Post-Covid19? A dubious question that pops up in peoples’ minds today. Let us keep it optimistic and do the needs for the long-running success for our organization, which is what we all are bound. For the business to succeed even post-Covid19, you will need a recruitment process, that’s ongoing with the flow.
From everything that had happened offline, today, job fairs and events, interviews, and internal assessments are all conducted online, mostly through video calls or via telephones. There are even industries out there who have hired employees but have not yet seen them. From the era where in-office working was highly practised, today, the employees are working remotely from day one. All of these have quite been a challenge for the recruiters. But none of these will keep going, and things will change to another normal.
Post- Covid19, industries will start working like how they used to be. Interviews, job fairs, and events will have the liberty to be conducted offline.
- By the time comes, assess the skill gaps, talent shortages, and start hiring now. It is critical because it is not possible to make a move rapidly unless we know what the company requires, and if you don’t start hiring now, then you are losing valuable time. To keep the company going, it is highly advised to keep the process moving.
- Always be prepared for remote work in the future. Research reports form Valoir says that, as a result of Covid19, has had only a 1% reduction on work productivity and over 40% of employees prefer working remotely. It is proven repeatedly through researches that, remote workers get the job done better and faster even during the pandemic. So, once you hire the candidate, keep it open to work offline or online after the covid scenario is relaxed and avoid the risk of losing high-quality talents.
- Adjust the policies depending on the changing norms. For instance, the work from home policies must cover anticipations like, their duties, the medium of communication to keep the work environment engaged, pay & benefits, and work time. It gives the employees and candidates a feeling of promised and stable ongoing job.
It is time to give all these a thought now, instead of waiting for the Covid19 to recover. It keeps the company prepared for any hurricanes that are awaiting out there.
