PITTSBURGH (April 26, 2021) – JazzHR, the leading recruiting software provider for small and medium-sized businesses, today announced it is joining forces with Jobvite, the leading end-to-end talent acquisition solution provider, and NXTThing RPO, a high-growth recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) company. Backed by K1 Investment Management, the transaction combines three complementary companies to form the most comprehensive provider of talent acquisition and recruiting solutions for organizations of all sizes, spanning from SMBs to global enterprises.
