TRIBE TRIVIA: Word-of-mouth impact of courtesy in the hiring process

Question: How does the level of courtesy afforded job candidates impact the company reputation?

Answer: In Tribe’s national research with job candidates, 78 percent of respondents said that if they experienced poor treatment or lack of courtesy in the hiring process, they would discourage others from applying to that company in the future. In contrast, even if they were rejected for the job but were treated with courtesy during the hiring process, 87 percent would encourage others to apply for positions at the company.
