ManpowerGroup Solutions Returns to Support 2016 Candidate Experience Awards for Third Year

World's Largest RPO Provider Helps Talent Board Recognize Candidate Experience Excellence as Global Platinum Sponsor

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 25, 2016) -  Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that ManpowerGroup Solutions will serve as a Global Platinum Sponsor of the 2016 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards for the third consecutive year.

"The candidate experience a company provides to job seekers has a significant impact on its employer brand, reputation with customers and ability to attract and hire the best talent," said Elaine Orler, co-founder and chairman of Talent Board and CEO of Talent Function. "As more employers understand the need to update and optimize their recruiting practices, the Candidate Experience Awards has achieved tremendous growth. We are grateful to organizations like ManpowerGroup Solutions that share our passion to improve the candidate experience. ManpowerGroup Solutions' continued support has been critical to the growth of our global programs, and we are thrilled to work with the company once again to ensure the ongoing success of our global programs."

The CandE Awards aim to recognize exemplary practices in candidate experience, as measured by an evaluation of participating companies recruiting processes and through surveys of their actual job candidates. More than an awards program, the CandE Awards serve to benchmark the tools, technologies and strategies that lead to a positive candidate experience, helping participating organizations and the employer community at large learn what they can do to continually improve.

Starting in North America in 2011, the CandE Awards has since expanded to include programs in the EMEA and APAC regions. As a Global Platinum sponsor, ManpowerGroup Solutions supports all three programs in 2016, helping advance Talent Board's mission to recognize candidate experience excellence around the globe.

"At ManpowerGroup Solutions, we develop innovative workforce solutions that connect jobseekers with meaningful opportunities. We help employers overcome their greatest hiring challenges to find talented individuals who can make a difference in their organizations," said Kate Donovan, senior vice president of ManpowerGroup Solutions and global RPO president. "The key to any successful recruiting strategy is a positive, respectful candidate experience that keeps candidates informed and updated throughout the process. We are excited to work with Talent Board once again to raise awareness of the importance of the candidate experience and recognize the companies that demonstrate a best practice approach."

With the employer survey and candidate survey rounds of the North American CandE Awards now closed, Talent Board is currently evaluating responses to select the companies that exemplify excellence in candidate experience. The winners will be formally announced at the 2016 North American CandE Symposium and Awards Gala, taking place during the Recruiting Trends Conference on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at the Austin Hilton.
