You’ve Been Ghosted: 3 Steps to Becoming an HR Ghostbuster
Is there anything more frustrating than having a potential job candidate and then, out of what seems like nowhere, they stop responding? We call that ghosting: the art of disappearing without a word. 76% of employers report they’ve been ghosted in the past year, with 46% of job candidates not showing up for scheduled interviews.
Join Mahoney Performance Institute and Steven Smith, SHRM-CP, PHR, for a one hour session to create a more effective hiring process and become an “HR Ghostbuster.”
In this session you will learn:
- How to review your current hiring processes
- Indicators to identify why applicants are ghosting you
- Mitigate and make changes to your hiring to decrease ghosting in the recruiting, hiring and onboarding
- Increase overall talent retention
Meet Steven Smith, Chief Hiring Expert
Steven J Smith, SHRM-CP, PHR will be the first to tell you that recruiting is marketing. He earned a BS in Finance at Brigham Young University and started his career in recruiting in Feb 2005. In 2008, he took a risk during a recession to help start a new company with Ryan Kohler, called ApplicantPro, designed to provide applicant tracking software for small to mid-sized businesses. 10,000 clients and 300 employees later, ApplicantPro has been on the Inc 5000 list 10 years in a row. Steve currently serves as the Utah SHRM State Director and he loves to volunteer. His book, The Hiring Tree: Laws of Applicant Attraction, has helped thousands of organizations across the country rethink the way they approach hiring. Again, recruiting is marketing.
