1. It’s all about the employee experience
According to a Workplace Trends survey, 60 percent of job seekers have had a bad candidate experience and more than 70 percent relayed this information on Glassdoor.com (or a site like it). This kind of negative feedback deters other candidates from applying and can also dissuade potential customers.
But talking about engagement isn’t something new for any of us. However, over the course of 2017, consider how the employee experience affects the business with the same type of urgency that you do with customers. From the physical office space, involvement in the community, and learning and development to People (HR) programs and benefits, every aspect of the organization needs to be optimized to cultivate a happier and more engaged workforce.
I am not surprised by the fact that 60% of job seekers have reported unsatisfied candidates experiences. You can find the survey here.
