North American CandE Winners Revealed

Fifty companies were named to the winners list for the 2017 North American Candidate Experience Awards.

The Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, has announced the winners of the 2017 North American Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards. More than 200 companies registered to participate in the 2017 North American Awards program, which ultimately collected the thoughts and experiences of over 180,000 job candidates.

Winners were identified through a blind data analysis based on their job candidates' satisfaction survey scores. To qualify, each company committed to a statistically significant candidate response rate, where the proportion of respondents not hired met or exceeded a set standard. Multiple factors in the data summaries were considered in the final analysis; however, three key questions had a significant impact on determining the winners. These questions focused specifically on the likelihood that the candidate would reapply to the organization, whether or not the candidates would refer other job seekers to the organization and the candidates' overall ranking of their specific candidate experience. The 50 winners are organizations that received the highest positive candidate experience ratings.
