[NEW E-BOOK] Ghosting 101: How to Hire and Retain Talent Despite the New Normal

Thursday, June 6, 2019

Orion Talent is happy to announce our latest e-book, Ghosting 101: How to Hire and Retain Talent Despite the New Normal. Paul Davidson of USA TODAY reported in 2018 that “according to many employers, 20 to 50 percent of job applicants and workers” were pulling no-shows. Unfortunately, this phenomenon known as ghosting is more than a trend.
 
In our e-book, we explore ghosting and  how recruiting experts at Orion Talent are handling this challenge. Tony Hoffman and Mike Wood, Recruiting Managers at Orion Talent, provide insight into why candidates are ghosting, how recruiters must adapt, and how to keep candidates engaged to avoid this trend.
 
One such strategy is strong outreach through responsiveness and awareness. “We coach our recruiters to connect with candidates on more than a transactional  level,” explains Mike, “It’s got to be more  than ‘I have a job, you should apply.’ They need to make a genuine connection by communicating and  showing interest.”
 
On the bright side, ghosting is a sign of a strong job market where job seekers have multiple opportunities. It should also be viewed as an opportunity for companies to improve their candidate engagement. Download the e-book now and get valuable tips on combating ghosting.
