In February K1 Investment Management today announced a majority investment in Jobvite, the industry leader in best-of-breed recruiting software.
K1 and Jobvite also announced three major acquisitions: Talemetry, the award-winning recruitment marketing company, RolePoint, the leader in employee referral and internal mobility, and Canvas, the industry’s only text-based conversational recruiting company. For the first time, this combination enables hiring teams to source, engage, hire, onboard, and retain top talent with one end-to-end platform – delivering a unified candidate experience.
This unique set of investments, totaling more than $200 million, brings together Jobvite and three of the recruiting industry’s most innovative companies, resulting in more than 2,000 customers, including Fortune 500 enterprises such as Schneider Electric, Lenovo, Santander, PayPal, Genuine Parts, and Panasonic.
This merger rapidly accelerates the companies’ product development roadmaps and the integration of their customer solutions. In addition, the combined companies will continue to meet existing client needs, including all system integrations as well as maintaining all operations globally.
Matt Singer is their VP of Marketing and he joins Chris Russell to talk about the news and what lies ahead.
