“It is an honor to be recognized for our advances in technology by the Brandon Hall Group,” said Sanjay Sathé, RiseSmart president and CEO. “At RiseSmart, we are excited to bring change to an industry that has long been dominated by brick-and-mortar outplacement providers that aren't addressing the needs of the contemporary organization or job seeker. RiseSmart continues to achieve impressive growth and change the landscape of the outplacement industry by providing breakthroughs that move careers forward."

RiseSmart has been challenging long-established players in the outplacement market since 2007 and was recently acquired by Randstad Holding, one of the largest HR services companies in the world.
