OneWire Sponsors the 2012 Candidate Experience Awards

Company Demonstrates Commitment to Enhancing the Candidate Experience Through Sponsorship

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2012) - OneWire®, where finance professionals get hired, today announced it is sponsoring the 2012 North American Candidate Experience Awards (CandEs). The CandEs, a competition that enables any company to benchmark and improve its candidate experience, is conducted by the Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience. OneWire is supporting this benchmarking and awards program as a silver-level sponsor.

OneWire has long been committed to improving the candidate experience, as evidenced by its candidate platform, which enables hundreds of thousands of job seekers to have more control over their job search. OneWire's interface easily connects finance candidates to hiring employers and gives them the power to build and manage profiles, control who can or can't see them, search for relevant job opportunities and share job postings with their friends. Moreover, OneWire's platform gives candidates full visibility into the recruiting process, eliminating the 'black holes' that occur when candidates are left in the dark wondering about the status of their applications.

"As OneWire seeks to improve the candidate experience for our community of finance professionals and eliminate the candidate black hole, our goals perfectly align with those of the Talent Board," said OneWire president and co-founder Brin McCagg. "We are excited and honored to support the organization's Candidate Experience Awards, which will once again recognize the industry-leading companies that provide exceptional candidate experiences and draw attention to the importance of improving the recruiting process."

"Both employers and candidates play an important role in creating a positive experience and, through the CandE awards, we gain valuable insight into what the expectations are and how they can be met effectively," noted Elaine Orler, Talent Board chairman and president of Talent Function Group. "The Talent Board and Candidate Experience Award sponsors are truly committed to helping employers understand how their recruiting, screening and onboarding practices not only impact employment brand, but also their bottom line. We're delighted to acknowledge the sponsorship of OneWire, a company that is already working to enhance the candidate experience through the technology and education it provides."
