OSLO, Norway – This has been a blockbuster year for Crayon. First, we were named Microsoft’s global AI and ML Partner of the Year and now, LinkedIn has named us finalists for the Best Talent Acquisition Team.

Of course, our talent acquisition colleagues have long been winners in our book.

LinkedIn’s team analyzed the performance, results and impact of organizations across the Nordic region utilizing LinkedIn Solutions to find, hire and develop top talent and Crayon has been recognized as among the best.

“We are extremely proud that LinkedIn has recognized us for our commitment toward global recruitment,” said Thea Smith, Crayon’s Director of Talent Acquisition. “We have a fantastic team of hard-working individuals who strive to find the very best talent for the world’s leading digitalization partner.”

Crayon’s talent acquisition team churns out impressive results, with more than 230 hires from around the world this year. That means there has been one person hired for every working day. LinkedIn has provided a channel to take our talent search up a notch.

Over the past 12 months, LinkedIn has served us in numbers we wouldn’t have been able to reach with just our hard-working team.

  • 82% of our job impressions were served to candidates who did not know Crayon
  • Our campaigns drove 254,000 candidates to our organization; 18,300 viewed our career page, 2,500 followed us, 2,100 applied for jobs and 48 were hired.

Crayon is a fast-growing company with offices in 30+ countries and it has delivered on its ambitious growth plans, especially in newly established markets. Our incredible Talent team have used LinkedIn to empower their candidate search, engage potential teammates and increase awareness of our organization. In the age of digitalization, combining our incredible teams and intelligent platforms are making our growth plans a reality.

LinkedIn’s Nordic Talent Awards are the region’s flagship program for companies who have made a mark in the recruitment and employer branding space.
