Redfish Technology Candidate Satisfaction Survey Results Q3 2014

 

As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, this on-going survey asks candidates placed by the high tech recruiters at Redfish Technology for feedback on the recruiting process. Candidate experience and satisfaction is of great importance to Redfish, as recruiting is a partnership and must be a win-win proposition. The feedback was very positive overall with some areas for improvement identified; most candidates were directly recruited while about a quarter of placements found Redfish opportunities via the company’s marketing efforts.

 

Placed candidates were asked:

  • How well did your recruiter understand your personal goals for job placement?
  • How would you rate the match for the position you were hired for?
  • During which stages of the recruiting process did you have the best communication with your recruiter?
  • During which stages of the recruiting process did you have the least effective communication with your recruiter?
  • Did your recruiter give you an accurate and thorough understanding of the hiring process, role, company?
  • How would you rate your overall experience with Redfish Technology?
  • How likely are you to recommend Redfish to other colleagues or hiring managers? (more…)
