#EndGhosting Report

It’s not necessarily news that a bad candidate experience can have a detrimental effect on both brands and those applying to work with them.

With anecdotal evidence suggesting that ghosting is on the rise as the effects of covid on the job market become ever clearer, we wanted to take a closer look at the extent of the problem. Why is this happening? And what can be done? We commissioned independent research to survey 2000 UK adults to discover what’s really going on.

Research summary

A whopping two thirds of job applicants in the UK have been ghosted in the course of their job search and perhaps it’ll come as no surprise that almost all of them (94%) said it left them with a negative perception of the company they applied to.
