In a little over two years, the pandemic has upended the way companies and employees think about work. Here’s how to make sure your hiring and recruiting strategy is in tune with the times.
Review and Streamline
Chances are good that many of your company’s processes were designed for the pre-pandemic world.
Nowadays, the competition for talent is fiercer than it was a couple of months ago. Additionally, the need to hire fast has become widespread due to a combination of factors that include the “Great Resignation” and a global supply chain crisis.
Meet with your HR department to ensure that your hiring cycle takes all these changes into account. Some questions worth asking include:
- Are we taking advantage of the potential of technology and automation?
- Are our background and reference checks standardized?
- How can we communicate even more clearly with applicants?
Involve Only Key Stakeholders
A common reason why the hiring process drags on is that companies try to get too many stakeholders involved.
In order to respond to the challenges of the post-pandemic world, your hiring must be lean and swift. One of the simplest ways to achieve this is by reducing the number of decision makers along the hiring pipeline.
The fewer people are required to give their approval, the faster the hiring process will move along.
Leverage Background Screening
The post-pandemic hiring landscape is more competitive, but also more complex and potentially confusing than it used to be.
For example, millions of workers are contemplating shifting careers. This creates opportunities for companies looking to access new pools of talent, while giving rise to background screening challenges that most companies aren’t equipped to meet.
By partnering with a dependable, efficient background screening company, organizations can limit many of the risks that come with hiring in the post-pandemic world, including:
- Background checks that move at the pace required for rapid hiring
- International screening
- Background checks that span multiple industries
- Social media screening compliant with all applicable laws and regulations
