What candidates say about gamification as part of their job application

What candidates say about gamification as part of their job application

Candidate experience means ensuring that your candidates have a good time during the total application procedure. Now, how hard can it be? Well, it’s actually not that hard. The problem, however, is that we tend to focus on the wrong aspects and undervalue Candidate Experience as a business driver.

4 things candidates hate most about traditional assessments

The very first moment where you can make it or break is not after the candidate applied; it’s at the point where your candidates start their application. 

These are the four things candidates dislike the most about traditional assessments:

  1. Not receiving any feedback after an assessment;
  2. Perceiving the assessment process as being not transparent;
  3. Nerve wracking, boring assessments;
  4. Long application processes.

Be an employer who gives something in return to all candidates

Employers and candidates are equals. Candidates invest time in employers and should get something in return. So, boost your employer brand as well as candidate experience by using Equalture. How? Well….

Create an understandable journey for your applicant

We believe applying should be easy, comfortable and without any surprises. In one word – it should be understandable. It isn’t an experience that is characterized by the feeling of being assessed, instead it is an experience that allows the candidates to showcase themselves in terms of potential and ambitions.

Make the application experience fun

Candidates put quite some time and effort into applying to one of your jobs, so the least you can do is make sure they have fun while doing this. Our neuro assessment games measure (soft) skills and personality traits, every game takes on average 2 to 4 minutes and best part of it all – they are fun! In a few minutes, not only is it possible to gather a large amount of valuable information that helps make better hiring decisions, but also create a candidate experience that will leave a smile on their face. So, it’s truly a win-win situation!
