Communication processes

What does this mean?

Why is this important?
  • Research shows that you the employer are being interviewed (Robert Walters 2012), a lack of communication leaves potential employees dissatisfied and wondering, did you receive their application, what's the next step, did they get an interview.  Professionally communicating with candidates indicates that your business can and does effectively communicate leading to a positive impression of the business
  • Prevents negative word of mouth advertising from unsuccessful candidates, when managed professionally 
  • Streamlining communication processes ensures productivity and alleviates candidates constantly calling to find out where the process is at.
