NOT PROVIDING REAL FEEDBACK TO CANDIDATES FOR FEAR OF LEGAL REPERCUSSIONS - INFORMED DECISIONS TAKE
Thank you to everyone who participated in our survey where we asked how you feel about recruiters not providing genuine feedback to candidates for fear of getting sued.
Here is Informed Decisions take on this:
We strongly believe that you should definitely provide genuine and meaningful feedback to a rejected candidate.
We also believe that the chances of being sued actually go up if you don't do so.
Providing feedback to a rejected candidate shows respect for their time and investment in your process, and is a testament to the process's fairness and transparency. If a candidate is just rejected without a proper explanation, they are more likely to feel frustrated and not respected, thus will be more likely to sue.
We are highly convinced that if companies will analyze their candidate litigation cases, they will see that most rejected candidates did not receive any feedback.
The fact that there are many corporate recruiters who do provide genuine and detailed feedback to candidates, and also report the beneficial outcomes of such feedback on candidate experience shows that this is possible and has a personal motivation component to it. We at Informed Decisions believe that this should become a standard practice and that its benefits outweigh its costs.
