Is Your Business Offering a Good Candidate Experience?

Ronan McInerney 25.04.2017

A positive candidate experience is crucial when it comes to attraction top talent.

A recent survey by Careerarc revealed that 60% of job seekers felt they had received a poor candidate experience and more alarming 72% shared that experience online or with someone directly. 

As the talent crunch continues, many organisations with ongoing recruitment activity have recognised the value that a candidate experience program can bring to their business and ultimately how it can even impact the bottom line. These organisations have invested in successful candidate experience programs to transform their hiring process, establish a strong employer brand and help them attract and hire the right talent. 

What if your business doesn’t have an ongoing hiring demand or even a budget for a candidate experience program? You still need to hire key talent as the need arises. How can you attract top talent and compete against organisations who have dedicated candidate experience programs? 

In this situation, working with a recruitment consultancy can be of enormous benefit. Aside from the tangible time and money saving considerations, partnering with the right recruitment consultancy can ensure that all candidates have a positive experience when going through your hiring processes. This prevents negative candidate feedback going out to the market, which in turn, can go a long way towards attracting top talent in the long run.
