Putting the Candidate First: MHFI wins Candidate Experience Award

The Candidate Experience Awards, a non-profit organization focused on advancing the employment candidate experience, recently awarded McGraw Hill Financial a UK Candidate Experience Award (CandE Award) for upholding a high standard in how we engage and treat job candidates.

Open to employers that recruit in the British employment marketplace, the UK CandE Awards consists of three rounds of review designed to identify organizations that meet candidate expectations and provide value to job seekers throughout the talent acquisition process.  McGraw Hill Financial was recognized alongside companies such as Intel Corporate, PepsiCo and The Royal Bank of Scotland.

This recognition follows a similar honor last fall – the 2013 North American Candidate Experience Award – earned in the midst of putting new practices, systems and branding in place. The award demonstrates that MHFI continued to give its job candidates a positive recruiting and hiring experience. Some of the many touch points evaluated included the candidates’ interactions with our website, ease of job search, our application process, and of course the many individual interactions they have with our recruiters on a daily basis.

MHFI has focused on cutting down the time needed to apply for their positions, leading to better overall applicant flow.  In addition, throughout the application process, we solicit feedback to understand key areas where the experience can be improved and optimized.

“At McGraw Hill Financial, acquiring the best talent starts with providing a positive experience and a clear picture of our company culture to job candidates,” said Robin Landsman, MHFI’s Vice President of Talent Acquisition.  Our ‘Be Essential’ campaign is intended to appeal to the types of employees we are looking for – those with independent opinions who pursue excellence while collaborating without boundaries. Our Talent Acquisition team is also striving to exemplify these characteristics as we continue to innovate in our industry.”
