Is your recruitment process hampering your ability to hire the best candidates?
One of our candidates was left waiting for an hour for her interview at a company. Needless to say this left a really bad taste in her mouth and it’s taken a lot of consultation on our side to secure her for the client (they really loved her once they actually say her).
As a hiring manager, one of your primary focus areas is securing top-tier talent for your organisation. But how often do you take a moment to consider the experience of your candidates throughout this process?
The candidate experience is a job seeker’s overall perception of an organisation’s recruitment process. This includes every interaction from the job listing to the application process, interview stage, and finally, the job offer or rejection. In a world where social media and employer review sites provide platforms for candidates to share their experiences, both positive and negative impressions can significantly impact your employer brand.
A well-structured and positive candidate experience not only increases the likelihood of the candidate accepting your job offer, but it can also affect your company’s reputation, the calibre of your applicants, and ultimately, your business’s success.
So how can we, as an external recruitment partner, enhance your candidates’ experience? We serve as the link between you and the candidates. We provide them with timely feedback, ensure transparency in the recruitment process, and manage expectations on both sides.
Our goal is not just to fill vacancies but to provide a smooth, respectful, and positive process for every candidate we engage with. After all, a candidate who isn’t chosen today might be a future client or the perfect match for another role. By partnering with a professional recruiter, you’re ensuring a premium experience for your candidates, boosting your reputation as an employer of choice.
So, my tip for the day – take a step back and have a look at your overall recruitment process to make sure that the candidate experience is a great one which will help you secure top talent!
