SAN FRANCISCO, CA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Sep 21, 2015) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Alexander Mann Solutions, a global provider of talent acquisition and management solutions that drive positive business results, will support the Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards at the Global Platinum level for the second consecutive year.

The CandE Awards were founded in 2011 to help companies better understand the candidate experience and improve talent acquisition practices. Growing exponentially year over year, more than 200 employers and 100,000 employment candidates were surveyed in 2014. As a result of continued interest, Talent Board has expanded the Awards to include programs in North America; Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

"In today's competitive and networked hiring landscape, understanding what a great experience means to the job seeker is invaluable," said Adam Shay, director of Consulting Services at Alexander Mann Solutions. "When organizations deliver a positive and memorable candidate experience, it gives them a tremendous competitive advantage when they look to attract, engage and retain top talent. We look forward to continuing our support of the Candidate Experience Awards as the programs continue to reach more organizations and candidates around the world."

"Since starting the CandE Awards, the recruiting and talent acquisition space has evolved considerably; we rely on the support of companies eager to promote positive candidate experiences aligned to these changes," said Ed Newman, Talent Board co-founder and vice president of Strategy for Phenom People (formerly iMomentous). "Thanks to sponsors like Alexander Mann Solutions, we have been able to grow our programs and celebrate those companies that are changing the face of hiring by recognizing the value of each and every candidate interaction."

The North American program winners will be celebrated at a special awards reception taking place during the Second Annual Candidate Experience Symposium. Featuring the foremost HR and talent acquisition thought leaders along with CandE Award winners and key industry influencers, the Symposium will be held at the Hilton Fort Worth Wednesday, September 30 - Friday, October 2, 2015. Similar events for the EMEA and APAC regional programs are being planned for later this year.
