#127: First Impressions Count

The candidate experience is the first interaction a potential employee with your organization and its culture. If the hiring experience is poor (interviewers who are late, disorganized, intimidating, or disrespectful), your best candidates will likely decline your job offer.

In contrast, a candidate who is treated well, warmly welcomed, and shown an engaging workplace where employees are appreciated, recognized, and valued is much more likely to be excited about your offer.
