Think back to the aftermath of the 2008 Recession. There was an abundance of applicants applying for every open position and this is exactly what is on the horizon. Companies are going to be faced with handling the mismatch between the number of open positions and the candidates who may be applying. Our CEO, Eric Smith, published an article discussing this conflict and what he recommends hiring managers do ASAP to prepare themselves.
We get asked all the time, “How can we prepare ourselves for all the changes ahead?” We asked our employees how they are dealing with the unknown and they had some great advice that we feel obligated to share.
The post-pandemic world is going to look a lot different to most. Companies, employees and job applicants will be navigating a new “normal”, without even knowing exactly what that means. As things continue to change, we need to make sure we are flexible, understanding and ready for whatever may come our way.
