The final analysis included metrics on candidates’ overall ranking of their experience, whether they would reapply to the organization in the future, whether they would refer other job seekers to the organization in the future, and how the candidates would change their business relationship status with the organization going forward based on their experience.

“This honor reflects the tremendous effort of our team members, who create the most enjoyable candidate experience,” said Brandon Parise, chief human resources officer for Progress Residential. “We appreciate the esteemed recognition, and our teams will continue to build on our best-in-class practices and further optimize the candidate experience moving forward.”
