Have you been on the receiving end of a candidate not showing up to a scheduled interview, a new hire standing you up on their planned first day of work, employees quitting without notice, or workers in general disappearing without a trace?
If so, you’ve been ghosted.
This phenomenon is manifesting itself in a number of ways in professional settings, and unfortunately, the trend seems to be on the rise. A recent survey found that 76 percent of employers have been ghosted by candidates. Not only is being ghosted leaving HR pros feeling confused, let down, and frustrated – it’s costing their businesses a tremendous amount of money and lost productivity.
Join us for this one-hour session where we’ll cover what exactly professional ghosting is, why it can happen, and strategies to combat it.
