SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14, 2023 -- Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today revealed the 60 unique companies from around the world to be recognized for candidate experience excellence as winners of the 2023 Global Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards.
This year 140 companies hiring around the world registered to participate in the 2023 Global CandE Awards Benchmark Research Program, which ultimately collected the thoughts and experiences of nearly 240,000 job candidates. The largest study of its kind, the Talent Board benchmark research has evaluated responses from nearly 1,500 global employers and over 1.6 million job seekers since 2011.
Winners were identified through a comprehensive 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 who were not hired met or exceeded a set standard. The final analysis included four key questions that had a significant impact on determining the winners:
The candidates' overall ranking of their candidate experience
Whether or not they would reapply to the organization in the future
Whether or not they would refer other job seekers to the organization in the future
And how the candidates would change their business relationship status with the organization going forward based on their experience
The above analysis resulted in a final CandE score for each participating organization. This year 60 unique organizations big and small across multiple industries received the CandE Awards due to having the highest positive candidate experience ratings in North America; Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); Asia-Pacific (APAC); and Latin America. Talent Board continues to see an increased focus on Candidate Experience and the value it brings to an organization.
