RiseSmart has been named “Innovative Company of the Year” at the 3rd Annual 2011 Golden Bridge Awards. This provider of next generation outplacement services was honored as the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, along with eight other winners, including such names as Apple and Twitter.

This interesting bit of information was found on SF Gate in their article, “RiseSmart Named “Innovative Company of the Year” in the 3rd Annual 2011 Golden Bridge Awards.” Their platform utilizes aggregation technology, semantic search and human filtering to provide the best match of jobseekers with open positions.

Now that they are playing with the big boys, this recognition could leverage their cloud-based outplacement solution, Transition Concierge, within the industry as a key tool in changing the way companies manage and measure their employee transition programs.
