Leverage the power and efficiency of specialization.

Although many businesses realize the value of big data for HR, there is still a void of performance data available when it comes to working with outside recruiters. And both the corporate recruiter and search firm want to make a quality placement fast.

Scout research revealed that 91%  of placements come from specialty recruiters, and employers needed a way to quickly connect with the right recruiters. Scout’s algorithm matches the job with the specialty recruiters who have statistically performed the best for that type of role.  You don’t have to manage selection our performance based matching occurs automatically to find the best.

Our world class data analytics get more powerful with our partner integrations.  These envied partnerships sets us apart and allows  deep data views ultimately providing our customers the ability to make smart, informed decisions.

Unique data-driven Ratings

Scout alone features Marketplace Recruiting ratings that are machine-generated and based on quantifiable data that gauges a Search Firm recruiter’s actual performance relative to peers in similar situations. This feature complements Scout’s existing Employer Ratings, which are also machine-generated.

Search Firm Recruiter ratings are especially valuable in building employer confidence and trust in search firms they have not worked with previously. Scout ratings are calculated using a range of data points, including quantity of candidate submissions, acceptances and rejections relative to peers in similar scenarios on the platform. Expirations are not considered when calculating ratings.

Scout also normalizes the data to account for non-controllable factors such as whether or not a search firm is a Preferred Provider and timing of candidate submission relative to job posting date.

To achieve a rating, a Scout recruiter must maintain activity on the platform, defined as having actively disposed a sufficient number of candidates within a certain period of time.

Scout makes it easy.

Big data benefits specialty recruiters as well. One contract gives them access to a vast marketplace of relevant job requisitions, reducing the amount of time they need to spend on business development. With this model, specialty recruiters receive the job orders they are best equipped to fill. This results in more business opportunities and more satisfied clients. According to Staffing Industry Analysts, “specialization and sourcing relevant job orders create a tremendous business advantage for agency recruiters.”


Scout eliminates the hassle of analyzing and signing multiple agreements. Who needs red tape? One simple contract gets you access to all of the search firms on Scout. Sign only one contract, let us handle invoice management, benefit from vendor consolidation, and eliminate requirement-specific contracts.
