“We’ve been conducting our annual candidate experience research for over 11 years, providing talent acquisition leaders and their teams around the world with proven practices for delivering quality candidate experiences,” said Kevin W. Grossman, Talent Board President. “However, with non-stop economic volatility and growing shortages of qualified talent, practitioners are looking for more talent acquisition and management insights to help them navigate the constant change and challenges they face. We decided it was time to develop talent acquisition research for practitioners by practitioners.”

Talent Board’s TA Research Advisory Board plans on covering a variety of recruiting and hiring topics including:

  • Pipeline Management: How and where are employers finding candidates?
  • Workforce Planning: How are employers aligning their workforce with their business goals and objectives?
  • Recruiting Tech ROI: How is HR and TA ensuring recruiting tech ROI?
  • Automation and Artificial Intelligence in Recruitment: How does AI recruiting tech improve the recruiter, hiring manager, and the candidate experience today?

“Talent Board’s research has always helped the industry do better when it comes to delivering a quality candidate experience,” said Cathy Henesey, Vice President of Talent Acquisition at AdventHealth. “I provided input when they created a candidate experience learning program a few years ago, and now I’m even more excited to be a member of their new research advisory board. Having a hand in developing TA research that I can use today, as well as my peers, will help us all create increased process efficiencies, improve our decision-making, optimize our technology stacks, and improve candidate, recruiter, and hiring manager experiences overall. I look forward to seeing our first research report!”

The first expanded research report will be available in August. For organizations interested in joining next year’s Candidate Experience Benchmark Research Program, the 2023 Program is now open and companies can learn more about participation here.
