Although employers increasingly recognize the benefits of providing job applicants with a positive candidate experience, nearly 50 percent of organizations don't collect feedback from applicants about their application process. By not getting insight directly from candidates, employers will continue to be in the dark about their recruiting, screening and hiring practices and will not know which of these processes are working and which are in need of improvement.

During this complimentary webinar hosted by HireRight, Elaine Orler, chairman and founder of the Talent Board and president of Talent Function, joins with Talent Board members Gerry Crispin, principal and chief navigator of CareerXroads, and Ed Newman, vice president of Strategy for iMomentous, to discuss key findings from the 2012 Candidate Experience Awards and benchmarking program. Based on surveys and interviews of North American employers and more than 17,500 job candidates, Orler, Crispin and Newman will share common practices and trends related to the candidate experience.

Attendees will also learn the latest methods that today's forward-thinking companies are using to improve the candidate experience and attract top talent; the social media trends of candidates; and why the candidate experience is crucial in establishing an organization's employment brand. The webinar is also pre-approved for 1.0 general recertification credit hour toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR through the HR Certification Institute.

HR and training and development professionals, business managers and executives interested in learning how they can deliver a more positive candidate experience to their job applicants are encouraged to attend this informative session.
