There’s a common misconception that your employees’ experience at your company starts from Day 1. In reality their experience begins before their experience starts before their first day. The way you treat job applicants when they interview for positions at your company reflects on your employees, your organization, and ultimately your company’s brand.
Sending surveys to job interview candidates can also help you understand what candidates are looking for from their next role. Are there critical perks or benefits that you’re not offering? Aspects of your culture that aren’t coming through clearly? You’ll never know until you start asking them.
While understanding your candidates’ experiences is undoubtedly good for your company, it’s also just the right thing to do.
