5 Reasons Why Job Seekers Abandon Your Application

You spend a lot of time and resources generating interest in your jobs. You advertise open roles, optimize your career site, and write thoughtful job descriptions. Candidates click, they start filling out an application and then… nothing.

What would cause a job seeker to start but fail to complete a job application? (The industry averages 90 percent drop off.)

Join us for an informative webinar featuring Senior Vice President of Products Jeff Kreutz as he explains the reasons why job seekers don’t submit applications they have started. This webinar will address these questions and more:

- How are job seekers really searching and applying for jobs?

- What prevents a job seeker who has started an application from completing it?

- What is an optimal candidate experience to improve application rate?

  • The 360 View of Family Leave: Organizational Support for Working Parents Recorded: Jul 28 2016 59 mins
    Jenna N. Filipkowski, PH.D.- Director of Research, Human Capital Institute Padraic McConville- EVP, Corporate Development at
    While some organizations remain unresponsive to the transitions in their employees’ lives, smart companies understand that proactively supporting employees through important life events is not just compassionate, it’s good business. More and more high-profile companies such as Google, Netflix, Adobe, and Microsoft are offering extended paid maternity and paternity leave as a talent attraction and retention tool. Having family-friendly benefits and policies is a start, but it is not enough. The most positive impact on organizational outcomes occurs when leaders foster a supportive work-life culture.

    In this signature research conducted in partnership between Kindercare Education and HCI, we explore how organizations are supporting working parents before, during, and after their leave for a birth or an adoption. Based on a research study of almost 300 U.S. organizations, you will learn:

    Benchmarks and future plans for family-friendly benefits and policies, including paid leave
    How effective these work-life offerings are at attracting talent and preventing turnover
    How HR functions can help working parents assimilate back into workforce regardless of the amount of leave taken

    All registrants will receive a copy of the research report.
