When you find the perfect prospect for a position, it feels like a victory! However, when they decline the offer, it can raise many questions. Where did you go wrong? Was it the interview? Was it the onboarding process? If a client leaves your staffing agency and chooses another agency, you need to reassess your recruitment process. As you assess your hiring process, it is imperative that your staffing agency stays protected with an Employment Practices Liability Insurance policy.
Most of the time, the candidate is not aware of the full picture and how great the opportunity is because it not fully laid out for them. Many times this is the cause of a job offer going south. However, in order to make a compelling offer, you must understand what the potential hire is looking for.
According to an article in Celebrity Staff, an unexpected decline can be confusing, but there is a way to avoid that. The next time you’re doing an interview with a candidate that seems to be a perfect fit, make sure to ask the right questions. Consider the answers to these questions as reasons for the candidate to pick your job offer.
- Why do they want to work at this company?
- What would make them stay in the company down the road?
- What does a day in the life of an employee look like?
- What are your expectations of the employee in their first year?
