SSM Health has been named one of 50 winners of the 2016 North American Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards by Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the promotion and benchmark research of quality job candidate experiences.
SSM Health is one of only three healthcare providers to receive the award from Talent Board, which accepts entries from North American-based employers and evaluates organizations that produce outstanding candidate experiences.
“We received an overwhelmingly positive response from our candidates on their experience with our hiring process, which is the result of hundreds of quality daily interactions with our candidates and the improved design and delivery of our processes,” said Thomas Ahr, System Vice President of Talent Management for SSM Health. “Our commitment to providing an exceptional candidate experience parallels our commitment to providing an exceptional patient experience and employee experience at SSM Health.”
The 50 organizations to receive the CandE award were identified through a blind data analysis based on surveys of 183,000 job candidates. Recent enhancements in the SSM Health online application process and the daily commitment of the organization’s talent acquisition team to engage with all job applicants with respect contributed significantly to the award.
Specific actions that SSM Health implemented in 2016 to enhance its recruiting and hiring process include:
“Year after year, more companies recognize the importance of the candidate experience and the role it plays in attracting top candidates and promoting employer brand,” said Elaine Orler, Talent Board Co-founder and Chairman and Talent Function Chief Executive Officer and Founder. “The Candidate Experience Benchmark Class of 2016 represents those companies that take this understanding one step further, to elevate the standard and improve the relationship between job seekers and employers. We are thrilled to honor the exemplary efforts of this year’s winners.”
The CandE Awards serve as a benchmark program to raise awareness of the benefits of positive candidate experiences. Other organizations receiving this award include Enterprise Holdings, Facebook, NewYork– Presbyterian Hospital and Spectrum Health System. The 2016 CandE Award winners will be celebrated at the sixth annual CandE Gala on November 15 in Austin, Texas.
