Talent Board Announces Winners of 2019 North American Candidate Experience Awards

Talent Board Candidate Experience Awards

65 companies will be recognized for candidate experience excellence and ranked by company size this year at the CandE Awards Gala

PRESS RELEASE — SAN FRANCISCO — Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today revealed the winners of the 2019 North American Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards. Over 170 companies registered to participate in the 2019 North American Talent Board CandE Awards benchmark research program, which ultimately collected the thoughts and experiences of over 195,000 job candidates.

Winners were identified through a comprehensive data analysis based on their job candidates’ satisfaction survey scores. To qualify, each company committed to a statistically significant candidate response rate, where the proportion of respondents who were not hired met or exceeded a set standard. The final analysis included four key questions that had a significant impact on determining the winners:

  1. The candidates’ overall ranking of their candidate experience
  2. Whether or not they would reapply to the organization in the future
  3. Whether or not they would refer to other job seekers to the organization in the future
  4. And how the candidates would change their business relationship status with the organization going forward based on their experience

The above analysis resulted in a final CandE score for each participating organization. This year the 65 organizations big and small across multiple industries that received the highest positive candidate experience ratings in North America had an average CandE score 144 percent higher than all other participating organizations. We continue to see an increased focus on Candidate Experience and the value it brings to an organization.
