SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2015) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Phenom People (formerly iMomentous), revolutionizing the efficiency, effectiveness and experience of engaging and acquiring the right candidates with the industry's first Talent Relationship Marketing (TRM) platform, will support the 2015 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards as a Program Underwriter.

Working with the CandE Awards since 2012, this marks the first year Phenom People joins on a global level, as Talent Board expands beyond North America to include EMEA and APAC programs. Through the annual CandE Awards, Talent Board provides all participating organizations with access to aggregated candidate experience datasets. In addition, the award offers the unique opportunity to recognize those employers who meet and exceed the standards set for the candidate experience in each region.

"Talent Relationship Marketing is about promoting a positive candidate experience using predictive intelligence and data science. We give companies around the world more efficient ways to market career opportunities and recruit the perfect candidates," said Mahe Bayireddi, CEO and co-founder, Phenom People. "We have worked alongside and supported the CandE Awards for the last few years and look forward to continuing to help Talent Board expand the program to reach organizations and help them better understand and improve their talent acquisition practices."

"Over the last few years, we have seen the candidate experience grow from something companies want to do well to something companies need to do well in order to attract and retain today's top talent. Through the CandE Awards programs, Talent Board gives employers the chance to pause and reflect on their corporate hiring strategies in order to create awareness within their organization and the industry at large," said Gerry Crispin, Talent Board co-founder and principal and co-founder of CareerXroads. "We are extremely grateful to our repeat supporters like Phenom People, who have helped us establish and grow the CandE Awards to reach across the globe."

Winners of the 2015 North American CandE Awards will be announced during the Fifth Annual CandE Awards Reception and Banquet, which will be held on Thursday, October 1, 2015. The awards ceremony will cap off the Second Annual Candidate Experience Symposium, taking place Tuesday, September 29 - Thursday, October 1, 2015 at the Hilton Fort Worth.
