Definition: Employee Ghosting is the phenomenon that occurs when an employee stops showing up at work without giving any notice, and in the process often eludes their employer's attempts to reach them.
The term 'ghosting' itself is taken from the world of online dating and personal relationships in which an individual abruptly ends the relationship one had without any explanation by dropping out of communication. This phenomenon of ghosting is also applied to the workplace. Recruiter ghosting occurs when a recruiter stops communicating with their candidates midway during the hiring process.
