If there is one certainty in the labor market it is this: the environment will only become more competitive tomorrow. Today, the global pandemic has resulted in a widespread skills shortage, making it even more difficult for companies to find qualified individuals.
Smart recruiters and hiring managers are always striving to improve their process, either by increasing efficiency or improving outcomes. As companies seek scalable solutions that can support ongoing growth objectives, building a competitive approach to recruitment is critical. But how do savvy recruiting specialists identify, incorporate, and leverage the right tools for reliable outcomes?
Remote interviews became a necessity for most organizations when in person employment interviews were abruptly halted due to social distancing directives in 2020. Today, modern technology has provided hiring managers with a plethora of tools to help facilitate the hiring process, especially when it comes to leveraging video and communication platforms.
The past few years have seen a lot of change in the world of digital interviewing. Since the pandemic, digital interviewing has become more common. In fact, this approach to recruiting has become the norm. New technology lets employers interview candidates in a more efficient and convenient manner, saving both time and money. What’s more, digital interviewing can help identify potential candidates who may not have previously been open to traveling to do an in-person interview.
There are several kinds of unconscious bias that sneak into the hiring process, one of which is similarity bias. This can manifest as a preference for people who are similar in appearance, background, or beliefs. It is usually an unconscious bias and occurs because humans subconsciously tend to see themselves and those who are similar in a favorable light. Understanding the existence and nature of unconscious bias is essential when interviewing and hiring potential employees, as it can lead to bad hiring decisions or limit your candidate options during the hiring process.
There are a variety of factors that can contribute to employee turnover, including job satisfaction, work-life balance, company culture, and a lack of opportunity for career growth. Because of all the different influences that can create a high level of turnover, it's important to implement key metrics and evaluate results carefully before making strategic changes.
It’s a new year and it's a new you! You vowed to stick to that resolution; have you?
Hopefully, most of us are on the right path to rocking that resolution; we have planned out our personal goals and tapped into our friends and family to hold us accountable.

The competitive battle for A-players got even more intense in the last year. Covid-19 brought on seemingly overnight cutbacks, and a mind-blowingly quick transition to working remotely, forcing companies to revise their standard hiring practices practically overnight. As we emerge from the pandemic, the way we all operate and work has changed and along with that, what candidates are looking for in their employer.
While your thoughts may still be focused on gift-giving and family gatherings, the New Year is just around the corner, bringing with it a clean slate, and lots of resolutions to do things differently.
We have news!!! It’s huge! It’s marvelous! And we hope you’re ready for it.
