Hiring Warehouse - Ghosting

Is it just our industry (wholesale plumbing) or is everyone seeing a lot of ghosting going on?  We have hired a couple new employees they show up for few days then they just don't show up or call or respond to anything at all.  I have seen this several times this year.  It's just crazy.  In my 16+ years this is the first time I've seen so much of it!

  • I am in wholesale distribution and have seen the same.  We have tried many different tactics to improve our retention with mixed results.  Ultimately improving our onboading and creating a "buddy" system has had the greatest impact in retaining new hires.

     

    We have also had many candidates ghosting post offer which we have not been able to improve much.
