Talent Board Announces Winners of 2022 Global Candidate Experience Awards

The 2023 CandE Benchmark Research Program will open in January for companies to participate again! Learn more about the program here

The 2022 CandE benchmark research competitive analysis is done and the CandE Award Winners have been determined!

This year recruiting and hiring has never been more difficult and competitive. Even with hiring cooling in the tech sector, there are still not enough interested and qualified candidates for the number of job openings across industries. 

Unfortunately candidate resentment is slightly down in North America – the percentage of candidates who said they had a poor experience and will never apply again or refer others – but it’s still at one of the highest levels we’ve seen in the 11 years of conducting this research. And resentment is up in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); Asia-Pacific (APAC); and Latin America.

The good news is that there were more global companies with above average candidate ratings this year than last. Today, Talent Board revealed the 62 unique companies from around the world recognized for candidate experience excellence as winners of the 2022 Global Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards

This year 150 companies hiring around the world registered to participate in the 2022 Global CandE Awards Benchmark Research Program, which ultimately collected the thoughts and experiences of nearly 200,000 job candidates. The largest study of its kind, the Talent Board benchmark research has evaluated responses from over 1,350 of global employers and over 1.4 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:

  1. The candidates’ overall ranking of their candidate experience
  2. Whether or not they would reapply to the organization in the future
  3. Whether or not they would refer other job seekers to the organization in the future
  4. 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 62 unique organizations big and small across multiple industries received the CandE Awards due to having the highest positive candidate experience ratings in North America, EMEA, APAC, and Latin America. We continue to see an increased focus on Candidate Experience and the value it brings to an organization.
