Candidate Experience Matters

The CandE Awards program has validated that talent acquisition leaders and employers care about all of the stakeholders in the recruiting process. Join us in Fort Worth and meet our 2015 CandE Award Winners and talent acquisition leaders from across the country and various industries to learn from their best practices.

During this three day symposium, there will be keynote addresses from Heath Padgett, Molly Fletcher, and China Gorman, all top HR leaders and influencers, as well as highly informative panel and roundtable discussions. Gather practical tips that you can apply upon your return to your office to improve your company's candidate experience .

With our record breaking 95,000 respondents last year and over 130,000 from nearly 200 companies this year from North America alone, you'll receive extensive data to differentiate your company's "Candidate Experience" and its importance to your company leaders.

Here Are Just A Few Insights From The 2014 Research (2015 Insights Coming!)

Nearly half of all candidates (47.7 percent) had no previous relationship with a company before applying, meaning that the candidate experience is the first exposure they have to a company’s brand and highlighting the need to for employers to get it right.

Company values are crucial to shaping an employer brand; 41.4 percent of candidates stated that the most important marketing material influencing their decision to apply was the company’s values.

Three-quarters (75.4 percent) of candidates said they were never asked about their experience by an employer, highlighting the lag in truly benchmarking how the candidate perceives the overall experience.

With 43 percent of candidates spending 30 minutes or more on the average application, and 10 percent spending an hour or more, time had less of an impact on the candidate experience compared to if the candidate felt they were able to accurately represent their skills and abilities to perform the job.

Employers are winning at candidate experience; almost 70 percent of candidates reported that they would definitely or are likely to apply to the company again.
