The candidate has accepted the offer and is going through onboarding and the new hire process. However, if a candidate has a bad experience, this can affect how they view the organization.
The organized process of onboarding
How do your process new hires? Are you emailing and sending them the information as you go? Having a streamlined system will help the process be consistent. Having an order to how you process new hires will help you stay on track. This uniform way of doing things will keep you and anyone working with the candidate informed. This also keeps the candidate in the loop.
Automating specific tasks can save you time and improve the time process time. For example, some software can schedule appointments based on your schedule. This gives candidates open times to choose from. There are many programs out there that will save you time.
Consistent communication with candidates
The worst way to lose a good candidate is miscommunication. The hiring experience can affect the way a candidate views the organization. Keeping the candidate updated throughout the process will keep them in the loop, especially when there are delays. However, if a candidate feels in the dark, it could confuse them about where they stand with the role. This can lead to them abandoning the process and finding work elsewhere.
Make sure to set up the candidate to be adequately trained. Employees that start with good training and competence are more likely to have a better view of their experience within the company. Compared to a candidate that feels less prepared, coming in will be harder to retain.
Among starting work, let the employees know they have leaders or individuals the candidate can go to for support. In addition, empowering them to talk to HR if they have questions or concerns is important. Also, remind the new hires to take specific training needed and be there to offer help and assistance where needed.
