With 83% of staffing and recruiting firm survey respondents ranking relationship building as “extremely important” and another 12% ranking it “very important”, it is no surprise that we are in an era that is hyper focused on candidate experience and satisfaction.
This is terrific news.
The question (and opportunity) becomes how do you maximize candidate experience when you are working from home, not traveling or interviewing in person, and working in a technology-centric world.
Here are some tips:
Building better relationships through technology is key.
As reported by G2, “63% of job seekers will likely reject a job offer because of a bad candidate experience.” This is huge as most staffing and recruiting firms have a finite talent pool to work from, plus with social media and reviews, no one can afford a bad experience.
So how to make sure all candidates and applicants have a great experience? Technology can help. The right technology can really help.
Using recruitment software to streamline and automate standard communications paths and personalize sequences can ensure no candidate falls through the cracks, gets a bad email, or misses out on a new job opportunity with your firm. Further, the right software will save your recruiters tons of time.
