Findly Talent Plots Course: Findly and Hodes Redefine How Companies Connect with Talent

June 30, 2015



Newly Independent Entities Remain Constant in their Shared Focus of Transforming Talent Outcomes

NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO (June 30, 2015) – Findly and Hodes today announced how they will begin operating as independent entities within a keiretsu-style ecosystem. Possessing unprecedented expertise in connecting employers to their future employees, each is a subsidiary of Findly Talent, a Symphony Technology Group company.

San Francisco-based Findly will continue its focus on software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions that help companies improve the quality of the people they hire. Findly’s comprehensive cloud-based offerings include curated talent communities, candidate relationship management (CRM), applicant tracking systems (ATS), online assessments and the technology tools to drive candidate quality, segmentation, engagement and nurturing.

With more than 40 years of employer branding and recruitment advertising experience, New York City-based Hodes (formerly known as Bernard Hodes Group) is the market leader in helping companies connect with talent. Hodes’ full service strategy, marketing, creative and technology capabilities make it exceptionally prepared to address the complex talent transformation challenges faced by today’s enterprises. By working with Hodes, companies eliminate the need to manage disparate agencies, technology partners and professional services firms and improve their employer branding results.

Hodes has appointed Roopesh Nair as its president and CEO. Nair joins Hodes from SapientNitro. He has more than 10 years of experience driving omni-channel digital transformations across the retail, healthcare, manufacturing and financial services industries. Adept at integrating marketing best practices and the latest technologies, he was at Accenture Interactive earlier in his career.

“Mobility, social media, the speed of business and the accelerated pace of technology innovation have forever changed the way people move in and out of employer brand experiences. These encounters – and their related ramifications – are multi-faceted and can no longer be envisioned using a traditional or digital advertising model,” said Nair. “The employer brand-talent engagement model needs to be redefined and Hodes is leading that charge.”

“Findly and Hodes are bringing together the best of both worlds,” commented Richard Campione, president and CEO of Findly. “Our companies hold unrivaled ‘talent transformation’ domain expertise. Our joint concentration on innovative digital and technology solutions enables Findly and Hodes to ensure our clients are well-positioned to manage the rapidly emerging On-Demand Talent Economy.”

Hodes Senior Vice President, New Business, Lana Peters added, “As we move forward as two distinct entities, it’s important for our employees and our clients to understand the strength of the Hodes brand – a brand that stands for impeccable client service and fresh ideas. We have aligned our capabilities that span across media, social, creative, website, job distribution and analytics to support the overall goal of providing a consistent and continual employer brand experience at a global scale.”

Hodes and Findly are part of the “Hodes Global Network” that consists of multiple agencies across Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Hong Kong, India, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Italy. This network of agencies are structured so that that the growing roster of Hodes and Findly clients can fully leverage the latest advancements as well as strategies globally without having to manage multiple vendors.
