IDEAS ON THIS TOPIC
It is becoming increasingly important to curate an excellent digital employee experience right from the start of the recruitment process.
HR departments are able to use digital solutions for the recruitment process, such as advertising jobs online. Video conferencing has made recruitment particularly easy. It also allows for flexible working patterns, a move away from an office, and a reduction of rent and utility costs.
How vital is candidate experience to a company’s recruitment marketing strategy? Look no further than a Talent Board study that listed the top three reasons candidates end the application process: disrespect of time (37 percent), poor recruiter rapport (32 percent), and length of the hiring process (29 percent).
The candidate's experience in recruiting should provide a picture of not only the duties and responsibilities of a role but also the culture, mission, and values of an organization. It should answer common questions: “What happens after I apply?” “When will I hear back?”
Improving the experience of the candidate
The one thing that has always made humans stand out from the rest is our ability to feel. In a world where someone’s career impacts their day-to-day life on such a large scale, the hiring process can be an emotional one.
That’s why removing feelings from the process just isn’t an option. Machines don’t get people, and feelings can’t be automated. You have to be able to communicate and adapt in real time to be a great recruiter — not use more tools.
