11 Ways to Humanize the Candidate Experience

Improving the candidate experience is an ongoing priority for HR and TA leaders. Good progress has been made in areas like mobile-friendly career sites, shorter apply times and standardized interview methods.

Process improvements are important, but what candidates are telling us they really want is more communication.

The latest Talent Board research shows that job seekers rated their candidate experience higher when there was open, transparent and two-way communication (including feedback) between them and the employer throughout their candidate journey.

It turns out that a great candidate experience has come down to meeting a few basic human needs: the chance to be heard, the satisfaction of getting a response and the feeling of being respected.

It’s time for us to take the next step in improving the candidate experience. It’s time to HUMANIZE it.
