Now more than ever, even before they apply, candidates want a real insight into what it is like to work for your business. Research has shown that, in addition to looking at customer and employee online reviews on places such as Trustpilot and Glassdoor, candidates are increasingly looking at your company website for insights about your business.
- 95% of candidates identify a company’s reputation as a key consideration when exploring new career opportunities
- 83% of job seekers are likely to research company reviews and ratings online when deciding on where to apply for a job
- 40% of passive candidates would accept a new position without an increase in pay if the company had a good employer brand
- 50% of candidates say they wouldn’t work for a company with a bad reputation – even for a pay increase
