Dear All,

Recently we have encountered a problem "people accepting offer and declining it just before the joining date". This purely seems to be a case of misusing the offer for getting higher benefit.

These kind of issues have become frequent and this is just not accepted because recruitment process takes lot of time, energy, money and resources. We tried finding out the reason why this could happen, and i feel there is high competition in the industry on job offers and hiring, recruitment has become one of the biggest challenge.

I would like to know from knowlegable people how or what are the best tips to

- Convert the offers to joiness.
- What action an HR takes on people who play around with a company's offer.
- And what can be done for a candidates who declines to join at the last minute of their joining. (the kind mailers or notice etc)

Please share with us some of the best practices followed in the industry to counter this problem.

I am sure this situation is faced by many of us but putting this condition in a letter of Offer is likely to repel many a genuine applicants also. Those who are likely to have demand  in the market may not be keen in applying to an organization which has this practice.
Since it is not a prevelant practice in India, its implementation by one or two or couple of companies is not likely to be  successful for the hiring company. However, the industry leaders can afford to implement this if Indian laws permit it.

The fact is that refusals are becoming more frequent now.  Even though most of these ideas may be difficult to  implement but we still need to talk about this issue.
