Spero Therapeutics is excited to announce that we are winners of a 2021 CandE Award! Spero ranked #22 out of #132 companies that participated in North America. The CandE Award is a prestigious award in the Talent Acquisition and HR space that recognizes companies who have been identified as providing exceptional candidate care by the candidates who go through their interview process, over 80% of whom were not hired. The award is presented by the Talent Board; a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience. Winners were identified through a comprehensive data analysis based on their job candidates’ satisfaction survey scores. To qualify, each company committed to a statistically significant candidate response rate, where the proportion of respondents who were not hired met or exceeded a set standard.

    I had thought things were going well, and enjoyed meeting people at the company before suddenly being ghosted. It was very strange since I had been told not long before that I would be moving to the next stage of the process, and then all communication ceased and my calls and emails were not returned. I understand if the position has been filled, but ghosting candidates is not the right way to go about it.
