"If you're an organisation that is intending to grow, do you help or hurt your brand by providing constructive feedback after an interview?"

This was the topic of conversation in the latest "Preparing the Unprepared" interview with Lewis Adams-DunstanAbigail (Abby) Shockley, PhD, Data Science lead at Petram Data and Chad Oda, Partner at Chatmode.

Many businesses are really hesitant to provide negative feedback after an interview.

Why is that? 

Could it be caused by having too many interviewers in a panel interview, so the feedback is nigh on impossible to aggregate?

Maybe there are liability or compliance concerns about giving negative feedback (recruiters alleviate that risk...)

Maybe, it's just easier all round to send a generic "Sorry, you haven't been successful" message.

But is that helpful to anyone?

It doesn't help the candidate, or maybe even the employer brand, for sure.
