Patrick O’Rahilly, manufacturing professional, serial entrepreneur, and founder of FactoryFix.com, recently discussed the trend of ghosting among job seekers in Forbes. O’Rahilly is a Forbes Business Council member. Read the full article here.
According to a February 2021 report by Indeed, 28% of job applicants had ghosted a prospective employer over the past year. That is up from 18% in 2019, despite a global pandemic wreaking havoc on the job market and creating a shortlist of employment options. The numbers are even more startling from the employer side, with 76% reporting they have been ghosted in the past year and 57% saying it is more common than ever before.
O’Rahilly shared, “We see this all the time at FactoryFix.com. Hiring managers hold the cards too close to their chest. I suggest complete transparency from the start. In fact, pay and salary rates should ideally be on the initial job posting. We’ve seen jobs that do not post a salary or pay rate receive only about half the applicants compared to jobs that do.”
FactoryFix is a recruiting platform that connects manufacturers to vetted, skilled workers. The platform’s purpose is two-fold: 1) to help companies with hiring by providing access to a unique talent pool, vetting applicants, providing salary insights, generating job listings, and other tools to streamline the process. 2) It also allows job seekers to create profiles to easily find employers that fit their skill-sets, thus maximizing their earning potential.
Patrick O’Rahilly, Founder of FactoryFix, explains, “The result is a tremendous time and costs savings when compared to hiring through a traditional staffing agency or job board. Both have their advantages, but staffing firms are expensive, and job boards require a lot of time and effort to sift through unqualified candidates. The FactoryFix platform takes the best of each and combines it into a turn-key hiring solution made exclusively for this industry.
Companies that engage with a subscription are guaranteed qualified workers for their open positions. Some of the most popular jobs on FactoryFix include operator, maintenance, welding, machining, and automation roles. Explore more than 250,000 manufacturing jobs for the most robust job board available today: https://jobs.factoryfix.com.
Few hiring solutions offer quantifiable success rates in matching top talent to positions with the appropriate skill sets. Only through a robust platform that incorporates deeper-level matching can hiring efficiency be measured and maximized.
The results are clear, FactoryFix customers are benefiting from:
- At least 50% reduction in overall cost per hire
- 4 times faster to fill positions than traditional staffing
- 10 times more qualified candidates than posting on a job board
FactoryFix guarantees a total number of hires per year to ensure that customers meet their desired cost-per-hire target. The company recently introduced a 3-directional chat service, TalentText, to further expedite the hiring process. TalentText is an SMS messaging feature that connects applicants with managers via a text conversation, helping managers to engage directly, ease conversation flow, and ensure candidates actually show up to interviews. It allows a connection with candidates five times faster with straightforward, comfortable, and immediate access to messages via mobile devices. Request a demo.
