As a successful owner or HR manager, you probably know that your company is only as strong as the people who work there. So, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of businesses are focusing on improving the candidate experience. Whether you’re hiring just one worker or looking for multiple employees to join your team, here are some of Accurate Personnel’s top tips for delivering a better experience for job candidates.
1. Get Social
When it comes to hiring, companies often make the mistake of talking more than listening. The truth is, if you want to know what you’re doing wrong, it pays to see what your job candidates are saying about you. Spend some time on social media learning what previous applicants have said about their experiences. You may notice some problematic trends, such as HR workers ghosting job candidates or failing to keep them engaged throughout the process. It’s also helpful to check out your competition and see what they’re doing right when hiring.
2. Stay in Touch
Speaking of ghosting, few things annoy job seekers more than companies that don’t keep them informed throughout the hiring process. Rather than stopping communication with a candidate you don’t wish to hire, take the time to reach out and thank them for applying. You should also contact prospective hires, so they don’t get impatient and accept a position from a competitor. In the long run, this practice will help generate more leads for your business.
3. Ask for Help
If hiring isn’t your area of expertise, don’t feel like you have to go through the process alone. Staffing agencies exist to help employers find the right job candidates and prospective workers find the right companies. When you work with a recruitment agency, you don’t just increase the odds that new hires will be successful. You also ensure a better candidate experience, which translates to the improved word of mouth about your company.
