Pivotally, it frazzles me that the penny has not dropped everywhere, just yet. Are you ready for the naked truth?

I am ready to pull back the recruitment curtain: We still witness excellent candidates going through ludicrous long interview processes with supposedly so-called leading state-of-the-art hospitality companies only to be left up in the air without updates for weeks after having spent hours interviewing.โ€ฆ

Well emphasized that these are top-tier candidates with an amazing experience, reputation, and drive โ€ฆand don’t be mistaken they are smart enough to move right on to the competitionโ€ฆ and tell all their friends and colleagues about their โ€œstellar experienceโ€. A survey showed that people share their bad experiences with another 15 people โ€ฆMore reasons for us to not stay quiet about this matter in question until this issue is from the table for now and for all.

Why is this still happening?
I call it 2โ€™S: Silent Sabotage.

It might be that we still have people working in HR that are stuck in egotism and power gamesโ€ฆBut then what about the management, are leaders looking the other way?

To all leaders: Are you aware of how your candidates get treated?
Imagine for a second how the candidate experience affects your brand reputation, thatโ€™s recruitment marketing at its best when it could be done so easily!

When you genuinely love people you will do the right thing.
Make sure you have people in charge who love people!

In the name of this beautiful industry, and all the passionate and creative humans that make the impossible possible, around the world: In hindsight, we always say if only I would have known, well thatโ€™s where we come in, we splash just a bit of cold water on the hype topic: Silent quitting. Before we tackle silent quitting, let’s be loud about hiring sustainably, smartly, and fairly.

To all hiring managers, we plead you to stay true to the industry that is all about people, let us do it for the generations to come.

Humility in Service starts with the very first touchpoint of the candidates. We ought to treat candidates exemplary because of all we stand for, how otherwise will your brand withstand the future that is already here?
