Next steps

You’ve seen the numbers. Now, let’s take a look at the steps you can take to implement the findings from this article.
  1. Reevaluate how you use technology when hiring. The stats make it clear that the most successful recruiters use HR software (like an applicant tracking system) and utilize online job boards and social sites. If you’re not already doing so, make a plan to start.
  2. Measure candidate experience. New hires and rejected applicants alike are more helpful to your company brand if they have a good candidate experience. Use a metric like the candidate net promoter score to see how you’re doing and learn what to improve.
  3. Tell applicants what your company has to offer. We know that people are looking for remote work opportunities, companies that value DEI, and jobs with good salaries and benefits. Make these things selling points in both job posts and interviews.
