Talent Function Achieves Strong Growth Throughout 2015

Company Expands Client Base, Extends Reach as Industry’s Leading Talent Acquisition Experts

SAN DIEGO, CA–(Marketwired – Feb 2, 2016) – Talent Function, reinventing Talent Acquisition for leading global organizations, today shared details of its strong performance in 2015. In the past year, the company welcomed new clients, expanded its reach to new verticals, increased revenue and shared its expertise in the talent acquisition space with the larger community.

“As companies strive to optimize their talent acquisition processes and technologies to ensure they have access to the best and brightest candidates, we have seen increased demand from nearly every industry segment,” said Lynn Knight, president of Talent Function. “This has led to tremendous growth for our team as we maintain our position as the consultants of choice for more leading global organizations, reflected by our stellar 2015 performance. We expect this growth to continue in 2016 as we further set ourselves apart through our unrivaled process improvement and technology expertise.”

In 2015, Talent Function worked with more than two dozen clients, 80 percent of which are in the Fortune 500, to help them achieve efficient technology deployments and drive performance at their organizations. As the company continues to grow, it remains true to its boutique style, offering highly strategic and specialized talent acquisition service offerings. The company also expanded its industry competence by working with clients in the pharmaceuticals, finance and education sectors, accounting for 12 distinct industry verticals. As a result, the company achieved an increase in revenue of 35 percent compared to 2014.

Talent Function also received significant recognition throughout the year. Company founder and CEO Elaine Orler was recognized by HRO Today as a 2015 Superstar in the Advisory category for demonstrating forward thinking and transformative actions in the field of HR. In addition, Orler shared her thought leadership at the 2015 HR Technology Conference and Exposition, presenting the session, “Connecting the Dots: Talent Acquisition Technology in 2015.” As an exhibitor at the event, the company also met with numerous HR professionals, recruiters and hiring managers to explain how talent acquisition technology intersects with and informs an effective recruiting strategy.

Throughout 2015, Talent Function’s leaders and consultants shared their expertise at more than 20 conferences, events and webinars. Talent Function also showed its dedication to improving recruitment processes as a Global Platinum Sponsor of the 2015 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards, and will do so again for the 2016 program.

Under the direction of Talent Function’s leadership team, consisting of Knight and Orler, along with Tracey Middlemas, executive vice president of Consulting Solutions, and Amanda Aasen, executive vice president of Finance, Operations and Human Resources, the company is committed to achieving continued growth and enhanced performance while playing to their respective strengths throughout 2016.

“It isn’t often that you get to say that you love going to work every day,” said Orler, “but the high caliber, high functioning team that makes up Talent Function is doing just that. We’re living our passions, delivering client success around talent acquisition and having fun doing it.”
