CandE Award Winners

2021 North American Winners

Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, congratulates the 48 winners of the 2021 North American Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards. Talent Board conducts a comprehensive evaluation and data analysis that consists of an employer survey and a targeted candidate survey.

This year 48 winners were found to provide over tens of thousands of job candidates an exemplary candidate experience as rated by the candidates themselves across these four key data points:

  • A very positive overall candidate experience rating
  • An extremely likely to apply again candidate rating
  • An extremely likely to refer others candidate rating
  • And the fact that candidates said they were willing to increase their business relationship with the employer via applying again, referring others and making purchases when applicable
