoop Cofounder and Head of Community and Client Service. 'I have been in the industry for nearly 20 years and it was clear that employers needed an alternative recruitment model. The fact that ours can save them up to 80% in fees is an added bonus'.

Today RecruitLoop provides businesses with the first curetted network of over 50 highly experienced, independent recruiters. RecruitLoop's technology platform allows a recruiter to create a candidate profile, upload a bespoke video interview questionnaire, and invite a candidate to take part in a video interview in just three clicks.

'We expect our innovative video interview technology to become a standard part of the recruitment process in the coming years', concludes Overell.

As the first independent business-focused awards in the recruitment industry, the Recruitment Excellence Awards were launched in 2008 to acknowledge excellence, innovation and professionalism in the recruitment industry.
