In preparation for its 2017 North American Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards Symposium in Nashville, Tennessee on Oct. 2, Talent Board recently shared the full event agenda featuring renowned emcee Carmen Hudson and breakout sessions.
"I firmly believe that focusing on the candidate experience is the hallmark of a high-performing talent acquisition organization,” Hudson, a principal at Recruiting Toolbox, said. “In my experience, companies that measure and improve the candidate experience also significantly improve the overall recruiting process and hiring results — the CandE Symposium and Awards Gala will offer attendees a closer look at achieving this."
After four morning and mid-day themed work sessions, Olympian Shannon Miller will present a keynote speech complete with a question-and-answer session. Afternoon offerings will include a panel discussion and more, followed by a networking reception, dinner, the awards ceremony itself, and a party.
“[The] annual CandE Awards Symposium will continue to examine the candidate experience and its impact on recruiting and business outcomes,” Talent Board Chair Ed Newman said. "This year's agenda is packed with sessions exploring different facets of candidate experience from sourcing and engaging talent to measuring quality of hire after onboarding.”
Based in San Francisco, the nonprofit Talent Board focuses on promoting a high-quality, candidate experience.
