Improve Candidate Engagement with Chatbots

Improve Candidate Engagement with Chatbots

The Great Resignation has caused monumental shifts across all industries. Recent statistics from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the quit rate remains high at 2.9%, with the unemployment rate at historic lows of 3.6%. Companies can stay ahead of these tight times for hiring and retaining qualified candidates and improve candidate engagement with chatbots. 

How companies can improve candidate engagement with chatbots:

  • Quickly and efficiently engage candidates
  • Streamline the candidate application process
  • Automatically populate profiles
  • Handle standardized practices
  • Increase cost savings in the hiring process
  • Candidate-first design approach

You might wonder how a chatbot could accurately replicate complex processes at your organization. However, experts say a simple litmus test is: Can your processes be expressed as an if/then statement? If so, you can successfully use a chatbot.

Findings by the Staffing Industry Review indicated that the IT industry increased the use of chatbots in their hiring process by 15%. The industrial sector saw a 26% increase, with healthcare having the highest jump at 134%.

Now that the Great Resignation and Great Reshuffling have become top-of-mind for many hiring managers, there is a real opportunity to study how successful management teams have increased employee retention in such high turnover.
