NH also continuous measure the candidate experience and ask how the applicants experienced the employer brand. This feedback is then used to improve the service towards NH applicants. All rejected candidates are given a special discount code as a token of appreciation for the time and effort they have put in to their application. Despite candidates being rejected they thank NH for their excellent candidate experience. Most applicants want to stay in touch by becoming part of the NH ambassadors network.
