Businesses are ignoring this silent $7.8 trillion productivity killer - Disengaged employees according to research by Gallup. Nearly 41% of employees cite engagement or culture as the #1 reason for quiet quitting.
Haystack believes first impressions set the tone for the entire employer/employee relationship and disengagement starts during the hiring process. According to Forbes, "Candidates who have a positive experience during the recruitment process are more likely to engage with the organization. They are likely to be more interested in learning about your company, its culture and its values. This can lead to better engagement and retention rates."
The hiring process has become a faceless, automated affair, often leaving both candidates and employers feeling disconnected and dissatisfied. This environment is particularly detrimental to employers because of the lack of candidate engagement. The result is that the best candidates often either don’t apply or drop out of the hiring process, leaving only lower quality & disengaged candidates. Either the position goes unfilled, or substandard and disengaged employees are added to the team putting a drain on productivity and company culture.
“The current hiring process is a disservice to both candidates and employers,” asserts Frank Dal Bello, CEO of Haystack. “By relying on impersonal algorithms and automated systems, we’re missing out on the human element that is essential for building strong professional relationships and making informed hiring decisions.”
Haystack, a pioneering video hiring platform, is revolutionizing the hiring landscape by injecting human connection back into the early steps of the hiring process. Through personalized videos, Haystack empowers employers with an opportunity to connect with candidates on a deeper level, conveying their company culture, values, and the unique benefits of working there - before the candidate even applies for the job.
“We’re calling our software a Candidate Experience Platform” says Frank. “We help employers craft the perfect first impression for their candidates through video. The best candidates can now be engaged from the moment they discover the job posting. And when you show your candidates that you care about their experience in the hiring process, you’re really telling them that you care about your employees. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true, which is why the current hiring landscape is so ineffective.”
As a bonus, Haystack also provides candidates the ability to showcase their true selves, highlighting their attitudes, communication abilities, and personalities beyond the confines of traditional resumes and cover letters.
Haystack is already making waves in the hiring industry, with a growing number of companies embracing its human-centric approach. Early adopters have reported significant improvements in candidate engagement, quality of hire, and overall hiring efficiency.
“Haystack has transformed our hiring process,” remarked Scott Desgrosseilliers of CEO - Wicked Reports. “By connecting with candidates on a personal level, we’ve been able to identify and attract individuals who are not only qualified but also a great fit for our company culture. Haystack has been a game-changer for us.”
