RR3: The First Candidate Experience Awards – The CandEs!
Elaine Orler, Co-Founder & President, Talent Function
Gerry Crispin, Co-Founder and Chief Navigator, CareerXroads
Ed Newman, The Accidental Entrepreneur, former CEO, The Newman Group
Tuesday, October 4 • 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
Last year’s attendees heard two of the country’s three leading talent acquisition experts, Elaine Orler and Gerry Crispin, debate the value of organizations providing their job candidates with a good application experience. Actually, both agreed it’s really important. This year, they enlisted the third expert, Ed Newman, and decided to do something about it. They formed The Talent Board, a foundation focused on recognizing companies with the best Candidate Experience through its new annual Candidate Experience Awards (CandE, pronounced “Candy”). Using company surveys and interviews, Gerry’s “Secret Shopper” phony applicant technique, and asking job candidates themselves, they chose the first Candy winners – and they’ll reveal them at the conference! Several will be on hand to tell you exactly how they do it so well, and the benefits, so maybe you can do it too, get better candidates and win next year!
