"The Talent Board CandE award process is the first systematic and disciplined approach to comparing the differences between employer practices and its impact on candidate attitude and behavior."
Welcome to a special Talent Acquisition Channel podcast on TotalPicture. This is Peter Clayton reporting. For the past three years I've been proud to be part of the CandE Council, the group advocating for a better Candidate Experience, promoting the Candidate Experience Awards, (CandEs), and research.
Joining me today to discuss Talent Board's 2015 North American CandE Research Report is Kevin W. Grossman, Talent Board vice-president, responsible for all aspects of the Candidate Experience Awards program and other Talent Board activities for North America. Kevin is also co-founder of the TalentCulture "world of work" community and co-host, with Megan M. Biro, of the popular weekly TalentCulture #TChat Show
Talent Board's 2015 North American CandE Research Report is now available! This rigorous, scientifically-supported data capture provides companies with valuable insights regarding their recruiting efforts.
Talent Board believes that there's no better source of real recruiting insight than crowd-sourced candidate impressions. In fact, these impressions help us all raise the bar - enabling us to measure and set standards for the candidate experience for the entire industry.
Talent Board is the first non-profit organization in the industry to give large numbers of companies access to aggregated candidate experience datasets. Each year, companies participating in the CandE Awards program send surveys to over 100,000 employment candidates (both successful and not) to assess their experience during the recruiting process. The number of companies and candidates participating has grown dramatically every year: In 2015, 130,000 candidates who applied to over 200 companies raised their hands and said they were willing to ask and listen to what their candidates had to say.
