Pinstripe, Inc. Uses 2012 Record Growth as Opportunity to Partner with Make-A-Wish Wisconsin

  
  
  

Nation’s Leading Pure-Play RPO Provider Believes Talent is the Power to Make a Wish Come True

BROOKFIELD, WI – February 7, 2013 – Pinstripe, Inc., the nation’s leading pure-play recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) provider, on Tuesday presented a check to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin for the entire amount necessary to grant a child’s wish – a trip to Disney World for his entire family. The donation was raised as internal client teams met and exceeded annual performance goals.

“The way our employees rallied behind our Talent is the Power to Make a Wish Come True campaign is further proof that our success is not just based on what we do, but how we do it,” commented Pinstripe CEO Sue Marks. “As some organizations experience rapid growth they lose the entrepreneurial culture that made them a great partner and great place to work.  We continue to be ‘more like Pinstripe and not like anyone else’ while remaining true to our Vision and Values.”

The announcement of the successful Make-A-Wish initiative also featured news of record-setting growth, client retention and strategic investments during 2012, including a successful equity partnership with Accel-KKR, a leading private equity firm. The year continued with Pinstripe’s trajectory of increasing the number, size and complexity of client relationships, reinforcing that the market is clearly taking notice of and finding value in Pinstripe’s customized approach to partnering with HR leaders to create business impact through innovative talent acquisition practices.

In addition, Pinstripe continues to be recognized for its high level of customer satisfaction and the results they provide as proven by the number of prominent industry accolades it received in the past year. Pinstripe was included on HRO Today magazine’s “Baker’s Dozen” list for the fifth consecutive year, including being ranked first in the Size of Deal and Breadth of Service categories, and was identified as a 2012 RPO Star Performer in the Everest Group PEAK Matrix. The firm also received the 2012 North America Recruitment Customer Relationship of the Year award from the Human Resources Outsourcing Association.

About Make-A-Wish Wisconsin
Make-A-Wish Wisconsin grants wishes throughout the entire state of Wisconsin and has granted nearly 4,600 wishes since its founding in 1984.

HR Executive: Thinking Global, Hiring Local

  
  
  
Pinstripe Executive Vice President Angela Hills shared her thoughts on how HR leaders should select and work with a recruitment process outsourcing partner for global hiring in an article from the November HR Executive magazine entitled Thinking Global, Hiring Local.

Angela Hills says many RPOs achieve that local brand and experience by partnering with local recruitment firms. “This provides a stable set of alliances that have a proven track record,” she says. Hills argues that this best-in-breed approach gives RPOs the pick of the most successful local companies while, at the same time, ensuring central governance.

New Research from Everest Group Quantifies Business Impact of Recruitment Process Outsourcing

  
  
  
BROOKFIELD, WI – September 18, 2012 – According to a new report from global research and advisory firm Everest Group, recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) has evolved to what it describes as RPO 2.0 to address the new challenges facing HR leaders in making business impact through their talent acquisition and management practices.

The paper, RPO 2.0 – Paradigm Shift in RPO Value Proposition, challenges RPO buyers and providers to no longer solely rely on process efficiencies as a measure of solution success. The next generation of recruitment partnerships – RPO 2.0 – builds on the efficiency foundation, but focuses on increasing the rate of internal hiring, reducing new hire attrition and reaching out to new, non-traditional talent pools to enable organizations to react quickly to rapidly changing marketplaces. The report shares examples and case studies where RPO 2.0 is already being delivered and concludes that it is providing up to 20% more financial value than traditional models.

“HR leaders are required to drive true business results in addition to their traditional role as a support function,” states Rajesh Ranjan, vice president of business process outsourcing research at Everest Group. “Perhaps the greatest advantage that RPO 2.0 can provide is to turn the dream of aligning workforce planning with overall business strategy into a reality.”

According to Sue Brooks, managing director of talent management specialist, Ochre House, which co-sponsored the research with its international partner Pinstripe, Inc., “The RPO industry, rightfully so, is moving away from just addressing immediate recruitment needs. Industry leaders are focusing on ahead of the curve architecture, wherein strategic workforce planning, employment branding and talent communities are employed to build effective and integrated internal and external pipelines to support critical roles within the organization.”

“Everest Group’s research points to what we have recognized as a building trend in the last three years. The RPO market is growing rapidly as buyers become more sophisticated, wanting more strategic support than is offered by many traditional RPO providers,” added Sue Marks, CEO of Pinstripe. “Growth oriented talent strategies are high priorities for CEOs. The pressure is on for providers to excel at the table-stakes of RPO 1.0, master the strategic requirements of RPO 2.0 and already reach to the future, defining RPO 3.0 and beyond.”

Ochre House and Pinstripe hosted a webinar featuring Everest Group’s Rajesh Ranjan to discuss the report findings.

About the Survey & HRO Today
HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen rankings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services; the ratings are not based on the opinion of the HRO Today staff. We collect feedback annually through an online survey, which we distribute both directly to buyers through our own mailing lists and indirectly by sending service providers the link to send to their clients. In order to determine an overall ranking, we analyze results across three subcategories: service breadth, deal sizes, and quality. Using a predetermined algorithm that weighs questions and categories based on importance, we calculate scores in all three subcategories as well as an overall score. The rankings are based on those scores. While we do not claim that our methodology is the only viable ratings program available, we do vouch for its statistical validity. HRO Today and www.hrotoday.com offer the best content choices for the HR leaders seeking online information in the form of newsletters, webinar series and online video content. HRO Today is a product of SharedXpertise. Find more information at www.sharedxpertise.com

No Slowing Down: HRO Today’s Annual Roundup of the Top Deals in Recruiting

  
  
  
BROOKFIELD, WI – February 28, 2012 –Pinstripe’s partnerships with Allstate Insurance Company and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia were featured in HRO Today’s Annual Roundup of Top Deals in Recruiting, published in its January/February edition.

“Our report on top RPO deals of 2011 was based on research performed by the editorial staff of HRO Today. In some but not all instances, the information was provided by RPO providers themselves. Data was also obtained from the editors’ market knowledge of bidding processes and their awards. For each listing, we researched the services and the hiring volumes and verified the information through the client or other sources. We have not listed hiring volumes or the division of exempt and non-exempt because of confidentiality agreements. The listings vary from program sizes that involve 500 hires to 10,000 hires. Volume is not the only benchmark, however, as we considered the breadth of services and the percentage of the talent pool involved in hard-to-fill categories. The deals are listed in alphabetical order by client.”
