The Future of Work is Now

Chapter Five: Prioritising Candidate Experience

The latest instalment of our Future of Work is Now series focuses on an area that is set for the largest transformation – candidate experience. With new technology comes new expectations – nowadays, when people are able to order a pizza and track it directly to their front door, they don't expect to apply for a job and be left in limbo for weeks.

In this chapter, we explore what candidates expect from a hiring process today, as well as the consequences of not meeting these expectations. We also give tips and practical advice on fixing the most common issues that often lead to a poor experience for candidates.
