I'd welcome any comments / observations on how companies feedback to candidates following an interview for HR roles and how you can engage with a company when they fail to notify you of an outcome or provide any meaningful feedback.
Is it just me but I sense that organisations are becoming more and more adverse to giving feedback? Either through fear of legal challenge (subject access request / ET) or simply don't want a difficult conversation. It is somewhat embarrassing for us as an HR profession, where we are seen not to "walk the talk" and where we role model behaviours based on company values of transparency and honesty.
I have recently attended selection processes where I've had to push really hard for an outcome and feedback (and that was after a three stage process) or where simply companies do not even inform you of an outcome. These have been for large organisations in both Public and Private sector where there are clear recruitment processes in place.
Can I ask what are people's experiences?
Do we just shrug our shoulders and say "well that's how it is" or is there a constructive way to challenge these behaviours and receive some useful feedback.
