Competition for talent is at a high and so is ghosting – both from candidates and employers. Ghosting is when a candidate or an employer stops responding to your messages or calls, leaving you in the dark and unsure of what to do next.
Ghosting can happen at any stage of the recruitment process, from the initial application to the final offer. It can have negative impacts on your reputation, brand, and hiring outcomes, so what can you do about it?
Jeremy Henderson, Strategic Director at Matchfield, a Raise company, hosted a webinar for ACEC-Ontario member companies that discussed key themes such as:
- Understand the common reasons why candidates and employers ghost each other
- Avoid the risk of damaging your brand and losing out on top talent
- Implement effective strategies to prevent ghosting and create a positive candidate experience
