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. Come and meet our 2014 CandE Award Winners and talent acquisition leaders from across the country and various industries to learn from their best practices.

During this one day symposium, there will be keynote addresses from 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 more than 46,000 respondents last year and trending even higher this year, you'll receive rich data to differentiate you company's "Candidate Experience" and its importance to your company leaders.

Here Are Just A Few Tidbits From The 2013 Research

Of the candidates who responded in 2013, 80 percent were not hired.

A total of 59.5 percent of candidates have some relationship with the employer at the onset, indicating a clear initial pre-disposition toward the employer and suggesting that positive association is the employer’s to lose.

Winners of the 2013 CandE Awards were more likely than non-winners to set expectations for the amount of time it would take to apply, include screening questions and ask candidates for feedback on the process.

Nearly all candidates with a positive experience (96.9 percent) would refer someone to apply again, while 33.2 percent of those with a negative experience would still refer others, suggesting that some candidates will rise above their own experience and recognize the value a job might offer someone else.
