Virtusa named Finalist in Monster of HR Award 2014

Company adds prestigious award to its roster of recognition in the Human Resources space

WESTBOROUGH, Mass., – (December 18, 2014) – Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ GS: VRTU), a global IT services company that combines innovation, technology leadership and industry solutions to transform the customer experience, today announced that it was recognized as one of the top three finalist in the 2014 Monster HR® award, presented by Monster. Virtusa was recognized for its innovative use of Monster recruitment technology solutions to help boost its Millennial hiring efforts.

“Being recognized for our progressive Millennial recruitment strategies by Monster Technologies is both gratifying and humbling,” said Sundararajan Narayanan, senior vice president and global head of HR, at Virtusa. "To attract the best talent to Virtusa, we place significant emphasis on the recruiting and hiring process. Monster Technologies has helped expand our reach and accelerate our ability to hire Millennials and we are thrilled that our innovative use of this technology has been recognized. We look forward to continuing and strengthening our partnership.”

Virtusa is an employee-centric company, comprised of 80% Millennials who are tech savvy. Virtusa’s use of Monster technology to recruit and hire top entry-level and talented niche mid-market employees helps it to stay ahead of competitors in the talent war. Monster technology is not only used for searching the database for prospective candidates but is also widely used for its targeted emails. This one-stop-shop helps our hiring managers spend less time finding and hiring talent and more time training them with the necessary technology. The time saved in the hiring process allows Millennials, a key employee demographic for Virtusa, to quickly and effectively jump right into their new roles. Additionally, Virtusa’s use of Monster technologies for social and digital hiring campaigns directly reaches Millennials where they already are, such as on email, social media and other networking sites. It also helps coordinate our organization’s presence at job fairs. Additionally, by not worrying about investing time and resources in hiring software, Virtusa is able to spend more time on engaging and retaining Millennials once they are hired through gamification, V+, Virtusa’s internal social business platform and digital events such as YamJams.

“We were impressed with how quickly and effectively Virtusa started utilizing our technology to make a truly positive impact on their business,” said Jeff Greenler, vice president of Global Brand and Advertising, Monster. “Their use of the technology to attract millennials plays into their overall company landscape, making them a strong addition to the group of finalists.”

As a finalist, Virtusa developed a video highlighting their recruitment success, which was featured at the Monster Recruitment Summit in Phoenix, AZ from October 28 -30th. The winner of the 2014 Monster of HR® award was announced on October 29th, 2014. For more information about the award, please visit:
