Survale was featured in a recent article on HR News called “Candidate Resentment Is on the Rise.” The article focuses on a rise in candidate resentment as measured by the Talent Board’s annual Candidate Experience Research and Awards Program (CandEs).
The data seems to suggest that candidates were more understanding of less than stellar experiences during the pandemic. But worldwide, resentment has been growing over the last couple of years. While North America did see a dip in resentment last year, resentment still remains at all time highs, according to the Talent Board.
Talent Board President Kevin Grossman cites the top three reasons for candidate resentment today:
- Recruiting processes that take too long
- A lack of respect for candidates’ time
- Pay less than desired
