LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 02/27/14 --  The Candidate
Experience Awards, a non-profit organisation focused on advancing the
employment candidate experience, announced the winners of the second
annual U.K. Candidate Experience Awards (known as "the CandE
Awards"). Fifteen companies were honoured and celebrated as winners
at the second annual CandE Awards Announcement and Reception for
upholding a high standard for how they engage and treat job
"Positive recruiting and hiring practices are key differentiators for
employers working to engage and retain job candidates, and this
year's programme proved just how important the experience is to
employers and candidates alike in the current job market," remarked
Elaine Orler, chairman of the Talent Board, founding organisation of
The Candidate Experience Awards. "We saw tremendous interest in the
2013 Candidate Experience Awards, collecting responses from 29
companies and nearly 3000 job candidates who applied for positions at
those companies. We are thrilled to honour the winning organisations
and recognise their continued commitment to the candidates."  
Open to employers that recruit in the British employment marketplace,
the U.K. CandE Awards consists of three rounds of review designed to
identify organisations that meet candidate expectations and provide
value to job seekers throughout the talent acquisition process. All
participating organisations receive benchmarking data that will allow
them to compare their candidate experience against an aggregate of
all the entrants. 
Organisations that met criteria for a positive candidate experience
in the employer and candidate survey round of the evaluation process
were awarded a "CandE Award Winner" designation stamp. Those
identified implementing innovative or stand out practices throughout
the recruiting cycle were named "With Distinction." All honourees
were celebrated at a special ceremony held at The Brewery in London
on 25 February, 2014.
