TheLadders unveils this year's ELITE recruiters for the San Francisco area.

As a pioneer in the recruitment industry, TheLadders has worked with employers around the country to find the right person for the right job. While we aim to make the process as easy as possible, we recognize that job-matching success relies heavily on a committed hiring team, and with more than 67,000 recruiters and employers in our network, it’s safe to say that the level of commitment varies from professional to professional.

That said, it is important for us to recognize and celebrate the people who contribute to our success in each of our key markets. Early last year, I announced the launch of a new program for employers -- TheLadders ELITE, which initially kicked off in New York, and expanded to San Francisco and Chicago, Atlanta and Boston. The program celebrates a short list of exceptional employers in our most popular recruiting markets, representing the top 1 percent of our users. Each ELITE employer is hand-selected, based upon their TTM performance (Trailing Twelve Months, immediately prior to the list’s announcement), while demonstrating outstanding citizenship within TheLadders’ community.

In June, the program will once again come to San Francisco. When it comes to employers and recruiters in this city by the bay, the 1 percent below has gone above and beyond to be amongst TheLadders ELITE! 

Join us at JobMobile San Francisco on Tuesday, June 10 to celebrate the 2014 honorees.

As I sit comfortably in our lower-Manhattan headquarters, the 88-degree temperature outside isn’t the only thing that continues to heat up our summer! Three weeks ago, we unveiled our native iOS mobile app for job seekers, which has received more than 100,000 downloads in less than the first week alone, and quickly shot to the top ranks on the App Store.

Additionally, we are generating a lot of attention from the quality of our jobs and the positive experience that our more than 40,000 recruiters relentlessly provide to our more than 6 million job seekers every day. Therefore, it is important for us to recognize and celebrate the people who contribute to our success in each of our key markets. Last March, I announced the launch of a new program for employers -- TheLadders ELITE – which kicked off with an esteemed list of 100 ELITE corporate and agency employers for New York City and 60 ELITE employers for San Francisco.
