OnSpot Experience
OnSpot Experience

OnSpot aspires to make itself a place where everyone wants to be. It's one of the many things that the OnSpot Tribe prides of, meaning that it aspires to provide an environment that fosters growth, learning, and collaboration. In line with this, it makes sure that everyone will be able to realize it upon their first interaction with the company. That is where the OnSpot recruitment kicks in!


Recruiting new employees is a crucial process for any organization. However, finding the right candidates and attracting them to apply is only half the battle. Once candidates have applied, it is essential to ensure they have a positive experience throughout the hiring process. In fact, Farndale and colleagues (2014) found that candidates who had a positive experience were more likely to accept job offers, recommend the company to others, and apply to the company in the future.


Aside from the fact that a negative candidate experience can damage a company's reputation and deter potential hires from applying in the future, it kind of defeats the core motivation that drives the whole OnSpot Experience in recruitment – to make it an ideal workplace to be.


How does the OnSpot Experience work?


Transparent and User-friendly Application Process: During the application process, applicants normally have a lot of questions in mind that is essential for them to gain a better understanding of the job and the company and make an informed decision whether or not to pursue the opportunity. Some of these questions includes the job requirements, responsibilities, company culture, company core values, salary package and other compensations (Koc & Boone, 2019; Bauer & Erdogan, 2011; Welle, et al., 2001), and the list goes on.


At OnSpot, we created a place where interested applicants can go and have all these in one click – our Career Page. In the said page, all our job openings are displayed, and applicants can hop in on any job they are interested to apply. For each job, it includes a culture-driven and comprehensive job description that says it all. It discusses the OnSpot culture, our core values, the high level and specific responsibilities, as well as the technical requirements, and general qualifications. They can also directly opt to apply on that same page.


Warm and Mental Health-friendly Interview Experience: Job interviews can be perceived as scary or anxiety-provoking by job applicants. In fact, Smith and Weissbrod (2016) found that job interview anxiety is a common experience among job seekers, and that it can lead to negative emotional outcomes such as stress and feelings of inadequacy. Therefore, OnSpot strives to change this perception and provide a positive atmosphere for applicants during interviews.


This does not mean that the interviewers will be lenient to applicants. It just allows them to be able to breathe and express themselves more and confidently (Ryan & Blacksmith, 2012) which in turn enables the interviewers to properly assess them at their best.
