Key Providers For 2022: Opptly

Originally published by Ardent Partners at

The Background:

Omni-channel talent acquisition has become a powerful way for enterprises to thrive in today’s evolving world of work. Businesses have realized, especially with a Great Resignation-fueled backdrop, that top-tier talent is not always available in a localized fashion or even through the traditional outlets that have carried the organization’s staffing requirements for years (or decades).

Talent communities, talent marketplaces, and talent pools, in addition to direct sourcing, have become critical elements of the new world of work and talent. Not only do businesses require the ability to directly-source talent by transforming their operations into internal recruiting agencies, but they also need to leverage its workplace culture, employer brand, and other organizational attributes to attract the best-fit talent and expertise. And, they require a true convergence of artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, next-level direct sourcing technology, and robust data science to get there.

Enter Opptly.

Why They Were Selected:

Talent decisions in 2022 are more important than they ever were before, as businesses continue to rely on their workforce as a key competitive differentiator in an increasingly-shifting and globalized corporate arena.
