Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience, today announced that AllyO, the technology company renowned for its end-to-end AI recruiting solution, has become a North American Platinum sponsor for this year’s 2019 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards global benchmark research program.

“We’re grateful for the generous support of AllyO, a company with a primary mission of improving the overall recruiting experience and the candidate experience through the power of artificial intelligence,” said Kevin Grossman, Talent Board president and board member. “AllyO’s support enables us to grow our programs and ensure our benchmarking efforts reach more employers.”

The annual Talent Board recruiting and candidate experience benchmarking and awards program offer employers in North America; Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); Asia-Pacific (APAC); and now for the first time Latin America, 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.

The most extensive study of its kind, the Talent Board benchmark research program has evaluated responses from hundreds of global employers each year and nearly 1 million job seekers since 2011. To qualify, each company has to commit to a statistically significant candidate response, and the proportion of respondents not hired also had to exceed a set standard. Registration for the 2019 CandE program is now open.

“AllyO deeply believes that caring about talent, wherever they are in their journey with an employer, is the single best strategic decision that employers can make in today’s environment. Using conversational artificial intelligence and a responsive automated experience, we help employers hyper-prioritize candidate experience throughout the talent acquisition lifecycle. This is the exact strategy we chose internally to achieve 5-star Glassdoor ratings,” shared Ankit Somani, co-founder of AllyO. “As a result, every employer we work with, sees upwards of 2x improvement in candidate satisfaction scores, something that speaks directly to the heart of the Talent Board’s research.”
