The Outbound All Stars Awards 2019: Celebrating the Unsung Heroes of Hiring & Recruitment

When the right people come together at the right time, magic happens.

Two teams did it on 10 July, 2019.

While we witnessed New Zealand doing it in style and India missing it by a mark, Belong did so at its annual Outbound All Stars Awards.

We celebrated the outperformers, the hustlers, and the changemakers for reshaping the face of the recruiting industry.

The Outbound All Stars Awards are to cherish and shine a spotlight on the Talent Acquisition and Recruiters’ community, ensuring exceptional candidate experience, strong employer brand, and more tangible benefits to their organizations.

Once, every year, we decide to celebrate the recruiters all over India for their contribution. It is not just to honor their efforts but also to celebrate their quest to overhaul the recruitment industry and make it more data and technology driven.

We revamped Outbound.org

And made it better, and exciting!

We launched outbound.org last year.

Owing to the amazing response, we decided to take it a notch up!

The platform now also ranks all the outbound recruiters. The scores get updated in real-time and evaluation is on the basis of points earned on the candidate experience score, pipeline health, and responsiveness of recruiters to candidates.

Our CEO talked about Belong

Our Co-founder and CEO Vijay Sharma took the stage to address the august gathering around Belong’s growth. He thoroughly talked about what Belong is bringing to the table, what all is Belong working on, and how are we offering end-to-end solutions to the talent and business community not only in India but also across international markets.

Vijay talked about our vision, values, what drives this team towards one single goal, and how are we focused on making people belong.

With a little more than 200 seats filled, the Outbound All Stars Awards 2019 was our biggest and most successful event yet and we are highly grateful to everyone who attended and made time for the night.
