Cielo Supports 2017 Candidate Experience Awards as Global Platinum Sponsor

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – (June 29, 2017) – Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Cielo (formerly Pinstripe), is a Global Platinum 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.

“Our work with Talent Board is a way to encourage our clients to take their candidate experience as seriously as we do on their behalf. So, beyond just promoting the program to our clients, we have taken the further step of offering to fully assist them with the process, including covering the registration fee for all of our clients that would like to take part,” said Anne Bucher, Cielo’s senior vice president of Customer Experience. “A number of our current clients are CandE winners, and we believe all of these relationships would benefit from the detailed feedback and comparisons the process provides.”

Registration for the 2017 CandE Awards programs is now open. 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.

Elaine Orler, board member of Talent Board and CEO of Talent Function, said, “It’s exciting to welcome Cielo as a sponsor of the CandE Awards. Cielo demonstrates an ongoing commitment to designing intentional candidate experiences, a seemingly natural extension of the Talent Board mission. We look forward to working together on this year’s programs.”

Cielo’s global sponsorship of the 2017 CandE Awards will include a customized Candidate Experience Workshop exclusively for the firm’s Americas clients in coordination with its annual Talent Rising Summit as well as thought leadership collaboration.
