Brand Updates: NetOne Talent, YUPRO Placement, Thor Executive


Three workforce ecosystem firms announced rebrandings: NetOne Recruiter, Year Up Professional Resources and KeySource Global.

NetOne Recruiter, a digital platform for contract recruiters, announced Tuesday that it has rebranded to NetOne Talent. The rebranding comes as the company is also expanding its services to support IT professional skill sets. “We are extremely excited to take this next step in our journey as an innovative future of work technology company,” said Bill Peters, co-founder and chief visionary officer. “NetOne Talent has created an ‘easy button’ for companies to hire talent, and we’re excited to expand to other skills beyond recruiters.”

Year Up Professional Resources, the public benefit placement firm, has changed its name to Yupro Placement. The move aims to emphasize its focus to place non-degreed, entry-level and midcareer-level talent skilled through nontraditional pathways. “Founded on the belief that talent is universal, but job opportunity is not, we are dedicated to helping out clients adopt a skill-first approach to meeting their entry-level talent hiring demands,” CEO Michelle Sims said.

Thor Executive is the new brand for executive search provider KeySource Global. Recruitment company Thomas Thor acquired KeySource Global in 2016, and the announcement brings all of Thomas Thor’s executive search and leadership consultancy services under a unified, global brand. In North America, the business is being led by Director Diane Hoelzel.
