Transparency is becoming an increasingly important value in the hiring process. Employers want to know that they are hiring candidates who are interested in the company, qualified for the position and pose a low flight-risk. Meanwhile, candidates want to know they are entering into a position that is aligned with their skill sets and career path, and that the workplace offers a good culture and engaging management.
Gone are the days when businesses had a wealth of qualified candidates competing over every job opening. With U.S. unemployment hovering around historic lows of 4 percent, a growing number of jobs being created nationwide, and more than 10,000 baby boomers retiring daily, organizations are struggling to recruit top talent from the market while retaining their current employees.
