If you work in HR, or as part of an in-house recruitment team, you probably know by now how frustrating it can be to find the right talent for your organisation. So imagine finally hiring the perfect candidate only for them to leave within a few weeks of starting - it can be soul destroying, especially when you add up the wasted recruitment time, interview hours, and training costs; not to mention the costs of having to re-hire for the same position.
Losing candidates can be extremely frustrating for any company, especially when you don’t know the reason for losing them.
Many companies, at some point, will experience the loss of candidates during the Onboarding process. For many businesses, they aren’t able to learn as to why this happens, but we have discovered that it is often the result of poor communication and a lack of resources within the business that cause this problem. It’s the hidden gap of communication and engagement that goes unnoticed from the point of offering the position to your ideal candidate to the day that they start.
