Cielo Extends Partnership with Agilent Technologies into Asia-Pacific Region

Program Growth Illustrates Success and Longevity of Partnership

BROOKFIELD, WI – May 5, 2015 – Cielo (formerly Pinstripe & Ochre House), the world’s leading pure-play provider of global Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) solutions, today announced the extension of its partnership with Agilent Technologies, a global leader in life sciences, diagnostics and applied chemical markets, into the Asia-Pacific region (APAC). Cielo will recruit for various Agilent roles, including specialist positions across the company's life sciences and engineering functional areas. Cielo will also serve as Master Vendor and work with specialist recruitment companies for specific positions as required. The partnership begins in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

"Talent is rising in importance, re-defining the entire business landscape. Through this extended partnership, we are thrilled to provide Agilent with the talent needed to enable their corporate vision and future successes in the Asia-Pacific region," said Sue Marks, Cielo’s Founder and CEO. "Our team looks forward to working collaboratively and seamlessly with Agilent to achieve a competitive talent advantage around the world."

Contributing to Agilent's rapid growth and sustained success is the ability to attract, train and retain exceptional talent worldwide, a capability supported through the company’s end-to-end RPO partnership with Cielo across all talent management initiatives. With a five-year contract extension for the Americas and Europe RPO programs signed in 2014, the expansion of Cielo and Agilent's partnership into the Asia-Pacific region illustrates the success and longevity of the relationship.

“Cielo's commitment to serving as an extension of our team through its depth of experience and recruitment expertise has helped us make talent a differentiator in all regions," said Nury Plumley, Talent Acquisition and Mobility Director at Agilent. "As the Asia-Pacific region is an increasingly important global business target, our partnership with Cielo allows us to hire not only the top talent, but the right talent our organization needs in order to thrive."

Cielo's highly scalable, strategic recruitment capabilities have enabled Agilent to hire the best talent in the market since the partnership's commencement in 2009. From developing tailored, global social media campaigns to optimizing Agilent's application process and candidate experience, as well as bridging the gap between recruitment and employment, Cielo has delivered more than 4,700 hires in 15 countries for Agilent.

“Despite the challenges of today's ever-evolving talent marketplace, Cielo has helped Agilent to scale at relatively short notice under a single global framework, underpinned by a common technology platform and standardized, innovative processes,” said Madelyn Lip, Vice President of Human Resources at Agilent in the Asia-Pacific region. "As we expand our reach in Asia-Pacific, Cielo's in-depth global capabilities and total immersion in our corporate culture, brand, mission and values will no doubt enable seamless, timely and successful onboarding of top talent."
