Candidates are the important people whose impressions, opinions and feedback about your company can have a huge impact on your customer base, candidate pool and network. Keeping candidates informed and engaged throughout the process helps build a positive impression of the organization, which can impact their willingness to accept a job offer.
It can also help reduce candidate frustration and uncertainty, leading to a better candidate experience and higher levels of candidate satisfaction; even if they aren’t selected for the role, chances are they will recommend the role to others, or reapply if they come to know of a similar role with your company. When they feel valued as a candidate, they are more likely to feel valued as an employee and stay with the organization for a longer period of time. Those who have a positive experience during the recruitment process are more likely to become advocates for the organization, helping to build a strong employer brand.
When candidates feel at ease during the recruitment process, feel safe and respected, they let their guard down and reveal their real capabilities, thus enabling recruiters to gain a more accurate and comprehensive understanding of a candidate’s skills, experience, and fit for the role.
