we help companies build their winning workforce.
In 1999, our founder, Colin Day, launched a bold venture to build an end-to-end recruiting platform that integrates with the world's leading HCM systems to enable hiring teams to scale their companies with more power and fewer barriers. Today, as the world's leading HR cloud platform for recruiting, we proudly empower companies to build their winning workforce and hire more than 4 million people globally every year.
Our values are vital to the way we run our company. We're customer obsessed, and believe in holding ourselves accountable to them, our business, and each other. We create with purpose, focused on delivering innovation with fierce velocity so we can help your business run faster, more efficiently, and get you to where you need to be tomorrow, today. We believe our diversity facilitates great teamwork, drives success, and directly contributes to our one-of-a-kind company culture, and are committed to fostering a welcoming, inclusive environment where everyone's uniqueness shines.
"We chose a—really the—best in breed recruiting platform to maximize the quality and functionality of the experience, and to minimize the wasted motion for all users—recruiters, candidates, and hiring managers."
"We needed a system that understood modern day recruiters and prioritized recruitment. [With iCIMS], our candidate experience is a thousand times improved."
"iCIMS has allowed us to make it easy and attractive for candidates to apply for a job with us. As a result, we're winning the time of those candidates over competitors with longer and more complicated-looking processes."
"iCIMS has been able to adapt with us as we change and grow at a rapid place. We've heard vendors say, "we are flexible to your needs and you can customize everything," only to hear them say "we can't do that." iCIMS has actually been able to deliver."
Before he was our founder, Colin Day was a recruiter with a vision. At Comrise Technology, an IT staffing firm, he envisioned recruiting software that worked the way recruiters wanted to work. At the time, Colin was placing tech talent at the iconic Bell Labs building in New Jersey and Comrise was using the "CIMS" software internally.
Colin saw a need in the market for a recruiting software focused on getting the basics right: amazing service coupled with tech that was easy to use and could flex to scale up or down at any time. So in 1999 he launched iCIMS to the world and for 20 years Colin led the company with his signature drive and passion. Through Colin, iCIMS grew to be the number one recruitment technology provider, supporting the strategic talent initiatives of the world's largest brands. Over the years Colin was frequently recognized, from EY's Entrepreneur of the Year to a top CEO from Glassdoor, CEO World, and The SaaS Report.
In 2017 Colin brought iCIMS full circle to his early recruiting days and moved the company's global headquarters to Bell Works, the reimagined Bell Labs campus. Today, he serves as Chairman of iCIMS' Board of Directors.
We believe strongly in giving back to both our environment and the communities in which we live and work. We're committed to being a zero-sum consumer of fossil fuels and sponsor a variety of environmental initiatives, including beach sweeps and cleanups at local parks as well as around our own HQ at Bell Works. Employees also have the option of donating a portion of their paycheck through EarthShare to help combat environmental issues recently, iCIMS and its employees donated $30K to local healthcare organizations to help combat COVID-19.
