Talent Board Announces PeopleFluent as Global Platinum Sponsor of 2014 Candidate Experience Awards

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2014) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience, today announced PeopleFluent, a leading social human capital management technology company, as a Global Platinum Sponsor of the Candidate Experience Awards (CandE Awards). This is the second year in a row that PeopleFluent lends its support to Talent Board's mission.

Since 2011, the CandE Awards annual benchmarking and recognition program has worked to assess the current state of recruiting practices in order to identify and celebrate those strategies that provide job candidates with a positive experience. The largest program of its kind, the CandE Awards continues to grow and expand each year, from 24 winners in the inaugural event in 2011, to recognizing 64 organizations as winners in the 2013 program.

Kevin Grossman, director of Product and Content Marketing at PeopleFluent, commented, "The Candidate Experience Awards provide added insight that can help organizations tackle the delicate balance between giving candidates the attention they deserve, and efficiently managing the talent acquisition process. Also dedicated to helping organizations enhance the recruiting experience, PeopleFluent developed the innovative Recruiting Mirror solution, which infuses video, social and mobile components to put more focus on engaging talent while improving hiring outcomes."

In 2013, the CandE Awards evaluated survey responses from 46,000 candidates who applied to approximately 95 forward-thinking companies. Round 1 of the 2014 awards program recently closed and is expected to see more applying companies than ever before. Talent Board attributes the program's continued expansion to the growing importance that both companies and candidates place on the candidate experience.

Gerry Crispin, Talent Board member and principal and co-founder of CareerXroads, commented, "Social technologies continue to redefine the way organizations manage human capital initiatives across the workforce. We are thrilled to welcome PeopleFluent back as a sponsor of the CandE Awards, and we look forward to advancing talent-focused recruiting processes with their support."
