Reduce the cost of your candidate drop outs by reducing your renege rates with Connectr.

Why candidate experience matters

It is a candidate market. They are consumer savvy ‘buyers’. Every candidate you lose costs you money.

Why the candidate experience is so important

Candidate declines and reneges are high, between 26% and 44%. A candidates experience starts from that first moment they come into contact with your brand, right through to day 1 in role.

A great candidate experience:

  • leads to better quality applicants
  • improves conversion rates through the recruitment process
  • reduces declines and reneges
  • and when done really well, improves speed to value of new starters

What should you do:

  • Make it easy to learn about your business and your culture, in an engaging and easy to consume way
  • Give authentic insights into your organisation
  • Make the job role exciting and jargon free
  • Be clear what you seeking in your hires and what your offer is
  • Personalise the candidate experience as much as possible
  • Once in the recruitment process help set them up for success
  • Make sure your pre-boarding experience (from ‘yes to desk’) is about what they need, and not just what you need from them!

What our trusted partners say

  • The British Airways logo

    The platform is simple but effective and very easy for students to navigate – as well as for us as clients to use and create content for. The site has become a key part of our student engagement activity and a vital way for us to track and keep students we meet at career events engaged with our company - particularly through the modules feature. Having the dashboard/reporting access is extremely useful and important for us, as is the mentoring function, providing a safeguarded link between connecting students with our colleagues.

  • The Atkins logo

    It fills a gap in our Early Careers talent acquisition/ candidate experience process that we needed to fill and we know that young people want to connect with people in our organisation doing the job which we’re able to provide. Nothing in life is perfect, but I would score the Connectr team 10 out of 10 because they're everything you want from a supplier, a product and a team.

    Katherine, Head of Early Careers
  • The Thales logo

    Our partnership with Connectr has been fundamental in ensuring an effective and engaging experience. It offers a consistent, accessible, preboarding experience for all new starters, enabling them to connect with buddies, build networks and join live sessions whilst accessing learning content.
