Talent Acquisition Consultancy Promotes Recruiting Innovation via Growing Awards Program

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 10, 2015) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Talent Function, reinventing Talent Acquisition for leading global organizations, has become a Global Platinum supporter of the 2015 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards.

Now entering its fifth year in North America, the annual CandE Awards competition and benchmarking survey recently expanded across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) in addition to the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. Participation in the CandE Awards consists of a three-round process that is designed to evaluate and assess the experience of job seekers, whether hired or not.

"We are thrilled to have Talent Function as a sponsor of the CandE Awards," said Gerry Crispin, Talent Board co-founder and principal and co-founder of CareerXroads. "Passionate about recruiting processes, Talent Function is committed to improving Talent Acquisition practices globally, which aligns with the mission of the CandEs."

The winners of the 2015 NAM CandE Awards program will be revealed during the Second Annual Candidate Experience Symposium taking place in Fort Worth, Texas later this year. As part of the three-day event, Talent Board will host the Fifth Annual CandE Awards Reception and Banquet on the evening of Thursday, October 1, 2015. Attendees of the three-day symposium event will have the opportunity to attend the reception and connect with CandE Award winners, HR leaders, talent acquisition experts and industry influencers.

"Given our area of expertise, this relationship is mutually beneficial for Talent Function. Working with the Candidate Experience Awards programs affords Talent Function access to the very latest trend data and information influencing the candidate experience and, thereby, talent acquisition and recruiting practices," said Lynn Knight, president of Talent Function. "We are a proud advocate for the CandE Awards and all that they do for the industry in North America and around the world."
