Talent Board Announces HireVue as Global Platinum Sponsor

Global Digital Interviewing Leader Supports Candidate Experience Awards and Mission for Third Consecutive Year

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2013) - The Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience, today announced that HireVue, provider of an amazing new way to interview -- on demand, will support the Candidate Experience Awards (CandE Awards) as a Global Platinum Sponsor. This sponsorship represents three years of continued commitment from HireVue toward the Talent Board's mission.

Since its inception in 2011, the CandE Awards have served to elevate the importance a positive candidate experience plays in attracting top candidates, by recognizing those organizations that strive to provide a positive, transparent applicant process. The results of the 2012 CandE Awards established that more than half of candidates surveyed are likely or very likely to tell their inner circle of friends about their experience, whether it is positive (73.5 percent) or negative (60.7 percent), highlighting how candidate experience can create promoters or detractors. Now in its third year, the 2013 CandE Awards intend to bring even greater awareness to the benefits of creating employer brand promoters by recognizing companies that treat candidates with respect, while offering improved tools for companies to benchmark candidate experience against their peers.

"With more organizations realizing the tremendous value in providing all candidates with a positive, rewarding and insightful candidate experience, it is no wonder that the CandE Awards have achieved such rapid growth within three short years," said Mark Newman, founder and CEO of HireVue. "HireVue has reimagined the interview process and candidate experience through our innovative digital interviewing solutions. The majority of interviews done on HireVue are done off standard business hours, and almost 30% of our interviews are conducted via one of our Candidate Mobile Apps. As our goals closely align with those of the Talent Board, in terms of a shared commitment to improve recruiting, it is a great honor to once again support the CandE Awards and work together to elevate the value of a positive candidate experience."

The CandE Awards program consists of three survey rounds, with the first round opening this spring. Round one is comprised of a multi-dimensional survey designed to capture and evaluate a company's recruitment processes and practices that impact the candidate experience. Companies that complete the first round submission process receive a complimentary Employer Benchmark Report, and those that meet the standard for candidate experience are invited to participate in round two of the competition, the candidate survey. Round two takes the survey to the candidate through random sampling of the company's 2013 candidates. Companies that meet criteria for both rounds one and two will be awarded a "CandE 2013 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.

"HireVue has been an invaluable partner in helping us promote the CandE Awards and evangelize the need for organizations to reinvigorate the recruiting process," said Elaine Orler, chairman and co-founder of the Talent Board. "We are incredibly grateful to HireVue for their continued support and allegiance in our mission, as we welcome them as a returning founding sponsor. With our sponsors' support, we are confident that the 2013 CandE Awards will be our most successful year yet."
