CTA is responsible for managing all national talent policies, standards and regulations on behalf of the Chinese Government. The project with MrTed supports an unprecedented nationwide initiative to develop and leverage online talent acquisition services to increase speed and accuracy of hiring for tens of thousands of companies across all industries throughout the country. As the only true provider of on-demand global talent acquisition solution in China, MrTed is ideally positioned to better serve organizations seeking to identify and hire the most coveted talent by providing a solution that is easily configurable, rich in features, easy to implement, and seamlessly integrated to other enterprise-class business systems.

“The improvement of the national employment situation is one of the key objectives for the MOHRSS in the next 5 years. We are honored that the Chinese government eventually choose MrTed as the long-term and strategic partner for achieving this critical mission,” said Johnny Wang, Managing Director for MrTed China. “We will support CTA to setup the largest Talent Acquisition platform in China, thousands of recruiters in all major cities and districts across China will make use of MrTed’s flagship solution, MrTedTalentLink. As the market leader in China, MrTed was already positioned to serve the needs of leading global companies here, and now MrTedTalentLink is positioned to become the underlying hiring platform for the entire nation.”

“With China emerging from the global downturn faster than other economies, the need to attract, hire and retain the best talent is expected to increase. That China has elected to centralize and standardize management of this critical process with MrTed clearly demonstrates the government agency’s appreciation for the best global talent acquisition solution. It also underscores MrTed’s unique ability to help the world’s largest organizations to master the complexity of recruiting locally on a global scale,” said Jerome Ternynck, CEO and co-founder of MrTed. “We are very excited to work with the Chinese government on this very important project, and we are proud to be part of the largest-ever deployment of cloud-based talent acquisition software.”
