#WorkTrends Recap: The Candidate Experience

The employee engagement experience. The candidate experience. Both very valid and important topics to be considered in today’s business world. Gone are the days of companies ignoring their employer brand, reputation as an employer of choice and with that conducting interviews and onboarding new employees in a haphazard fashion.

With the jobs market leaning more towards the job seeker, now is the time for companies to invest in their reputation management and discover where additional attention is needed.

This week, Meghan M Biro was joined by her former co-host Kevin W. Grossman to discuss the importance of why all companies should conduct discoveries of how they are perceived by job seekers and candidates.

Here are a few key points Kevin shared:

  • When the candidate experience is great, candidates recruit on your behalf through referrals!
  • The companies that are taking a hard look at their candidate experiences are proactive and innovative
  • It’s important to survey all candidates, not just those that were hired when looking to improve the candidate experience
