Professionals Are 'Ghosting' On The Job And Employers Are Struggling To Keep Up


A phenomenon we've heard a lot about in the dating world has infiltrated the workplace: ghosting.

What is ghosting, you ask? If you are actually asking, you're a lucky soul. Maybe it's never happened to you, or maybe you just didn't know what to call it, but ghosting is when someone just disappears on you. No call, no email, no goodbye and absolutely no explanation.

It's a pretty horrible feeling to get ghosted on, and it's no longer something people only risk when it comes to love. According to trending discussions on Linkedin, it's become a problem for recruiters and agencies as well. But most people seem to think it's a bit different when it happens at work than when it happens in a relationship.
