Olivia by Paradox Supports 2018 Talent Board Candidate Experience Awards as Global Underwriter

Candidate Experience Awards Recognizes Organizations That Deliver Exceptional Candidate Experience

SAN FRANCISCOJune 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced Paradox, the creators of the artificial intelligence (AI) assistant for recruiting called Olivia, has become a Global Underwriter for this year’s 2018 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards global benchmark research program.

“Communication and feedback continue to be an ongoing differentiator for employers when it comes to improving the candidate experience,” said Debbie McGrath, founder and chief instigator of “Exciting new AI recruiting products like Olivia by Paradox help companies improve candidate communication from before people even apply, filling a long-time career site communications gap in the hiring process. We welcome Paradox as one of our generous Global Underwriter sponsors that help make the Candidate Experience Awards happen.”

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 and obtain feedback from their candidates, while gaining insight into the latest tools and strategies for optimizing the recruiting process.

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.

“Paradox is leading innovations in AI to improve the candidate and recruiter experience, delivering a 1:1 personalized and high touch engagement at scale,” said Aaron Matos, Founder/CEO of Paradox. “The Talent Board’s dedication to perfecting the candidate experience aligns with our mission to provide organizations with best-in-class assistive intelligent technology to help achieve this vision, and we are excited to once again partner with the 2018 CandE Awards.”
