Did you know: It's in your company's best interest to tactfully turn down a candidate?

by , 27 October 2014
Most recruiters are of the view that once a candidate doesn't make the cut, there's absolutely no need to get back to them.

They simply move on and the poor candidate is left in the dark and eventually figures out that the application wasn't successful and they're hurt about not getting a response.

While the candidate will eventually get over it, your company could suffer irreparable damage.

Don't believe us?

Keep reading to discover why it's in your company's best interest to turn down a candidate with tact.

Here's why it's important to turn down a candidate with tact

 
Social networks have made it easier for people to voice their opinions – good and – bad freely.
 
Statistics released by World Wide Worx and Fuseware late last year found that in South Africa, there are:
 
  • 9.4 million active Facebook users;
  • 7.4 million active Mxit users; and
  • 5.5 million active Twitter users.
 
The people who apply for jobs in your company are part of these users.
 
So, if you don't reject a candidate with tact, he will talk about your company on social media and word will spread like wildfire that you're that employer who doesn't turn down candidates properly.
 
In fact, socialmediatoday.com says, 'being treated poorly after applying for a job always makes for a good story and word travels fast if it's a particularly bad experience.'
 
The site adds, 'it simply makes good business sense to treat job applicants in a dignified and professional fashion. Not only does it go a long way toward soothing wounded feelings, it elevates the perception of the business and creates goodwill.'
 
It's that simple.
 
Check out this article. In it, experts behind the Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service give you tips on how to reject a job applicant with tact.
