CareerBuilder Promotes Positive Recruiting Practices as 2015 Candidate Experience Awards Supporter

Company to Back Candidate Experience Benchmarking and Awards Program at Global Platinum Level

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 30, 2015) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced CareerBuilder, the global leader in human capital solutions, as a Global Platinum supporter of the 2015 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards.

Companies today face greater competition for top talent than ever before. The candidate experience an organization provides can make all the difference in engaging qualified candidates and building a reputation as an employer of choice. The CandE Awards were founded in 2011 to help companies better understand the candidate experience they provide and learn the best practices for improving this crucial aspect of the hiring process. As the CandE Awards continues to grow, expanding from North America to Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and to the Asia-Pacific (APAC) regions, the support of companies like CareerBuilder is essential to the success of the program.

"As a global HR SaaS provider operating the largest job site in the U.S., CareerBuilder is dedicated to helping job seekers find meaningful employment opportunities and facilitating how employers find their next great hires," said Rosemary Haefner, chief human resources officer of CareerBuilder. "We see firsthand how companies are using software and data to enhance the candidate experience and create more positive, transparent and insightful recruiting processes. This is critical for companies today as they look to build robust, engaged talent pipelines. We are proud to back the efforts of Talent Board in raising awareness of the value of the candidate experience on a global level."

"A positive candidate experience is no longer an option -- as today's job seekers are more informed than ever, and have more channels to share their experiences as a candidate with their peers and the community at large, it has become essential to hiring success," said Gerry Crispin, Talent Board co-founder and principal and co-founder of CareerXroads. "Talent Board's mission is to help more companies understand how their candidate experience measures up against other employers and discover what they can do to transform it for the better. To achieve this goal, we rely on the support of companies like CareerBuilder that share this objective and make the CandE Awards possible."

Talent Board will announce the 2015 CandE Award winners during the Second Annual Candidate Experience Symposium. This three-day event will unite talent acquisition experts, industry influencers, CandE Award winners and top HR leaders for keynote addresses, informative panels and roundtable discussions. Attendees will take away actionable insights to improve the candidate experience at their organizations. Rounding out this year's symposium will be the Fifth Annual CandE Awards Reception and Banquet, scheduled for the evening of Thursday, October 1, 2015.
