Sobering research from PwC (Future of Recruiting survey 2019) which indicates that 49% of professionals have refused a job offer based on previous poor recruiting attempts by that company.
This chimes with TMP Worldwide research into Candidate Experience (CX) which highlights that only 5% of candidates rank their experience as 'excellent'.
What's more whilst 90% of candidates will provide feedback on the recruitment experience (if asked) only 33% have ever been asked to give feedback on the recruitment experience.
So whilst there's lots of talk about CX and the impact on future hiring, it's clear that most employers still aren't putting the candidate at the heart when designing processes.

Imagine finding the candidate of your dreams—great skills, deep experience, and a terrific cultural fit. You’ve spent weeks getting to know them, talking to references and bringing them in for interviews and conversations. You’re certain this is the right person for your team. But they turn you down. Why? They say their recruiting experience was bad—poor enough that they no longer want to work for you. It’s more common than you may think: Nearly half (49%) of job seekers working in in-demand fields like technology say they’ve turned down an offer because of a bad experience during the hiring process.
