Greenhouse, the leading hiring software platform, introduced its Customer-Preferred Partner Program, a new partnership model to help companies make better hiring tech decisions by introducing peer guidance for Talent Acquisition (TA) tech stack considerations. The program elevates technology partners from within Greenhouse’s 300+ partner ecosystem – the most comprehensive in the industry – that create the most value and are preferred by existing Greenhouse customers.

“Given the hundreds of innovative applications that can improve a customer’s TA tech stack, it is almost impossible for companies to keep up,” said Dane Hurtubise, Vice President of Platforms and Partnerships at Greenhouse.  “Increasingly, TA teams need to mitigate their risk of wasting time, money and reputation capital on systems and applications that might not live up to the marketing hype. TA teams need peer guidance and objective information to navigate the fast-changing hiring space effectively. By launching the Customer-Preferred Partner Program, Greenhouse is elevating those partners and technologies most preferred and implemented by Greenhouse customers.”

The first 11 companies, covering a broad range of TA-related technologies, named to Greenhouse’s Customer-Preferred Partner Program include: Checkr (background checks), Gem (sourcing and email automation), GoodHire (background checks), Glassdoor (sourcing), HackerRank (testing), Hired (sourcing), HireRight (background checks), Interview Schedule (scheduling), LinkedIn (sourcing), Namely (HRIS) and Spark Hire (video interviewing). More companies will be added as the program matures.

Greenhouse’s Customer-Preferred Partner Program is designed to streamline the process of creating the optimal tech stack for companies – whether starting from scratch or selecting by category, customers can get a clear sense of what tools their peers are using successfully. The program elevates partners who have a history of success servicing Greenhouse customers and are typically the most popular tools that integrate with Greenhouse technology. In order to maintain the integrity of the program, new partners cannot immediately obtain Customer-Preferred status. Greenhouse consistently monitors which tools customers use and prefer the most and will continue to add more partners as the program scales.
