The CandE Awards is a free, annual competition process where:
- Employers have the opportunity to benchmark their candidate experience against that of other companies
- Employers have the opportunity to participate in a 3rd party survey of their employment candidates to see what their candidates really think of their process
The CandE Award process is a competition, but it is also designed to provide every organization that chooses to participate, confidential and specific feedback on how they can improve their candidate experience. There is no cost to the employer, only time spent to complete the registration and the survey. Registration takes place in the spring of each year and the awards are announced the following fall.
