Candidate Experience Workshops: Talent Board 2016 Series Explores Improving Recruiting for Candidates

Organization to Host Free, In-Depth Workshops in Cities Across the U.S. and Canada

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2016) -  Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced the launch of Candidate Experience 101 Workshops, a series of half-day workshop courses to provide participants with research insights and best practices to improve the candidate experience at their organizations.

"More companies today recognize the many benefits of providing their job applicants with a more transparent, personalized and efficient application process," said Elaine Orler, Talent Board co-founder and chairman, and CEO of Talent Function. "They also understand that a positive candidate experience is no longer a 'nice to have' option; it has become a critical component of an organization's ability to attract, engage and hire the best talent possible to grow their businesses. We are thrilled to launch this year's series of Candidate Experience workshops for employers throughout the U.S. and Canada. We're eager to share our in-depth knowledge of what it takes to deliver a positive and rewarding candidate experience."

The organization behind the Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards, Talent Board has gained critical insight into the candidate experience and the business of recruiting. HR and talent acquisition teams increasingly need this competitive insight to improve the candidate experience and hire top candidates. The Candidate Experience 101 Workshops provide the knowledge and proven strategies to enhance the entire recruiting continuum and leave candidates, whether hired or not, with a positive impression of the company. At a time when candidates are more likely to share their recruiting experiences, both good and bad, with their close peers and the larger social media community, the need to take charge of the candidate experience is a pressing one.

Free for all HR, talent acquisition and recruiting professionals, the Talent Board half-day workshops deliver an in-depth lesson on how to create an exceptional candidate experience. Each workshop includes a keynote presentation or panel discussion featuring prior CandE Award winners, interactive table discussions and an overview of the CandE Award program. In addition, attendees will have ample opportunities to network with their peers and learn about the strategies they are using to enhance the candidate experience.

Upcoming Candidate Experience 101 workshops will take place in:

  • Santa Barbara, Calif. on Thursday, February 11, 2016
  • Dallas, Texas on Tuesday, February 23, 2016
  • Bellevue, Wash. on Tuesday, March 8, 2016

  • Atlanta, Ga. on Wednesday, March 16, 2016
  • Milwaukee, Wis. on Tuesday, April 12, 2016
