HireVue to Support Talent Board's Candidate Experience Awards for Sixth Consecutive Year

Original Sponsor Returns as Global Underwriter to Help Raise Awareness of the Importance of a Positive Candidate Experience

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 27, 2016) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that HireVue, a provider of team acceleration software designed to help companies build and coach the world's best teams, will support the Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards as a Global Underwriter and provide the digital technology platform used to analyze and evaluate the companies participating in this year's program.

"Providing job seekers with an enhanced candidate experience -- from first interaction through onboarding -- is essential for companies to attract, engage and retain the best talent," said Elaine Orler, co-founder and chairman of Talent Board and CEO of Talent Function. "HireVue clearly understands this mission, as demonstrated by their ongoing support of the Candidate Experience Awards. A sponsor since the beginning, the HireVue team has been integral to the success, growth and global expansion of the program. We are grateful to collaborate once again to recognize the best practices that lead to candidate experience excellence around the world."

Now in its sixth year, the CandE Awards programs honor the companies that provide an exemplary candidate experience, as measured by an evaluation of their recruiting practices and through surveys by their own job applicants. Although the CandE Awards program is a competition, it enables any company to benchmark their candidate experience against their peers and learn what they can do to improve. As more companies worldwide recognize the importance of the candidate experience to their overall talent strategies, the CandE Awards have grown considerably, expanding beyond the original North American program to include awards programs in the APAC and EMEA regions.

"HireVue is on a mission to elevate the candidate experience by working with companies to evolve the entrenched yet broken ways of attracting and hiring talent today," said Mark Newman, founder and chief customer officer, HireVue. "We are proud to support the Candidate Experience Awards in its mission to recognize these companies committed to treating candidates well and putting our digital video platform to work for Talent Board to make the 2016 CandE Awards programs the most successful to date."

The 2016 CandE Awards programs are shaping up to be the biggest yet, with its highest number of participating companies and the collection of a record number of candidate surveys. The deadline for participating in the North American program is now closed; companies in APAC and EMEA had until October 15, 2016 to complete the employer and candidate survey rounds. Awards judges are using the HireVue platform to conduct and evaluate employee surveys, helping them to better understand each participating company's candidate experience processes.

The winners of the North American program will be announced at an awards gala taking place on November 15, 2016 during the Recruiting Trends Conference at the Hilton Austin.
