ST. LOUIS, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise Holdings has been honored for its recruiting practices by the Talent Board – a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a positive candidate experience. The 2013 North American Candidate Experience Awards were presented at the 16th Annual HR Technology Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas. Enterprise Holdings, through its regional subsidiaries, operates the largest fleet of vehicles in the world through a global network of more than 8,100 airport and neighborhood locations under the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands.
The Candidate Experience Award winners were based on a poll of more than 46,000 job candidates regarding their recruitment experiences at more than 95 organizations nationwide. The three rounds of this survey were designed to evaluate and recognize organizations that produce outstanding candidate experiences.
In total, 64 organizations received the award, and Enterprise was one of only 13 organizations to earn the honor "With Distinction," based on a number of unique practices.
"We work hard to ensure that we are approachable and responsive to candidates interested in joining Enterprise, so it's gratifying to hear from the candidates themselves that our efforts are paying off," said Marie Artim, vice president of talent acquisition at Enterprise Holdings. "And this focus won't change as we continue to grow as a company and seek out additional talent in the years ahead."
Earlier this year, Enterprise was recognized by Glassdoor as one of the top 10 companies excelling in social recruiting.
Enterprise cites its promote-from-within culture as the major driver behind its need to recruit thousands of new employees annually. Last year alone, more than 10,000 individuals were promoted or took on new challenges in various positions throughout the company.
In the coming year, Enterprise Holdings plans to hire more than 11,000 full-time employees. The majority of these new hires will enter into the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Management Training program, which teaches employees how to run a business, empower teams and provide excellent face-to-face customer service.
"We put people in a position to succeed immediately, and we promote almost exclusively from within – that makes Enterprise an ideal choice for those just beginning or reinventing their careers," said Artim.
