Candidate Experience: Driving Improvements that Hit the Bottom Line

Candidate Experience: Driving Improvements that Hit the Bottom Line

Mike Roberts

Recruiting leaders tend to overlook the impact a positive or negative candidate experience can have—and those impacts extend beyond just the human resources department. Earlier this week Jibe’s SVP of Marketing, Ivan Casanova, was a guest on The CandEs Shop Talk Podcast hosted by Kevin W. Grossman. Among a slew of topics regarding talent acquisition, the duo discussed how improving candidate experience can actually impact a business’ bottom line.

For years now, we’ve been sponsoring The Talent Board’s annual Candidate Experience Research and Awards. As Ivan put it in the podcast, the research has proven to be a valuable asset for companies in all phases of their candidate experience journey, but especially for organizations that are trying to figure out where to start.

“Candidate experience is a huge topic for our customers. Every company’s challenges around candidate experience is different and unique,” Ivan said. “Every time I go to a client who’s just beginning the journey of addressing their candidate experience, they say ‘Ivan, how can I get going?’ And my answer is always the same, which is you need to start measuring, you need to start understanding how candidates are behaving when they come and look for a job with your organization. You need to try to understand what’s actually happening today. You need to establish a baseline. And I always tell them that the best way to do that is to start partnering and working with the Talent Board.”
