In a competitive market where the war for talent continues on, the number of open jobs is high and the number of applications per role continues to decline its surprising that recruiters are mis-selling roles to candidates. Recent research shows that current recruitment processes are failing many employees and their heightened expectations are in fact quashed on joining. The impact on both the candidate and employers is costly.
According to the research, a massive 48% of polled employees have left a role because it wasn’t what they expected it to be. When asked what these differences were, 59% cited job responsibilities, 42% pointed to the working environment and 35% mentioned working hours or a change in shift patterns. Of the individuals polled, only 29% commented that their salary or employee benefits played any part in their decision to leave, reported HR News.
