Using Oleeo Technology

What led to the need for a new system?

Morgan Stanley wanted a system that would help ensure that it retained its strong brand at target schools with a high touch candidate experience. It needed to support a new interview process being trialled and easily identify high achievers. The system needed to be able to help accelerate hiring and finding talent who share integrity, intellectual curiosity, and the desire to work in a friendly, inspiring environment. Morgan Stanley’s leadership is dedicated to conducting first-class business in a first-class way. Its board of directors and senior executives hold the belief that capital can and should benefit all of society and any recruitment system has to meet that expectation.
