Chicago – (January 24, 2019) – SilkRoad Technology was honored with a Gold Award in Talent Acquisition for Best Advance in Onboarding Technology in the 2018 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Talent Acquisition Awards.

SilkRoad will receive the award along with fellow Excellence Awards winners at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference in a ceremony being held the evening of January 24.

“We recognize when you engage people at every step of their journey with a company, you keep those people longer. Our strategic platform provides the ultimate candidate-to-employee experience, empowering people to succeed in their role over the first weeks and months, throughout the first year and during every career transition,” said Lilith Christiansen, VP of Onboarding Solutions for SilkRoad. “The platform provides a new hire experience unlike any other—mobile and automatically timed to provide what the employee needs when it’s needed. It helps new hires make a genuine connection to their work and company goals, not just paperwork.”

“Excellence Award winners personify innovation that drives business results. Our winners embrace the future and embrace change and the challenges that go with it,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “It is amazing in reviewing these entries how organizations—both large and small—work across functions to make human capital management a valuable asset that enables business success.”
