We have all been involved in numerous hiring processes. This process is a great way to show potential employees the culture of the organization. This means that the prospects will understand the values, purpose, mission and vision of the organization, as well as the style of communication and the care towards the workforce. We call this Candidate Experience.
As a recruiter in different industries, I understood that the candidate experience is one of the most important things in Human Resources. You might be asking why. It happens that when we are able to exchange with potential employees we show – and sell – how our company behaves. This is the game-changer: we build, create and embrace culture even with people that don’t belong to the company yet. The candidate experience might be just as important as your internal culture. This is because the people who don´t belong to your organization yet, might be sharing their experience and thoughts with more potential candidates. In either case, we all know word-of-mouth marketing qualifies as one of the best way to promote your business.
The breaking point we should be more aware of is the candidate experience. An excellent end-to-end recruitment process can make the difference for your organization, even for those who don’t join the organization. We run out of excuses, and it’s time to invest. And even if you don’t agree with me at this point, remember those times where you applied. You went on one or two one and never heard from the recruiter again. Does this sound familiar? Experiences like this negatively influence your attitude towards these organizations.
