Last week we talked about gratitude and appreciation and how they drive high-performance climates and cultures, and this week we’re talking about improving the candidate experience.
The good news is, according to the 2013 Candidate Experience Awards research, an overwhelming majority of candidates (87.3 percent) reported feeling satisfied to very satisfied with how the application processes allowed them to present their knowledge, skills and experience, compared to 12.7% who felt dissatisfied.
Plus, for the sought after tech talent today, it’s not all about the money in the end, especially for startups. According to the recent 2014 Dice Salary Survey, the technology startup community seems to want to fill their hearts and minds as much as their wallets. Cultural fit, company purpose and investments in personal growth all are included in the rewards startup professionals seek. The fact is, many tech professionals are seeking more than just money — they want their whole selves to be sourced and seen, finding the right culture fit and participating in tech talent communities that bring together like-minded techs in specific fields to collaborate, innovate and invigorate the very heart of their world of work purpose.
