Editors of HR Executive® Magazine Honor Monster® with Top HR Product of the Year Award for SeeMore™

MAYNARD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 3, 2012-- Today, Monster®, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and the flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW) announced that SeeMore™ - the world’s first cloud-based semantic search and analytics recruiting platform – was named one of the top products of 2012 by Human Resource Executive® magazine. The award will be formally announced at the 15th annual HR Technology® Conference in Chicago on Oct. 8. Monster will also be showcasing the power of its SeeMore technology in a DEMO session taking place the following day, Oct. 9 at 1:30pm during the HR Technology® Conference.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the editors of HR Executive magazine for the positive impact our innovative search technology is having on the recruitment industry,” said Mark Conway, senior vice president for Monster Worldwide. “SeeMore is helping recruiters make precise talent matches that limitations of traditional search engines cannot uncover.”

SeeMore allows employers to consolidate all of their talent pools in one place and use Monster’s market-leading 6Sense® search technology to quickly identify and rank the best candidates. SeeMore analyzes every resume with a recruiter-like understanding of skills and qualifications, matching job requirements to top job candidates. With SeeMore, recruiters, hiring managers and HR executives have access to a big-data platform for semantic analysis of their talent pools at scale.

“Human Resource Executive® has been evaluating HR products and conducting this competition for 24 years,” explained David Shadovitz, editor of Human Resource Executive. “Our goal has always been to identify products and services that clearly offer value to the HR community while demonstrating innovation. SeeMore stood out to us as a very clear example of technology that is meeting the big data challenges being faced by recruiters, helping companies move beyond talent sourcing to talent management. With SeeMore’s advanced analytics for strategic workforce planning, HR teams can better streamline their talent management workflow reducing recruitment costs and improving the productivity of HR teams.”

On the heels of its growing expansion in the U.S. among enterprise companies and staffing firms, Monster recently announced the beta launch of SeeMore in France. In addition, the company also unveiled SeeMore for small business (SMB), giving SMB customers in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia access to a tailored version of SeeMore to manage resumes more efficiently and hire quality talent quickly. These new products mark the first in a series of introductions enabled by the company’s cloud-based semantic search and analytics platform to serve customers worldwide.

This marks the third consecutive year that the editors of HR Executive Magazine have named a Monster product in their top products of the year. In 2010, Monster received accolades from HR Executive Magazine for Power Resume Search, powered by its patented 6Sense® semantic search technology, for its precision talent matching capabilities. Last year, HR Executive Magazine recognized BeKnown™, Monster’s professional networking app for Facebook, which combines the power of Monster and Facebook, extending the ability of employers and job seekers to connect around great opportunities, while delivering Monster jobs to millions of users on the world’s largest and most popular social network.
