    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, at its new time from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about how disruptive technologies will empower the future of HR, and this week we’re going to talk about how improving the candidate experience empowers a better workforce.


    The hiring economy today is highly complex. Even though job growth has improved dramatically in the past 14 months, employers still struggle to fill jobs due to talent shortages.


    The Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards were created to provide a universal measure of the candidate experience. The “winners” are the ones empowering a better workforce.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about how improving the candidate experience empowers a better workforce with this week’s guests: Elaine Orler, Chairman and Co-Founder of the Talent Board and the CandEs; and Gerry Crispin, Co-Founder of the Talent Board and the CandEs.


    Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: Dice, Jibe, RecruitiFi, TalentWise, Hootsuite, IBM, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Silkroad, Predictive Analytics World for Workforce and HRmarketer Insight. Plus, we're big CandE supporters!
