The annual Ventana Research Digital Innovation Awards showcase advances in the productivity and potential of business applications, as well as technology that contributes significantly to the improved processes and performance of an organization. Our goal is to recognize technology and vendors that have introduced noteworthy digital innovations to advance business and IT.

1-Aug-25-2021-02-56-12-67-PMVentana Research has awarded PandoLogic’s pandoIQ its prestigious 2021 Digital Innovation Award for Human Capital Management. This award is given to an HCM vendor that best exemplifies overall innovation in support of an organization’s ability to leverage its people, processes, information and technology in driving impactful HCM-related business outcomes.

Human Capital Management is an enterprise-wide responsibility to elevate workforce engagement, retention, capability and productivity so that the organization’s level of execution and agility is a major sustainable source of competitive advantage.

Ventana Research selected PandoLogic for the 14th Annual Human Capital Management Digital Innovation Award for solving a business problem that has historically plagued human resource and staffing departments — namely, how to optimize the often material annual spend on recruitment advertising while simultaneously generating the highest-caliber and best-fit candidates.

Being system-guided by key HCM insights and having a technology platform that automatically acts on those insights is a major competitive advantage. This certainly applies to the candidate sourcing and recruiting arena. It is the type of broad capability that allows organizations to ascend the ranks within their industry sector. The ability to automatically and intelligently post jobs to the particular candidate sourcing channels that generate a high volume of relevant candidates has historically not been a data science-driven activity. When it is, however, the return on investment opportunity for recruitment advertising spend is quite compelling. PandoLogic’s pandoIQ platform does exactly this, in a proven and reliable manner. Customers are not only winding up with a higher-performing workforce, but spending less to get there. Plus, PandoLogic’s customers ensure that considerations related to areas such as diversity, equity and inclusion and compliance are accounted for in the process.

The demand for more agile and data-driven approaches has rapidly become a priority for every organization. If you have not examined how PandoLogic’s pandoIQ product can help your organization, it is well worth your time. Congratulations, PandoLogic, for your continued innovation.
