SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2014) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Jobvite, the complete recruiting solution serving the world's fastest-growing companies -- including Twitter, Starbucks and Zappos -- will serve as a Platinum Sponsor of the 2014 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards.
"The CandE Awards have been instrumental in highlighting the need for a more transparent recruiting process that respects candidates and keeps them informed and engaged," said Dan Finnigan, president and CEO of Jobvite. "Jobvite is committed to providing innovative technology that enhances the recruitment process and fuels our customers' growth. As talent becomes scarce in a shrinking labor market, it's more important than ever for companies to create a positive candidate experience and improve their time-to-hire. We encourage recruiters to be transparent and authentic, so it's only natural that we sought to support Talent Board's mission as a CandE Awards sponsor."
Since the inaugural CandE Awards in 2011, this annual benchmarking and recognition program has assessed the current state of recruiting practices, with the goal of identifying and celebrating the companies whose strategies provide job candidates with a positive experience. Jobvite understands the importance of offering companies the necessary tools to attract and engage candidates in a seamless and positive manner. As a platinum sponsor of the program, Jobvite recognizes and applauds companies worldwide that strive to offer candidates the best possible experience from start to finish, furthering the company's mission.
"As the provider of innovative recruiting technology and social solutions that facilitate the recruitment process for the employer and applicant alike, Jobvite shows its commitment to recognizing excellence in candidate experience," said Elaine Orler, chairman and co-founder of Talent Board. "We are very grateful for the company's support as a Platinum Sponsor and look forward to working together to further enhance the role of candidate experience in successful talent acquisition."
The largest program of its kind, the CandE Awards continues to attract an increasing number of participants each year, and has grown from recognizing 24 winners in the inaugural event in 2011, to 64 organizations as winners in the 2013 program. In 2013, the CandE Awards evaluated survey responses from 46,000 candidates who applied to approximately 95 forward-thinking companies. More than 170 companies are currently registered to participate in the 2014 program. Talent Board attributes the program's continued expansion to the growing importance that both companies and candidates place on the candidate experience.
