Is outdated offer paperwork losing you recruiters?

By GSR2R Admin | 6th February 2023

We all know that getting recruiters to offer stage is hard work.

Don’t make the effort only to lose them at the last hurdle. Outdated offer letters and contracts CAN put high-performing recruiters off. And that leaves you back at square one.

Currently, at GSR2R, we are spending more time than ever negotiating contracts at offer and acceptance stage, due to candidates being wary of companies that send over outdated or incorrect information.

Does your paperwork at offer stage reflect who your business is today?

What I find is happening is that recruiters are meeting companies and are going through a detailed process to get to know the business and people. They’re engaged and ready to join. The hard work of finding great recruiters is done.

However, recruiters are being put off companies, due to poor or out-of-date paperwork being sent, which can reflect the opposite of the company they have just met. Therefore, letting companies down at the very last hurdle.

Common mistakes that turn recruits off at offer stage

  1. Taking too much time to receive the paperwork.
  2. Negative language that doesn’t mirror the people they have meet.
  3. Incorrect information.
  4. Too basic and not enough information, i.e. no commission or benefits information.
  5. Clauses that are out of date. For example, hybrid working or updated benefits.
  6. Clauses around the use of a personal LinkedIn account that are incorrect legally.
  7. Spelling and grammatical errors.

What your paperwork says about your business?

Your paperwork at offer stage is an extension of your business and must reflect the process you and the potential employee have been through, together.

WITH all the effort to get your candidate to offer stage, make sure your paperwork isn’t the reason a great recruiter declines your offer.

Let’s chat to find out how your paperwork can be right for your business and engaging for your new hire.
