Talent Board Announces Greenhouse as Global Platinum Sponsor of 2016 Candidate Experience Awards

Greenhouse to Help Talent Board Recognize and Promote Candidate Experience Best Practices Worldwide

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 7, 2016) -  Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Greenhouse Software, the leading designer of recruiting and onboarding software, will support the 2016 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards as a Global Platinum sponsor.

"Six years of research data validates that a positive and rewarding candidate experience can be a critical differentiator," said Elaine Orler, co-founder and chairman of Talent Board and CEO of Talent Function. "This research is possible because of the generous donations provided by sponsors like Greenhouse. We're delighted to acknowledge Greenhouse as one of our 2016 Platinum sponsors and excited to work together to raise awareness of the value of a positive candidate experience."

As a Global Platinum sponsor, Greenhouse supports the Talent Board's mission to help employers around the world benchmark their recruiting practices, understand how their own job applicants rate their candidate experience and identify the strategies that can improve the process. With the CandE Awards now extending beyond the original North American program to include programs in the EMEA and APAC regions, Greenhouse's support will be crucial in the programs' success and helping to uncover the leading candidate experience trends and best practices in each region and identify those employers offering exemplary practices.

"Talent Board has done some incredible work in bringing attention to the role that the candidate experience plays in talent acquisition, while celebrating the companies that get it right," said Daniel Chait, CEO of Greenhouse. "As Greenhouse's mission is to help employers overcome recruiting challenges to create a more efficient hiring process, it was only natural that we work together to extend the reach of the programs to more companies looking to benchmark and improve their recruiting processes. We are thrilled to support the 2016 CandE Awards and promote the benefits of a superior candidate experience."

Now in its sixth year, the CandE Awards continues to achieve robust growth each year. The 2015 program proved to be the biggest yet, collecting more than 130,000 surveys from candidates eager to share their experiences. The three global CandE Awards programs are currently underway and expected to attract even more candidate responses, with the companies selected as CandE Award winners to be announced later this year.
