Recruiting a great new hire can take a long time—often much longer than anticipated. Extended timelines can be challenging for your recruitment and hiring team, but they’re perhaps even more challenging for candidates.
It’s hard enough to search for a new job, and if you’re engaged in a protracted interview or recruitment process, it only makes things harder.
A solid candidate might wait too long to accept a good offer with another organisation, or give up entirely if your recruitment process takes an inordinately long time. That’s the kind of poor experience they’re likely to share with others. A poor candidate experience won’t reflect well on your organisation.
