RECRUITMENT AND RETENTION CHALLENGES IN THE NEW ECONOMY

In the hottest job market in decades, workers are holding all the cards. And they’re starting to play dirty. A growing number are "ghosting" their jobs: blowing off scheduled job interviews, accepting offers but not showing up the first day and even vanishing from existing positions – all without giving notice.” This is from a USA Today article published July 19, 2018 titled, Workers are ‘ghosting’ interviews, blowing off work in a strong job market.


The article goes on to talk about the upward trend in this kind of behavior that had started in early 2018 with the stabilization of one of the strong job market’s in the nation’s history. This trend as only increased over time and has left employers feeling much like employees did several years ago during the recession.


“To some extent, employees are giving employers a taste of their own medicine. During and after the Great Recession of 2007 to 2009, when unemployment reached 10 percent, many firms ignored job applicants and never followed up after interviews. ‘Candidates were very frustrated because they felt employers were ghosting on them,’ says Dawn Fay, district president of Robert Half for the New York area.

In this interactive presentation we will tackle the challenge all companies face in this new economy of recruiting and retaining top talent. We will also explore how to best mitigate the impact of ghosting in both the hiring and new hire orientation phases.

Key learning objectives from this program include:

· Define the term ‘ghosting’ in a workplace setting and understand its impact

· Utilize techniques to perform an internal audit of hiring process and identify potential gaps that    could lead to ‘ghosting’

· Take accountability for a culture that may not have actively promoted retention in the past

· Implement at least one new programming feature that will promote employee retention, at all levels
