The War for Talent is going to have winners and losers, and we all want to hire a winning team. In such a competitive environment, an outstanding employment brand is required to attract the best and brightest. While most talent acquisition professionals know in theory that a company’s employment brand is key, few really analyze the candidate experience as the most important element of your brand.
Here’s what you need to know: 46% of candidates rate their candidate experience applying for jobs as poor to very poor.And worse, 64% said that they share information about their candidate experience via social media. With this in mind, you definitely want your company to be perceived as candidate-friendly.
Just a few negative candidate reviews can dissuade candidates from applying to your company.
