TMP Worldwide Supports Talent Board and Candidate Experience Awards as Global Underwriter

Talent Acquisition Technology Leader Shows Commitment to Improving Candidate Experience Around the World

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 28, 2016) -  Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that TMP Worldwide, a global innovator in talent acquisition, will support the 2016 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards as a Global Underwriter.

"Talent Board's mission is to enable more employers around the world to better understand the candidate experience they provide their job seekers and improve their recruiting practices," said Gerry Crispin, Talent Board co-founder and principal and co-founder of CareerXroads. "TMP will be instrumental in helping us achieve this goal. As one of the most pioneering companies in the talent acquisition space today, TMP delivers advanced software, strategies and creative solutions to help employers elevate their candidate experience globally. We are thrilled to receive TMP's support and excited to work with a company so clearly dedicated to transforming the way employers connect with their candidates."

The CandE Awards have grown considerably in recent years since the inaugural North American program in 2011, now including programs in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region and the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. More than just a competition, the CandE Awards enables participating employers to benchmark their candidate experience practices against their peers, based on surveys of their own job candidates, and learn crucial insights on how to enhance their recruiting processes. In 2015 alone, the global programs collected data from more than 250 companies and survey responses from over 150,000 of their candidates.

As the CandE Award programs continue to attract interest from more businesses seeking to better measure and improve their candidate experience, Talent Board is committed to benchmarking candidate experience practices from around the world. To do so, the organization relies on the support of companies like TMP to help drive this continued expansion and ensure more global companies can participate and learn how they can deliver a more positive candidate experience. Access to Talent Board Benchmark Research will remain complimentary in 2016 for all company participants due to the generous support of TMP Worldwide.

"TMP Worldwide is committed to developing innovative technology to help companies transform how they attract and engage talent, enabling them to convey their employment brand, highlight their cultures and elevate the candidate experience," said Matt Lamphear, Executive Vice President, Digital Products and Strategy of TMP. "As the candidate experience continues to become an increasingly critical aspect of a company's ability to hire the best talent, we are eager to work with Talent Board to support the CandE Awards and bring much-needed attention to what is often an overlooked aspect of the hiring process."
