What Your Background Check Tells the Candidate About You

Featured Image

Your goal as the hiring manager is to find and hire the best candidates for your open positions. But have you considered how your candidates’ first experience with you may affect their decision to accept your offer over your competitor’s?

Your candidates’ experiences with their background check makes a strong statement about your business during the hiring process. You need to make sure every candidate receives the best experience possible so that you will land your ideal candidate every time.

In this post, we walk you through how one simple tool will help you achieve positive candidate experience.

Your Candidates’ Experiences Matter

According to CareerArc, 72% of surveyed job candidates said they would share a negative hiring experience either online or with someone directly.

Your candidates’ experiences include all the interactions they have with your business during the hiring process. Although background checks are conducted by an outside firm, they play an important role in shaping your candidates’ overall experiences and their perception of you.

Candidates faced with a lengthy hiring process and who feel that their time has not been respected are more likely to withdraw from consideration.

However, those with positive candidate experiences are more likely to accept the offer, reapply in the future, and refer others to you or your business.
