Jacobs Honored with 2018 Talent Board Candidate Experience Award


Our North American candidates have spoken and thanks to their positive experience with our recruitment process, Jacobs has been honored as a winner of the 2018 North America Candidate Experience (CandE) Award. 

Talent Board is a non-profit research organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of a quality candidate experience led the evaluation process. Two hundred companies from North America put their recruiting and hiring process to the test, and over 130,000 job candidates shared their thoughts and experiences. Winners were identified through a comprehensive data analysis based on their job candidates’ satisfaction survey scores.

Prior to combining forces about a year ago, CH2M had previously won the CandE award for the past six out of 8eightyears. Notably this is a great honor for Jacob’s to be a first-time winner of the coveted CandE Award.  We’re constantly working to improve the candidate experience and to be the employer of choice. At Jacobs we strive to treat candidates as we all want to be treated and this feedback will help us to continue to improve our process and experience.

“This year’s Candidates Experience Award winners have raised the bar yet again with ensuring consistent communication and feedback loops at every stage of the recruitment process,” commented Kevin W. Grossman, Talent Board President and Board Member. “And each one knows that even the smallest of improvements with communication and feedback can equate to a big impact on business outcomes and the employment brand.”

The CandE Awards were celebrated at the 2018 North American CandE Symposium and Awards Gala, held on Monday, October 15, 2018 at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando, FL.
