A creative way to onboard
Candidate drop-off is time-consuming and expensive. To reduce churn, employers are being more creative in how they onboard new starters.
Acting quickly has long been an unwritten rule of recruitment but the move to email offers has often had a negative effect. An impersonal approach combined with a myriad of documents to download, print and sign puts the burden on the recruit and does not create a strong first impression.
Reverting to postal offers is an option, but can be time-consuming, expensive and, sometimes, unreliable.
The digital offer is clearly the best route, and simplifying the process makes it efficient and engaging. Most of all, this online approach increases acceptance rates.
Your digital offer pack needs to appeal to the candidate, while providing the employer with the information and insight they require.
It can also improve efficiency by preparing the new employee for their first day in advance, and providing real-time feedback to help the employer develop their recruitment processes.
