Talent Board Welcomes Peoplefluent as Gold Sponsor of 2013 Candidate Experience Awards

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2013) -  Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of quality candidate experience, today welcomed Peoplefluent, a leading provider of talent acquisition and management solutions designed to support the entire workforce, as a gold level sponsor of the 2013 North American Candidate Experience Awards (CandE Awards). A first-time sponsor of the awards and benchmarking program, Peoplefluent delivers cloud-based talent suite software with embedded social collaboration, video, mobile and workforce analytics designed to empower the candidate experience and improve hiring decision-making. 

Now in its third year, the CandE Awards work to measure, track and promote the candidate experience to benefit organizations seeking to attract, recruit and hire top talent. Emphasizing the significance of the employment brand, the annual awards and benchmarking program recognizes and honors those organizations that provide a stellar candidate experience. The 2013 CandE Awards are continuing to advance the importance of the candidate experience and offer participating companies improved tools to benchmark candidate experience against their peers.

"As we continue to expand the Candidate Experience Awards, we depend on the support of companies like Peoplefluent that are so dedicated to promoting and honoring great candidate experience," commented Gerry Crispin, industry expert, Talent Board co-founder and Chief Navigator of CareerXroads. "We are thrilled to welcome Peoplefluent as a sponsor this year."

The CandE Awards program includes three survey rounds that evaluate recruitment practices throughout the entire hiring process. Now closed for 2013, Round One consists of a multi-dimensional survey designed to capture the nominated company recruitment practices related to the candidate experience. Companies that completed the first round process will receive a copy of the Employer Benchmark data. Those that met the standard for candidate experience are currently participating in Round Two, which surveys a random sampling of each company's 2013 job candidates. Companies that meet the criteria for both rounds will be recognized as CandE Award winners, while high scoring companies will be advanced to the final round which determines areas of distinction. With Distinction honorees will be celebrated, along with all CandE Award winners, at this year's HR Technology Conference and Expo in Las Vegas this October, where Peoplefluent will also be a sponsor and exhibitor.

Kevin Grossman, director of Product and Content Marketing for Peoplefluent, noted, "Positive candidate experience is a key component of the Peoplefluent vision for talent acquisition and management. Our collaborative video and mobile cloud-based services enable large, complex organizations highly configurable, scalable solutions without compromising the experience of the individual candidate, whether external or internal. We are very excited to join the Talent Board's mission and support the third annual Candidate Experience Awards as they work to recognize those companies offering outstanding experiences."
