Any job role is likely to receive a huge amount of applications that can be incredibly difficult and time-consuming to assess. RJPs will allow you to dedicate more time and resources to genuine, qualified applicants, as on average, 45% of applicants withdraw from a job application process after completing an RJP. This powerful de-selection tool requires zero administration overhead from you or your team.
Additionally, if a candidate deselects after not liking what they have seen in the Realistic Job Preview, they will not be alienated as customers. As they will have realised that working for the organisation is not right for them as opposed to the organisation itself, no negative feeling will be left.
Employee turnover is a big problem for so many businesses. As the onboarding and eventual dismissal of a bad hire can be extremely costly to a business, making sure that every you recruit into your organisation is the right fit is extremely important. This turnover of staff is not only detrimental to finances, but to morale also. Employees are less likely to be engaged and your team spirit is likely to take a hit when your organisation is gaining and losing members on a regular basis.
If you want to recruit quality, high-performing staff and ensure that they stay a part of your organisation for longer, it is important to be more transparent with your prospective employees from the very beginning. Using a RJP may reduce the amount of applications you receive for a role, but it guarantees that those who do apply will not just be qualified for the role, but they are likely to fit into your existing culture with ease.
No matter what type of organisation you are, offering a job preview that is authentic comes with a huge amount of benefits, so much so that we advise including them as a standard part of any recruitment process.
