Recruitment can be an extremely costly and time consuming process if it’s not done the correct way. It’s an everchanging environment, especially in recent years, where a recruitment strategy that worked well 12 months ago, may not have the same effect in today’s market.
Candidates are in high demand, so poor post interview communication and slow decision making can lead to candidates moving onto different opportunities with your competitors within a short amount of time. Candidates can even be put off joining your company based on this factor.
During the interview it is not just the candidate who needs to impress, the employer needs to make the candidate feel engaged and valued during the whole process too! If the candidate does not feel engaged and valued this could damage the reputation for your company. Word of mouth or bad reviews can put off other candidates to apply.
The industry is a people based industry which involves being able to communicate and negotiate effectively. Keep the recruiter informed because the recruiter has to keep the candidates in the loop which means that this can also ruin the recruiters reputation as well as yours.
If you are using recruiters it is so important to give as much detail as you possibly can because this will lead to the recruiter putting out a good quality advert which will attract the right candidates.
The hiring process can put candidates off if it is too long, on average it can take 27 days to hire a new candidate, but we have known some to be snapped up just in just a few days!
