Hiring can be a tedious process. Naturally, you’ll do whatever it takes to make your job easy and efficient. However, if you’re only thinking about your experience—and not the candidate’s—you’ll end up making your job much harder.
Candidate experience matters—especially in today’s world of instant gratification where consumers can get what they want, when they want, without any hassle. Candidates expect the same seamless experience throughout the hiring process. Require a 5 page application? They’ll quit before submitting. Offer little to no feedback throughout the interview stage? They’ll move on to the next opportunity. Candidates demand transparency, communication, and efficiency, and anything less can damage your employer brand.
On the flip side, positive candidate experience can boost your employer brand and increase employee tenure. By evaluating your hiring practices for bias, developing a consistent interview process, implementing ongoing communication to prospective employees, and creating a smooth and enjoyable onboarding experience, you’ll set your company up for long-term hiring success.
