Candidate Experience Awards Debut in the U.K.

London — May 14

The Talent Board, a nonprofit organization focused on facilitating the evolution of the employment candidate experience, announced details of the first U.K. Candidate Experience Awards (CandEs).

Following its North American 2011 awards program, the Talent Board has begun global expansion of the CandEs, strategically developing a corresponding program that addresses cultural nuances of the region.

To support expansion and lead the U.K. program, the Talent Board welcomed a new member, Jeremy Tipper, partner at Talent Collective.

An experienced recruiting professional and recruitment process outsourcing pioneer, Tipper takes special interest in helping employers optimize their talent acquisition processes and advancing the candidate experience.

The CandEs competition consists of three survey rounds designed to recognize organizations that produce outstanding candidate experiences. Round one consists of a multi-dimensional survey, designed to capture and evaluate the nominated company’s recruitment processes and practices impacting the candidate experience.

The submission deadline for this phase of the award process is June 15.

U.K.-based companies that advance in the competition and are recognized as CandE winners will be celebrated at a special ceremony later this year. Participation is confidential and free for employers.
