WorldConcert Named to HRO Today Magazine’s “Bakers Dozen” List of Top Recruitment Process Outsourcing Firms

Chicago (August 5, 2009) – WorldConcert announced today that it has been named to HRO Today Magazine’s “Enterprise Bakers Dozen” list of top recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) firms, along with its alliance associate CDI-Talent Management, a division of CDI Corp. (NYSE:CDI).

HRO Today covers the latest industry trends in human resources outsourcing, services, shared services and operations.  Each year, the magazine compiles three lists – Enterprise Bakers Dozen, Global Leaders and Leading Project/On Demand Providers – based on surveys completed by human resources executives currently utilizing RPO services. This year’s results are based on more than 375 submittals, each rating RPO providers on the breadth of their service, the size of the programs they manage and the quality of service provided.  

The Bakers Dozen list is considered by HRO Today to be the “flagship product of the survey” singling out the “top providers in RPO.” The ranking reflects the service provided by World Concert, CDI-Talent Management, and CDI’s Canadian affiliate, CDI Professional Services, Ltd.

“The WorldConcert team is pleased to be part of the Baker’s Dozen,” said Jack Downing, Managing Partner of WorldConcert.  “Through our network of 9 offices and over 100 recruiters, and the through the global reach of CDI, we are proud that our hands-on approach to delivering ’100% accountability’ has been recognized by our clients.”
