A new challenge for high-volume recruiting

Is ghosting coasting the latest challenge for high-volume recruiters?

As if those managing high-volume recruiting didn’t have enough challenges… There seems to be a new ghosting trend popping up. Not just at the interview stage or acceptance phase – where new hires never show up on the first day. Now “ghosting coasting” is becoming a common issue for employers.

To address those challenges, more organizations are offering sign-on bonuses and other high-cost incentives simply to accept a job. As detailed in this quick read from Business Insider, some of those new employees are taking the bonus and running.

The issue may not rest with the talent, however – as frustrating as being ghosted is. The issue is more likely retention. With skyrocketing turnover rates that have largely gone unchecked in recent years, it might be time to focus more on the work environment, pay rates and other key factors that show employees they are valued.
