SAN FRANCISCOJuly 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced Monster, a leading solution for connecting people and jobs, as a North American Platinum sponsor for this year’s 2018 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards global benchmark research program.

The annual Talent Board recruiting and candidate experience benchmarking and awards program offer employers in North America (NAM), Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) a risk-free and confidential opportunity to learn how their organization’s candidate experience practices compare to those of their peers. Through the program employers are also able to obtain feedback from their candidates, while gaining insight into the latest tools and strategies for optimizing the recruiting process.

“At Monster, we see it as our responsibility to empower candidates throughout their job search,” said Jonathan Beamer, Chief Marketing Officer, Monster. “By sponsoring the 2018 Candidate Experience Awards, we’re celebrating the employers that recognize the importance of putting the candidate experience first.”

The largest study of its kind, the Talent Board benchmark research program has evaluated responses from hundreds of global employers and nearly 750,000 job seekers since 2011. To qualify, each company has to commit to a statistically significant candidate response, and the proportion of respondents not hired also had to exceed a set standard. Registration for the 2018 CandE program is now open.
