Q. Why do candidates renege on job offers?
A. It’s complicated. Sometimes this is because a candidate has received a better job offer which they prefer and sometimes it’s because they may come across some information they were unaware of regarding a prospective employer’s values, history, and projects that puts them off. Equally, candidates that are offered a role a while before the start date can become disengaged or lose a sense of belonging, find out how you can combat this here.
