SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 18, 2016) - Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and data benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Montage, the leader in purpose-built video interviewing technology solutions for the Global 5000, is a Gold sponsor of the 2016 Candidate Experience Awards.

"The quality of a candidate's recruitment experience is what the very best employers strive for, and it is what the Candidate Experience Awards celebrate. That is why we are proud to sponsor this awards program again for our fourth year," said Kurt Heikkinen, president and CEO of Montage Talent. "And the measure of a candidate's experience in the digital era comes down to every interaction with the company, each click within our video platform, and every conversation with our support team. Our passion for creating a delightful experience during every interview for every candidate aligns perfectly with Talent Board, their research and best practice findings."

Each year, the Candidate Experience Awards and benchmarking program seeks to collect the experiences of job candidates, identify best recruiting practices and recognize the employers who demonstrate exemplary processes. The first program of its kind, the CandE Awards have grown considerably in recent years, due to the support of likeminded organizations such as Montage that are committed to helping employers improve the candidate experience they provide their job seekers.

In 2015 alone, the now global CandE Awards collected data from more than 150,000 job candidates who applied to more than 250 participating companies. As the program continues to grow in 2016, Montage's support will be instrumental in increasing participation among employers and candidates for what is expected to be another record year for the CandE Awards.

"An authentic, positive, and insightful connection is key to an effective interview experience between employer and candidate," said Elaine Orler, co-founder and chairman of Talent Board and CEO of Talent Function. "In delivering their next-generation interviewing technology, Montage helps companies transform the candidate experience into a virtual, dynamic, two-way conversation. We are thrilled to welcome Montage back as a supporter of the 2016 CandE Awards, and look forward to working together to further improve the candidate experience."
