Working together with Cigna over 20 years ago, Aquent was the first to figure out how to deliver benefits to contingent talent. Today, Cigna continues to meet our unique needs by supporting custom benefits through Square Deal.
We believe in the value of outside perspectives, especially during the hiring process. That's why we’ve developed a network of industry experts in Design, UX, Web Development, and Digital Marketing to conduct independent assessments of our talent. During these assessments, experts review talent portfolios and ask questions to better understand their technical skills and experience. The experts then follow up on these discussions by creating interview summaries that are submitted to clients.
We believe lifelong learning is fundamental to career growth and professional development. We are proud to partner with the leading online learning platform, Open edX, to deliver Aquent Gymnasium, our free catalog of online courses taught by industry experts. Gymnasium provides a unique combination of skill-building opportunities in web design, UX, development, and more with job opportunities thanks to Aquent’s vast network of recruiters and clients. In addition, we frequently share our experience with Open edX at events and contribute code to improve this open-source platform.
Ask any student and they will tell you that the professor makes the course. We make sure that our Gymnasium instructors are not only engaging, but also the best in their fields. From design to development and more, our course instructors are thought-leaders who are well known in their industries and willing to share their expertise in order to create a better future and support continuous learning.
Scout, our talent acquisition platform and recruiting marketplace, connects with the most popular Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to give our clients the widest possible access to talent and talent the greatest access to open jobs. These integrations mean that employers don’t need to install any new software or infrastructure or work in new systems to start taking advantage of Scout.
Our integrations include:
We also have relationships with top consulting firms that support Scout/ATS integrations. They include:
ThinkTalent for Taleo
OneSource Virtual for Workday
Veritas Prime for SuccessFactors
Since 2016, we have been partnering with creative professionals and local nonprofits to create change in communities. Passionate creatives, from around the globe, tell us about a nonprofit cause they’re passionate about and how they would use their creative, design, and/or marketing skills to help the organization make real, lasting change.
We believe in harnessing the power of creative thinking to create change in our communities. To this end, we have partnered with Capital One to sponsor Four Good, a workshop series that brings together design, marketing, branding, and other creative leaders to tackle a challenge faced by a local nonprofit. When these organizations connect with creative talent to solve an important issue or problem, new opportunities are unlocked for everyone.
