Here Are Just A Few Insights From The 2016 Research
Nearly half of all candidates (42.6 percent) had no previous relationship with a company before applying, meaning that the candidate experience is the first exposure they have to a company’s brand and highlighting the need to for employers to get it right.
Company values are crucial to shaping an employer brand; 47.4 percent of candidates stated that the most important marketing material influencing their decision to apply was the company’s values.
Nearly three-quarters (69.7 percent) of candidates said they were never asked about their experience by an employer, highlighting the lag in truly benchmarking how the candidate perceives the overall experience.
With 40.3 percent of candidates spending 30 minutes or more on the average application, and 13.4 percent spending an hour or more, time had less of an impact on the candidate experience compared to if the candidate felt they were able to accurately represent their skills and abilities to perform the job.
Employers are winning at candidate experience; almost 73 percent of candidates reported that they would definitely or are likely to apply to the company again.
