Hiring Post-COVID: 4 Tips to Successful Hiring Post-COVID

By Briah on Mar 22, 2022 7:22:54 PM

Economies around the world are coming up for air as sanctions and lockdowns have been loosened and vaccine roll-outs continue. People are getting ready to shear off their pandemic grown locks and dust off their suits as offices begin to open their doors back up.

But the recovery hasn't quite been even, and the long term effects are certainly being felt.

Human resource management teams and hiring experts around the world have scrambled to adjust to new norms after experiencing the most significant driving force for change in the past few decades. Millions of jobs have been lost, yet recruiters are still struggling to fill open positions with the right employees. In fact, a recent jobs report from the U.S. suggested a loss of momentum in the pandemic recovery — the economy added just 266,000 jobs in April, a quarter of what was expected. In nations where inequality and job opportunities were already scarce, such as Latin America and the Caribbean, the pandemic has underscored the pre-existing inequalities in the region, where the most vulnerable and poorest groups have been disproportionately affected.

Despite the recent job gains, the U.S. labour market is still 6.8 million jobs short of pre-pandemic levels.

So how can companies adjust to post-pandemic ways in terms of the recruitment process? How can recruiters widen their applicant pool and hire the right matches for the company's culture?

High Volume Hiring With AI: A 2022 Guide

By Briah on Mar 3, 2022 1:50:31 PM

With the pandemic suspending much of the normal activity and making millions stay at home over the last two years, the disrupted labour market meant companies lost revenue, and of course, to make matters worse, employees were no longer needed and were cut loose. Those who were fortunate enough to stay with their jobs had to quickly transition to new hybrid work models to limit the spread of the virus. But new figures reveal that a broad recovery led by enhanced productivity and innovation is imminent, and a post-lockdown job boom is indeed underway. In fact, hiring teams are seeing a spike in qualified candidates who are hungry for new jobs and opportunities as labour demand picks up.

Luckily for the hiring managers and talent acquisition leaders who are getting swarmed with job seekers, the pandemic and the adopted hybrid work culture that followed has accelerated the digital shift in the talent acquisition scene. As a result, machine learning and AI recruitment tools are truly revolutionising the talent acquisition process, and it's never been easier to spot quality candidates and make trusted hiring decisions during the recruitment process.

So what exactly is the key to managing high volumes of candidates? How can hiring at scale be made easy?
