Empowering a New Phase of Growth at Employ

By Steve Cox, CEO, Employ 

Today, I join Employ as CEO. I am excited to be here, and I want to share my thoughts on this exciting time at the company. I begin this journey during a period of incredible growth, alongside talented individuals who are committed to making an everlasting impact on the recruiting and talent acquisition space.  

My focus at Employ is one of continuous investment, empowerment, and achievement. Where we fuel an environment of success, driven by and for people. 

Applying People-First Leadership  

Throughout my career, I’ve seen the power of nurturing talent to drive transformative growth. And I believe in balancing technological innovation with human-centered management.  

During a time when companies of all sizes and recruiting complexities are expected to do more with less — to attract talent faster than ever before, deliver stronger candidates to the business, and drive exceptional outcomes for their organization — it takes people working together to realize more impactful outcomes.  

I look forward to providing steady leadership that builds on the strong foundation of our company, accelerates the momentum of our JazzHR, Lever, Jobvite, and NXTThing RPO solutions, and drives a robust, customer-centric organization for years to come.   

We have the opportunity to empower organizations in attracting and hiring talent like never before. Because each candidate, each customer, each partner, and each hire made is deeply personal. Especially at a time when hiring is more difficult than ever before — and connecting companies and candidates is essential to the backbone of our shared success.


Keeping Promises, Driving Growth  

I am humbled and honored to join the organization and to leverage my experience in rapid-change, scaling SaaS environments, so we can begin the next phase of growth within Employ. By focusing on developing people, growing the company, and creating value, we will deliver sustained success for everyone.  

To the organizations that Employ serves, from SMBs to large enterprise, you can have confidence that we will continue to deliver for you, no matter the complexity of your recruiting needs. Our ongoing investment in each of our products will help you drive value in your business, and align recruiting technologies, strategies, and processes to business outcomes. 

For talent acquisition and recruiting professionals, we remain committed to your individual success and will continue to provide best of breed functionality without disruption. We will act as advocates and as trusted advisors, developing relationships that support your career. And as you grow, we will grow with you. 

And for our employees, you are the reason for our success. It is because of you that we have come so far. Your passion, and commitment to delight customers and bring together the most talented team in the market, empowers us to deliver on our promises.  

This is truly a pivotal moment for Employ and our future has never been brighter. I am grateful for the opportunity to lead Employ on the next phase of this exciting journey.
