Talent Board Recaps Successful Workshops and Introduces New Podcast

Expanded Candidate Experience Workshops Series Focuses on Latest Recruiting and Hiring Trends; The CandEs Shop Talk Podcast Now Live

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 20, 2016) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience, today announced details of its 2016 Candidate Experience workshop series and new podcast, The CandEs Shop Talk.

Best known for the annual Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards and Benchmark Program, this is the second year that Talent Board is offering its Candidate Experience workshops across North America and Canada. The half-day Candidate Experience workshop format includes a keynote presentation featuring previous CandE Award winners in addition to networking opportunities and tabletop discussions.

One recent event, hosted by back-to-back CandE Award winner Delta Air Lines, had more than 100 registrants from a number of multi-national corporations. One of the largest workshops to date, this event helped shine a light on best practices in talent acquisition as well as the relationship between candidate experience and the business bottom line.

Glen Johnson, director - Talent Acquisition for Delta, commented, "We were proud to host Talent Board's CandE workshop. The event generated a lot of interest and the attendees represented incredible brands from around the country who are focused on improving the experience their candidates have when pursuing opportunities within their respective organizations."

Each event is limited in size and offers an interactive look at recruiting practices; registration is complimentary for talent acquisition and recruiting professionals. Upcoming events are scheduled to take place in Gaithersburg, Md.; Boston; New York City and Toronto.

In addition to the workshops, Talent Board recently introduced an additional resource, The CandEs Shop Talk podcast. Hosted by Kevin Grossman, Talent Board vice president - North American Program, each episode explores the business impact of HR, talent acquisition, recruiting technology and improving the candidate experience. Featured guests include CandE Award winners, talent acquisition leaders, industry influencers and technology providers.

"Now in our fifth year, the Candidate Experience Awards and Benchmark Program continues to expand our offerings to include resources developed specifically for the talent acquisition community," said Grossman. "Interest in the candidate experience grows with each year of new Talent Board research, prompting the need to provide increased access to information about best practices and industry trends. The workshops and podcast both exemplify the Talent Board's mission and commitment to innovating and being a critical resource in talent acquisition space."
