You do not Own Your Employer Brand Any More

The talent acquisition market has shifted toward the candidate. Today, with social media, candidates have a voice. Discover how to differentiate your company. Benchmark how the candidate perceives his overall experience. Reinforce your employer brand and have positive spillover to employee engagement.

We are an active member of the CandE Canada Council, a part of the Canadian Talent Board. The Talent Board is the first non-profit organization in the industry to give large numbers of companies access to aggregated candidate experience datasets. We support the Talent Acquisition discipline with benchmarks and best practices that support continuous recruiting innovation. The mission is to facilitate the evolution of the employment candidate experience principally through the annual production of The Candidate Experience Awards CandE. 

We help and encourage companies to benchmark and improve their candidate experience. Any corporation that is interested in enhancing the candidate experience they provide will benefit from participating, at no cost, in the benchmark process.
