Zao Announced as an Onrec 2015 Finalist in Four Categories

Onrec 2015 Finalist

We are very happy to announce that Zao has been nominated as a finalist for Onrec’s 2015 Online Recruitment Awards for the following four categories:

  1. Technical Innovation
  2. Best Use of Mobile
  3. Innovative Use of Social Media in the Recruitment Process
  4. Best Corporate Use of Online Recruitment

Zao has built an easy to use world-class social recruiting platform based around the concepts of growth and innovation. We understand the importance of improving the referral process to make it successful, simple to use, and always accessible for our clients. Our team looks to client feedback and current trends in technology and social media to determine how to develop new advancements.

Zao understands the importance of automation and the increasing usage of mobile recruiting. In today’s society, timing is imperative. The key to making your referral program work is by creating a system that allows employees to easily join and participate in referrals. Zao provides mobile friendly referrals that can be automatically accessed on the go from any device, allowing for on the go referrals and recommendations.

The majority of referral programs today do not utilize user data found on social networks, however Zao embraces social media technology to connect employees to their friends on Facebook and LinkedIn. These social networks are great for companies to use for finding candidates and Zao takes advantage of these options by incorporating them into their referral process.

It’s an honor that Onrec recognizes our growth, talent and achievements within the Online Recruitment Industry. Our team has dedicated their efforts into creating an innovative employee referral program and we look forward to another successful year filled with positive developments.

Zao would like to thank Onrec for hosting the awards and for their consideration and nominations. We would like to congratulate all of the other finalists of the Onrec’s Online Recruitment Awards 2015 and wish them all the best of luck!
