Selection and assessment

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. That’s a comment often made to candidates as they present themselves at interviews. But it is just as important for the company to make a good impression on those applying for a job. If applicants don’t view the selection processes as fair, appropriate and valuable, then a series of potential knock-on effects may occur: worst case, the candidate might decide to withdraw his or her application or reject any subsequent job offer.

But the image of the company can also suffer—as an employer and as a brand, resulting in fewer recommendations, applications and even sales. If a company is facing the challenge of having insufficient applicants to meet their recruitment needs, it may need to look at its selection process and the candidate experience and consider if more can be done to attract and retain applicants as they progress through the selection process.

Furthermore, bad hiring decisions can lead to plummeting engagement levels, increased turnover and reduction in customer loyalty and company revenue.
