- Talent Management Solution Provider takes steps towards a greener tomorrow by giving back and awarding clients for doing the same -
HAZLET, N.J. (April 22, 2010) – iCIMS, the 2nd largest provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition solutions, announced today, on the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, a continued commitment towards eco-friendly initiatives. From an eco-friendly corporate responsibility program to enabling businesses to go green through automation, iCIMS’ unwavering focus on the environment continues as a major focus in 2010.
World Resources Institute, Wind Capital Group, and Zipcar are just a few of the green companies to join the over 800 clients that utilize iCIMS as an eco-friendly alternative to the normally paper-intensive HR processes. From candidate management processes like requisition management and onboarding, to employee management solutions like employee data management and surveys; the iCIMS Talent Platform enables organizations from all industries and of all sizes to reduce their carbon footprint through automation, while equipping them with the best tools to attract, hire and retain top talent. iCIMS also offers an iCARE discount to firms that are clearly committed to reducing reliance on non-renewable energy. Organizations that demonstrate a commitment to solar, wind, and ethanol energy sources are eligible for iCARE contract discounts when they partner with iCIMS for their HR technology needs.
With tools like iCIMS’ iForms engine, organizations can convert any paper document (such as W-4 forms or Performance Appraisals) into a fully searchable, reportable file within the platform. Additionally, HR can trigger requests for employees to fill out the iForms, which route via email. Upon completion the form is automatically stored within the employee file of the iCIMS system – eliminating the need to ever print or store the myriad of documents associated with the employee lifecycle. Though flexible enough for any HR process, the iCIMS Talent Platform is especially ideal for facilitating the normally paper-heavy onboarding process. Through iCIMS' Talent Platform, HR professionals can coordinate the logistics of a new employee's first few days on the job, including a self-service portal for completion of post-hire forms, scheduling of employee orientation, internal notification to key parties, and more. Both eco-friendly and efficient, iCIMS’ onboarding tools enable businesses to create a positive transition for new employees without the hassle of printing and filing documents each step of the way.
iCIMS understands the magnitude of giving back to the environment, and is passionate about working towards a greener approach of conducting business, as well as taking part in various efforts to give back. From iCIMS’ iCARE program, which enables employees to support a clean environment through donations of time, talent, or money - to purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates from National Wind Farms that produce “clean” energy to offset electric usage, iCIMS’ dedication to creating a cleaner and healthier environment has been a core focus of the company for several years. At an employee level, iCIMS participates in Earth Share of New Jersey, which enables iCIMS employees to participate in environmental programs and events. Additionally, iCIMS has joined the Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership, a voluntary program that seeks to increase the use of clean, renewable energy sources among leading U.S. organizations. Most recently, under the iCARE program, employees adopted a nearby park in a demonstration of continuing commitment to the environment. On April 16th 2010, iCIMS employees joined together in a volunteer effort to participate in a park clean up of this Cheesequake State Park in NJ.
Additionally, iCIMS was honored with Earth Share of New Jersey’s Environmental Leadership Awards - a direct testament to iCIMS’ ongoing commitment to help preserve the environment through innovation. As a former recipient of the NJBIZ Green Leadership Awards and a finalist in the American Business Awards for Best Corporate Environmental Responsibility Program, iCIMS is committed to green initiatives in both corporate responsibility and business best-practices.
“As an environmentally-conscious company, we work hard to make sure we are continually doing our part to promote a greener tomorrow,” said iCIMS’ President and CEO Colin Day. “Giving back to the environment continues to be one of iCIMS’ defining characteristics, and we are thrilled to not only support so many green organizations but also channel this same passion into our own corporate responsibility programs.”
