Company Continues to Champion Positive Recruiting Practices

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2017) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Shaker Virtual Job Tryout® (VJT) is a Global Platinum sponsor of the 2017 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards.

The annual awards and benchmarking programs offer employers in North America (NAM), Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC), a risk-free and confidential opportunity to learn how their organization's candidate experience practices compare to those of their peers and obtain feedback from their candidates, while gaining insight into the latest tools and strategies for optimizing the recruiting process.

"Shaker VJT technology combines selection science with predictive modeling to help recruiters improve the way they interact with and hire talent," said Marc Wenzel, vice president of business development for Shaker VJT. "As advocates for the value and importance of the candidate experience, working with Talent Board is a natural extension of our mission. The CandEs have created a community of interest for improving talent acquisition and we are honored to foster the sharing and learning this initiative stimulates."

Registration for the 2017 CandE Awards programs is now open. Employers of all sizes are welcome to register for any and all regional programs that correspond with their hiring efforts. After submitting a one-time annual registration fee and completing the registration process, participating organizations will go through two rounds of data collection and evaluation of their candidate experience practices. Top-rated organizations will be recognized publicly as CandE Award winners.

Gerry Crispin, board member of Talent Board and principal and chief navigator at CareerXroads, shared, "Shaker VJT continues to dedicate time and resources to improving the candidate experience and supporting Talent Board's efforts.
