In this Tactical Tuesday episode, Sam and Vivien discuss the concept of pre-boarding — which is basically the period between accepting a job offer and the start date. Throughout, they emphasize the importance of continuing to build trust with candidates during this time to ensure a smooth transition.

They also discuss proactive strategies for addressing counter-offers, managing benefits and family considerations, providing information to candidates, creating a safe space for questions, and minimizing ghosting through proactive communication. A whole lot of information jam-packed into fifteen minutes — you’re going to want to add this to your playlist!
