Informatica (@informaticaCorp) recently won a "CandE" (Candidate Experience) Award with distinctions for the professionalism of the HR Department and the commitment to establishing a quality recruitment process. The Candidate Experience Awards are an annual competition process organized by the Talent Board, a non-profit research organization that recognizes that finding new employment is inherently stressful for most job seekers and their families. The process allows employers the opportunity to benchmark their candidate experience against that of other companies and 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.
