The Talent Board Welcomes JIBE as Sponsor of the Candidate Experience Awards

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 30, 2012) - The Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience, today announced that JIBE, Inc., a software company that provides consumer-facing recruiting solutions to enterprises, joins the growing list of 2012 Candidate Experience Awards (CandEs) sponsors. A first-time sponsor, JIBE is a mobile, social and cloud recruiting technology innovator that refines the application process to facilitate more effective communication between jobseekers, references and employers.

"As more companies recognize the impact that candidate experience has on their employment brand and overall company success, the CandEs have been experiencing an outpouring of support in their second year," commented Gerry Crispin, industry expert, Talent Board member and Chief Navigator of CareerXroads. "We welcome JIBE and thank the company for its commitment to elevating and improving the candidate experience through both the CandEs and the innovative recruiting solutions it provides."

Designed to recognize organizations that produce outstanding candidate experiences, the CandEs consist of three survey rounds that capture and evaluate employers' recruitment processes and practices through the entire recruitment cycle and candidate experience. With the first round now closed for North American employers, round two includes surveying a random sampling of the companies' 2012 candidates. Companies that meet criteria for both rounds one and two will be awarded a "CandE Award Winner" designation stamp. High scoring companies will be advanced to the final round where they will be interviewed by the CandE judging panel to determine areas of distinction. All organizations that have completed first round submissions will receive a complimentary candidate experience Employer Benchmarking Report. North American "With Distinction" honorees will be celebrated, along with all CandE winners, at the 2012 HR Technology Conference in Chicago this October.

Joe Essenfeld, CEO at JIBE, commented, "JIBE's focus on the job application process provides jobseekers and employers with a seamless recruiting experience. Through JIBE's recruitment cloud, employers attract, engage and monitor talent while creating a high-quality candidate experience. We're honored to be working with the Talent Board as they honor those who understand the significance of empowering candidates with the information they need to put their best foot forward and the resources that help them do it easily."
