Candidate Experience Awards - 2014 NAM Program Now Open

by Joseph Murphy

The 2014 NAM Employer Survey is now open for registration.

I have had the privilege and honor of working on the Candidate Experience Award since it inception.  Those organization that have participated obtained valuable and actionable feedback from their candidates.  You can too.  Here are some of the details and links to get going.

Round One of the CandE awards consists of approximately 64 questions about corporate applicant processes and practices that deliver the candidate experience. It is estimated that this phase of the survey will take between 90 to 120 minutes to complete.

To begin the application you will need to complete the registration survey for your company by clicking the button to the right.  You will receive a unique link that will allow you to confidentially access the full survey. The full survey can be completed in one discrete session or, can be saved for those who need to complete the survey in more than one session.

You can return using your unique link. Please note that while aggregate data will be published at the end of the program, each company’s response will be treated as confidential. The deadline for registering and completing the Employer Survey is April 28, 2014, 11:59 pm PDT.

The companies that complete the full survey on candidate experience in Round One will become eligible to move to Round Two of the CandEs.

Upon completion of Round One, Talent Board will notify companies of the requirements to participate in Round Two (usually within 2-3 weeks of Round One completion). The names of companies that do not meet theCandE award designation will remain confidential but ALL applicants will receive feedback and access to benchmarking data on how their responses related to the applicant group as a whole.

Download a copy of the 2013 CandE Awards eBook.  The read is very worthwhile and it provides insight into what you can learn about staffing process improvement and your candidate experience.
