KGWI: Candidate Experience
More than just a job
The job application and hiring process is typically a candidate’s first experience with an organisation, where initial impressions are formed.
It is also a company’s first opportunity to put its best foot forward.
This entire process of engagement with prospects is important – not only for successful candidates, but for others who may not secure a position, but who will form lasting impressions.
In addition, an employee’s first few months on the job are a time when they are being tested by employers. It is frequently a period during which new hires are still making decisions about whether to stay or go.
The entire process of identifying and integrating new talent sets the stage for success, and sends a powerful message to a wider audience about how the organization values its people.
