If ever you were in any doubt about the impact your employer brand has on your bottom line then this is it.
Sainsbury’s have 40,000 vacancies a year.
At a highly conservative response rate of 5 applicants per role, 1 in 300 of the UK population apply to them every year.
The average shopping bill is £136 per week
Therefore rejected applicants have a potential annual spending power of £1bn a year.
It could not be clearer, how we treat candidates is vital to company success.
