Employment Background Screening Company Continues to Improve Talent Acquisition Space Through Partnership

SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwired – Aug 15, 2017) – Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Sterling is a Gold sponsor of the 2017 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards.

The annual awards and benchmarking programs 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.

“Sterling is proud to sponsor the 2017 Candidate Experience Awards in partnership with Talent Board,” said Clare Hart, CEO of Sterling. “From the moment a job application is submitted to a candidate’s first day, our goal is to empower companies to create a consistent, simple and memorable candidate experience.”

Registration for the 2017 CandE Awards in NAM is open until August 18, in EMEA and APAC until November 1. Employers of all sizes are welcome to register for any and all regional programs that correspond with their hiring efforts. After submitting a one-time annual registration fee and completing the registration process, participating organizations will go through two rounds of data collection and evaluation of their candidate experience practices. Top-rated organizations will be recognized publicly as CandE Award winners.

Kevin Grossman, president of Global Programs for Talent Board, shared, “Through their support of the CandE Awards, Sterling is demonstrating a serious commitment to advancing recruiting, hiring and onboarding for both hiring organizations and job seekers. We’re grateful to welcome them back as a sponsor.”
