Opportunity International Savings and Loans Limited Selects Vurv Express to Automate Recruitment Process

- Financial Institution is First Ghanaian-Based Company to Deploy Web-Based Recruitment Technology -

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Vurv Technology (formerly Recruitmax), a global provider of technology and services for building great workforces, announced today that Opportunity International Savings and Loans Limited (Opportunity Ghana) has selected Vurv Express Recruitment, part of Vurv's SMB product line, to optimize and streamline the company's talent acquisition process. Opportunity Ghana, a non-bank financial institution dedicated to serving the poorest of the working poor, is the first company headquartered in Ghana to apply technology to the recruitment and selection process.

Opportunity Ghana chose Vurv Express Recruitment to address the challenge of hiring top banking professionals with limited recruitment resources. The technology has already improved the quality and quantity of applicants and is allowing Opportunity Ghana to better match candidates with appropriate positions. The company is also utilizing this technology to help better determine a candidate's cultural fit within the organization, all while saving time and reducing overall talent acquisition cost.

"Finding and developing talent in this market is a major challenge," said Effie Cooke, Head of Human Resources for Opportunity Ghana. "Our recruiting and hiring processes are decentralized and each manager is responsible for his or her own recruiting and hiring. By using Vurv Express Recruitment, we have been able to identify top talent quickly and with increased efficiency."

"Finding great talent is a challenge for companies around the globe," said Derek Mercer, Vurv's CEO. "We're honored to be selected as the first web- based recruitment system in Ghana and look forward to helping Opportunity Ghana fulfill its mission of finding and developing great people."

Opportunity Ghana, licensed by the Central Bank of Ghana, has over 300 employees and serves more than 100,000 micro and small entrepreneurs with loans, deposits and other financial services. Currently, the company is the highest capitalized savings and loan company in Ghana with clients in the active trading, manufacturing, agriculture, food and service industries.
