Have you ever been left disappointed when a candidate tells you they’ve accepted another job? It’s frustrating, especially if they’re just about to join your organisation. You still have a gap to fill in your team and you need to start the recruitment process all over again. Let’s flip this around.
As a candidate, you have had a brilliant interview process with a company, you’ve been offered the job and you can’t wait to get started. Let’s assume you might have 1, 2 or even 3 months notice. So what happens during this time – from the candidate accepting an offer to actually starting the job? Will they hear from the company? They might receive a contract, maybe an offer letter, but for many, that’s as far as it goes.
According to a recent survey by Cezanne HR, from accepting a job to joining an organisation, a staggering 45% of candidates say they don’t hear from their new employer. In today’s market, it’s simply not enough to make the offer and wait for the new employee to turn up on day one.
Reduce the number of candidates dropping out after offer
Candidates dropping out before joining often comes down to lack of engagement. Let’s look at how improving the contact and engagement with a candidate can be easily achieved by providing an amazing, personalised new starter experience.
Let your candidates review, accept and complete their key new starter information online and in real time (a cost saving in both time and money!) – all through ourOnline Onboardingfeature. But we take Onboarding a step further withGreen Room Onboarding.
Welcome to Green Room Onboarding
The door is unlocked to the candidate’s Green Room Onboarding - a new way to engage with a new employee joining your organisation before they come onboard.
As a new starter, imagine having a personalised portal that includes a message from your new manager, a photo of the team you’ll be joining or a video showing the on-site restaurant facilities. Combine this with key contact details for your manager and HR in case you have any questions, plus hints, tips and information for your first day and already you’re starting to feel like one of the team.
This level of new starter engagement isn’t difficult to achieve, it's quite the opposite with our Green Room Onboarding feature.
