10 Reasons Why You Should Participate in the 2022 CandE Benchmark Research Program

The 2022 CandE Benchmark Research Program is now open through August 31. Benchmark your candidate experience today!

It’s been over 10 years since Talent Board and the Candidate Experience Awards were founded. Since the very beginning, the CandEs mission has focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience with industry benchmarks that highlight accountability, fairness and business impact in North America, EMEA, APAC, and Latin America. To date we’ve benchmarked over 1,200 companies and have surveyed over 1.25 million candidates. 

Every year we work with hundreds of employers big and small across industries from around the world to benchmark their candidate experience. We help employers collect their own anonymous candidate experience feedback and sentiment and then compare them against all the other employers in our annual benchmark research program. This in turn helps HR and recruiting teams understand that the long-held beliefs of treating every person well who expresses an interest in working for an employer is not only the right thing to do, but a compelling business necessity.

Every year our benchmark research uncovers and publishes the recruiting, hiring, and candidate experience insights that employers need to know in order to improve and differentiate their own candidate experience.

There are changes that impact your business every year (a global pandemic, economic changes that impact your industry, changes on your leadership team, changes on your recruiting team), and these in turn impact recruiting, hiring and retention at your company. Understanding where and how your recruiting process and candidate experience impacts your business and brand every single year, as well as receiving benchmarks on how your company compares to other companies big and small across industries, are invaluable in an always competitive hiring landscape.
