Talent Board Welcomes Video Interviewing Leader Montage as Candidate Experience Awards Supporter

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 25, 2015) -  Today Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, announced that Montage, a leader in purpose-built video interviewing and voice interviewing solutions to the Global 5000, is a Gold Sponsor of the 2015 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards.

"'Experience matters' is our mantra at Montage. As organizations look to recruit, engage and hire top talent, it is critical that they understand how every communication, every touch point and every interaction can make or break the candidate experience," said Kurt Heikkinen, president and CEO of Montage. "We are pleased to be working with Talent Board for a third year to achieve a better understanding of how technology facilitates an improved candidate experience."

The CandE Awards is an annual competition that benchmarks the current state of the candidate experience and celebrates recruiting strategies that provide job seekers with a consistent and positive experience. Since its inception, the CandE Awards has grown significantly, evaluating some 350 companies and more than 150,000 candidates in the North American region alone. The largest survey of its kind, the 2015 CandE Awards includes expanded programs in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), as well as a new launch in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

Gerry Crispin, Talent Board co-founder and principal and chief navigator at CareerXroads, commented, "Montage provides an all-encompassing interviewing solution that takes into account all segments of the working population, by letting employers and job seekers connect using any technology. Their commitment to the candidate experience is evident in their innovative approach to video interviewing technology, diligent research on candidate preferences and the candidate experience provided by their clients. We are thrilled to have Montage as a sponsor for the 2015 CandEs and look forward to working together to further understand recruiting best practices."

The 2015 CandE Awards program is underway; this year's winners will be announced and celebrated at a special event being held on Thursday, October 1, 2015.
